Scanning Set-Up & Options

There are several options that you can set to customize Scanning settings for your needs. To access the Scanning Options area, Click Tools, Options, and Select Scanning from the tree view.

SOAPware Scanning allows you to initiate an image scan from within SOAPware, and to have the resulting image imported directly into the current Document as a new Document Item.

Setting Options

Setting Options

These settings determine the quality of your scanned images. Remember that the higher resolution you set, the clearer the picture, but the slower the scanning time will be. To find these, go to Tools - Options.

Resolution: This controls the dots per inch. The higher the resolution is set, the larger your database will get.

Color Type: You will be able to select Black and White, Gray or Color. Black and White will be the most accurate and fastest option. If you want to convert color documents, you certainly can. Both Gray and Color will affect the Bit Depth of the conversion as well.

Bit Depth: Affects the granularity of the conversion. If you have a Gray or Color type set, the higher the bit depth you select, the clearer the picture will be.

With an unsigned Document open in SOAPware, click Docutainers, New Image from Scan or click the scan button in the Common Toolbar. This will launch the scanning software for your default scanner. Follow the manufacturer's directions to scan as you normally would.

Scanned Images

After the scan is completed, the new scanned image will appear in the current Document as a new Image Document Item. The ability to rename the scanned image tab is accomplished by right-clicking over the tab and selecting rename.

Scanning as a New Docutainer

Scanning as a New Docutainer

If you would like for your scanned document to have its own docutainer, you can use the scan button below the splitter bar to scan as a new docutainer.

Scanning Multi-Paged Documents

If you have a self-feed scanner, you will have the option to scan in multi-page documents. To use this, you can click the scan button just like with a single page document. When the scan is completed, you will have one tab per page.

Scanned Signatures

Scanned Signatures

You can also scan in signatures which can be included on document designs. It is recommended that you scan the signature to your desktop and use Provider Manager to import the signature.

To use this signature on document designs, use the data item found under Misc > Clinician > Signature. This will use the signature stored in Provider Manager.
