The Photo Manager is accessed on a Patient's Chart by clicking on the pencil icon in the upper right corner of the Patient Profile Photo. There are four tabs for Personal Photos, Medical Photos, Drivers License and Insurance Card.] Once a photo is uploaded and cropped, a thumbnail will appear under the Personal Photos tab or the Medical Photos tab in the photo manager. Right-clicking on any thumbnail will display a menu of possible actions for that photo.
Set a Personal Photo as a Profile Picture
Any personal photo may be used as the patient's profile picture – simply click on a thumbnail or right-click and select Set as Profile Picture from the menu that appears.
Assign a Medical Photo to an Encounter Note
A previously-uploaded medical photo may be assigned to an encounter note using the open encounter note's Attach Document or Image function. Click Select Existing Pt Image to choose which photo to attach. You may also upload a new image to attach to the encounter note. Once uploaded, the image will appear among the patient's medical photos.
View Full Size
Any uploaded photo may be viewed at its original size. For medical photos, simply click on the thumbnail; for either medical or personal photos, right-click on the thumbnail and select View Full Size from the menu that appears. The enlarged photo will appear in a new tab or window, depending upon your browser settings.
Delete Uploaded Photo
Thumbnails may be deleted from the photo manager by right-clicking on the thumbnail of the photo to be deleted and selecting Delete from the menu that appears. Deleting a thumbnail:
- Causes the thumbnail to disappear,
- Disassociates a deleted medical photo from any encounter note to which it has been assigned, and
- Makes a deleted personal photo unavailable for use as a profile picture. If the current profile picture is deleted and there are other personal photos available, the profile picture will default to the most recently uploaded personal photo. If there are not other personal photos for that patient, the profile will display a white box with a generic profile image.
Add a Driver's License Photo from Patient Portal
Patients may upload a photo or scan of their Driver's License by clicking on the My Account Details menu option in the Patient Portal.
This is stored within the Patient Chart in the Photo Manager, accessed by clicking on the pencil icon at top right of patient's profile picture. The Driver's License number and state are stored in the Patient Information block under the Basic Data tab. You can click on the camera icon from here to also access Photo Manager and view/upload patient Driver's License.
Add Insurance Card Photo from Patient Portal
Patients may upload a photo or scan of their Insurance Card to the Patient Portal the same way as their Driver's License by clicking on the My Account Details menu option. This is stored within the Patient Chart in the Photo Manager, accessed by clicking on the pencil icon in top right corner of patient's profile picture.
