About Document Designer
Document Designer (DD) can be used to design and edit documents which can be printed or faxed (when a user has the SOAPware Faxing Module) from SOAPware, i.e. referral letter, reports, etc. Documents can be created using free text or free text combined with commands and macros that automatically transfer data from a patient chart, e.g. patients name, demographics, vital signs, EKG/ECG reports, etc.
Importance of Demographics, Provider Manager, and Contacts
The Demographics, Provider Manager, and Contacts section of the patient chart needs to be filled out completely in order for information from these areas to be pulled onto a final document design.
Using Document Designer
To access Document Designer, Click Tools in the menu bar, and then Click the Document Designer menu item.
Click File, and then Click the Available Designs menu item. The available document designs will be displayed.
To view a particular design, Click a document design in the list (i.e. select/highlight), and Click the OK button. For example, Rx/Fax - Alone* is one of items in the list of document designs.
Examples of a Document Design
Here is an example of a prescription to be printed.
The Design View
This is an example of a prescription document design viewed within Document Designer. Free-text has been typed to customize the look of the design, and several command phrases (items that have #$ $#) are included. These pull information from either the patient's chart or from other areas in SOAPware to the document design.
