Microsoft Security Essentials Causing eTHOMAS Issues

It appears that Microsoft did some updating and it is causing many of you problems.  Clients running Microsoft Security Essentials might have your eTHOMAS icon missing or you are getting a message when trying to start eTHOMAS saying "Can't Run eTHOMAS".  The problems seems to be that MS Security Essentials is quarantining your program as a virus.  The support lines are being swamped.  To get back up and running we have created a step-by-step document for you that will allow you to exclude eTHOMAS' eclient from the antivirus program.  

Download the pdf here.  

If you are still having problems after, please call in and we'll get to you as soon as possible.

Two Special Genius Post Oct 1st ICD-10 Calls


Genius Solutions is planning two special conference calls after the October 1st ICD-10 deadline to address up-to-the minute news, tips, and resolutions to any ICD-10 issues that our clients are experiencing after the October 1st deadline.

There are two dates scheduled, Tuesday 10/6/2015 and Friday 10/9/2015. Both calls will be at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time.

Possible Writepad Fee Slip Issue


IF you are currently having a problem with the fee slip in Writepad transferring your billing code information over to eTHOMAS, Writepad is aware of the issue and is working on it. 

Per Writepad, you can work around this, for now, by turning the automatic fee slip option off and manually sending for the codes to go in the ICD10 box.  Because you are completing out the note in Writepad, there should be no "double sending" of charges once you can automatically send again.
