Lytec Revenue Management

How to setup Revenue Management for Lytec and Change Healthcare


1.  On any workstation (including the server) that will use Revenue Management, adjust the following settings.  You can search for the following settings via the Task Bar:

3. UAC (User Account Control); Should be set to the lowest setting, “Never Notify”.

*Note: You may need to login as “Administrator” to adjust this setting.

This setting may be modified via the registry, however this is only recommended for Advanced Users, if you are unfamiliar with modifying the registry, please call support for help.

Set “EnableLUA” = “0”
