End of Year Care for THOMAS & 1st Friday call for December 2016

Some ideas for you before you post any charges for 2017:

  • Complete all posting of payments and charges that you have received up until 12/31/2010. Do not post 2011 information until this is completed.
  • Run all the reports your accountant wants for year end. Ask the CPA now if they have all the documentation they need BEFORE you post next year's stuff.


Meridian Issues

Many of our clients are receiving a communication from Meridian regarding Taxonomy code to be required on all claims effective 01/01/2017.

At this time know that Genius Solutions is are working with Meridian to determine the what, where and how of this recent change. 

At this time there is nothing for you to do inside your eThomas program.  Genius Solutions will post more once this issue is resolved.

2017 ICD-10 Revisions are Here!

ICD-10 code changes have been released for the 2017 fiscal year.  Genius is making your update to the 2017 codes push-button easy! But... First you have to update your eTHOMAS program.

Genius made updates to the ICD-10 master list. You will be able to import diagnosis codes directly from this list.  To obtain the new master list, you will need to update your eTHOMAS.  The version that contains these updates is 9.5.21.

If you would like to be an early adopter, you can call support this next week, and they will get you updated and started. After Sept. 19th you may do a regular THOMAS update to receive the same final 9.5.21 version, and will not have to call support.

For 2017, there are 1,974 additional diagnosis codes, 311 deleted codes, and 425 revised codes. The coding changes are to be used on claims with dates of service from October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017.   To view a complete list of changes visit for professional claims you can view them HERE.  

After your update is complete, you'll have the ability to see changes to your codes that were previously imported.  Under the Utilities Tab >Maintenance>Check Dx Codes will provide you with a list of codes that are loaded into your THOMAS program, that no longer match the master list.  This will allow you to update the new revisions and deletions from the previous code set.

You will also have the ability to go to Code Files>Procedures>Diagnosis and choose the import feature.  Under the "Select For" drop down, you will notice a new category under each breakdown, with (2017) in front of the description.  These breakdowns include only the newly added codes for the 2017 fiscal year.

Coming soon! Stay tuned to our YouTube Channel for video.

You can update to eTHOMAS v9.5.20 now!

Genius Solutions is excited to release our latest version of eTHOMAS, version 9.5.20.

This version is the first step in allowing you, our clients, to update your information at Genius Solutions without additional paperwork or phone calls (i.e. things like Contacts, keys, new doctors, etc.).  The first feature that has been added is Contacts.  Contacts are representatives from you business who Genius Solutions Support Department are able to work with, because you have authorized them as contacts for us.

The Support Department is currently contacting clients to update and some additional processing must be completed manually by us.  What does this mean for our clients?  If you are currently running version 9.5.20, you can contact our Support Department (option 6) and they will complete the short manual process, and walk you through updating your Contacts. If you prefer to wait, a Support Technician will contact you soon. Either way, if you update your THOMAS to this new version or newer, before we call each other, you will speed up the update process.

*Please Note: You do not have to call us when updating. Your program will not be hindered in any way if we cannot do the manual update tweaks for you immediately after you update. BUT, we will want to/need to do this manual adjustment for you as other future features will depend on it, so go ahead and update, we will be calling.
