Modifying & Inserting an image/fax/scan to patient chart – Image Browser
- Select desired Image(s) file by highlighting from the Scan/Fax Server window in the upper left corner and move to ‘add to chart window’ by selecting "move to input pane" (or use right arrow hot key). Note: single clicking on image name will display it in the thumbnail and full view window.
- Fax Server Clients Only: To view faxes in incoming list, 4-Sight Fax Client must be turned on (this connects to the Fax Server) and faxes must be downloaded to the local computer. This is done by viewing it in the Incoming Queue window and clicking on desired fax files to download to your PC (single click downloads, double click opens to full screen AND downloads to PC). Faxes are stored in the pre-set Data folder (see page 2, pre-set user preferences).
- Make image modifications with buttons: cropping, rotation of 180º (or shift & click mouse to make 90º rotation), filter (brightening) etc.
- Further modifications can also be achieved pertaining primarily to multipage faxes;
- Remove Cover Page (hot keys apple/ctrl X),
- Duplicate (hot keys apple/ctrl D) creates duplicate files in the browser list and numbers each copy sequentially (eg. 2.tiff, 3.tiff, etc.). This would apply when one fax pertains to more than one patient. User can then modify individual files and delete pages that do not apply OR Shift/click on duplicate button to break a multiple page fax into single page files and delete the original.
- Fit/Scroll (hot keys apple/ctrl F) fits entire image to view within screen, or click this button again to return to original view,
- D.P. – deletes the current viewed page within a multi-page fax (move to page you wish to delete using arrows at bottom left of screen).
- Split/180 This splits and rotates multipage faxes (as multiple pages can not just be rotated)
- Note: passive feature – import buttons that don’t apply to selected file types are greyed-out to prevent user from selecting the wrong import option.
- Attach desired image(s) to a specific patient chart by entering patient’s name in the patient field in the lower screen, and fill out date, physician, report type and priority status. Notes or Specialist referral names can be added in the Comment bar relating to image details.
- Status buttons Urgent, Normal, or Low, will assign a priority. Note that the ‘Urgent’ priority assignment automatically creates a task, which is then assigned to the physician (marked as ‘DI Urgent Report’). This task will pop up on the physician’s screen if he/she is logged in. Priority ‘normal’ and ‘low’ will not create tasks, and will be listed according to priority, then date within the DI Review Window. Program automatically defaults to ‘normal’ status if not modified
- To remove a scan and clear the ‘Selected Reports to Add to Chart’ list, select the ‘reset list’ button – this clears the whole list and returns them to the left hand screen) and allows user to start over.
- When satisfied that selection is ready, select ‘import picture’ or ‘import scan(s) or fax’, or hot key ‘end’ or ‘add scan’ depending on file type to place image in patient record (program will ftp image to server).
- ‘Cleanup’ button deletes .tmp files and empties folders created by the scanning process.
- Info button provides file info on dimensions, file type, etc.
- Hot Keys:
- right arrow key to move the files from left to right screen
- left arrow key will erase patient’s name and take user to patient entry line
- ‘End’ to import scan
- ‘Esc’ to close window (done)
- ‘Home’ for rotation of image 180º
