In a busy practice it can be hard to stay on top of the influx of paperwork that comes across the reception counter. To ensure important medical records, letters, and other crucial documents don’t get missed after your scanning is finished, Genie provides you a helpful reminder in the form of the ‘Scans to Review’ system.
Before you begin
In Special > ImagePro Control > Process Folder, when a user links a patient to a scanned file they can choose to right-click in the To be Reviewed By column. They are then presented with a list of all usernames. In this list they can choose to assign you as a reviewer by selecting your name before processing the image.
Marking a scan for review is optional, but many practices find that this is a handy tool, as reception staff do the batch scanning, and the doctors need to be alerted somehow that there is a scan in Genie that requires their attention.
Once a scan is marked as to be reviewed, the tab will appear in the Navigation Palette of the provider who has been assigned to review it.
You can also access the Scans to Review area through Open > Scans For Review. In this area you will be able to see the name of the patient and provider concerned, the scan date, and the tick box for marking this scan as reviewed.
Providers can review a scan by highlighting it, then simply tick the Reviewed box. Alternatively, right-click in the Redirect To column to redirect to another provider. Providers with access (File > Edit Groups) can use the drop-down menu at the top of the window to view scans for review by other users, however users may only mark their own scans as Reviewed.
The Scans to Review window relies on the programs Ghostscript and QuickTime, so if you are using a Windows machine and are unable to preview scans in this area when you single click on them, please ensure you have these two programs installed on your machine.
