Correspondence Window

 

The Correspondence window of the Patient Explorer is used to create new items of correspondence relating to the patient. These correspondence items can include letters, medical certificates, operation reports and so forth, limited only by the types of templates you have set up.

The Correspondence window also contains a list of all letters that have been created in the patient's file, allowing you to edit, copy, export, and print them. You may also import items of correspondence that are external to MedicalDirector Blue Chip, if they have been saved in 'rich text' (.rtf) format.
