Before installation

Before you start setting up the EMIS plugin, you might need to make a few changes within EMIS Web. If your practice intends to use the IVR(Interactive Voice Response) within the plugin, we recommend having a dedicated machine, which is running it’s own user account for EMIS and can run practically 247.

Creating an account in EMIS for the IVR

To create an account for the IVR to use exclusively, first open the EMIS Web client as a administrator account.

Open the “Organisation Configuration” settings

From this view you will be able to add a new user account to EMIS.

Here is the first options you will see when creating this user account

Make sure you have the “User must change password on next login” tick box, unticked as this account will not actually log into an EMIS Web Client.

Next you will need to configure the permissions for the account so that it can actually perform all of the nice automation features.

When you click the button on the right you will see the following screen

The permissions this account needs access to are : B0560, B0820 and B8012

Advanced configuration

We have tried to create an simple out of the box ready to run system. However, you may wish to tweak some things within your own system, the following section details what tweaks can be made.

All sound files within the menus can be replaced with your own. To update any, upload the relevant recording to the “Voice Prompts” section in your babblevoice domain

We have discovered an issue with other applications installed on the same computer as EMIS. Another application started loading slowly - as it was using an old EMIS dll instead of an up to date one provided by EMIS. Opening EMIS product manager, right clicking on EMIS Web and reinstall product fixed this issue.
