At the top of the Images Module are four buttons for scanning forms, letters, documents, photos, and radiographs into a patient's record.
To set default options for scanning, see Imaging Quality. In the instructions below, we assume that the options Show Select Scanner Window and Show Scanner Options Window are selected.
Scan Document: Use the flatbed scanner of your attached device to scan a single page document. File will be saved as a JPG.
Scan Multi-Page Document: Use the automatic document feeder (ADF) of your attached device to scan multiple pages. Adobe Reader must be installed. File will be saved as a PDF.
Scan Radiograph: Select when you are scanning a radiograph. The pixel windowing settings set in Image Setup will be used as the default.
Scan Photo: Scan a photo.
Some proprietary Scanner Options windows let you pick Grayscale and 150 dpi from the initial Scanner Options window. Automatic document feeder (ADF) settings for Multi-Page Scanning also appear here.
