We update OpNote with new features and improvements on a monthly basis. One of the new features we recently published is "Batch Printing," which we detailed here last week. Less than a week later we've already updated this feature so that personnel can do Batch Printing and now they can also "Batch Download" all of the day's reports.
Please Note: if you have a filter on for that day (by surgeon), then you will only download/print that surgeon's reports for that day. To read about both, scroll down; to jump directly to Batch Downloading, click here.
Batch Printing allows appropriate personnel to easily print out all of the operative reports created that day with one button. Your reports remain in electronic format in our system and can be integrated with the EHR/database that you use. BUT, for those that need to file or fax hard copies, this allows for one quick and easy step to generate paper versions of reports created with OpNote.
To use this feature:
One large PDF document with all of the days' reports is generated. Print out that PDF document (containing multiple reports) and you can now begin faxing/filing as need be for all of the reports.
Again, OpNote creates electronic reports that we can send back into your EMR via HL7 or other messages. But, for those facilities that need to electronically upload the reports in a different style, we present "Batch Downloading."
Batch Downloading saves all of the days' reports into a zipped folder on your computer (or where ever you choose). Unzip the folder (by double-clicking or using WinZip, depending on your computer), and then you can move the reports around as you see fit. NOTE: The files for the reports are titled SurgeonLastName_OrderofCompletion. So if you download 5 of Dr. Smith's reports, you have Smith_1, Smith_2, etc.
To use this feature:
A zipped folder will be saved with all of the days' reports where ever you choose. Unzip the folder (containing multiple reports in individual files) and you can now begin saving the reports in your records as need be.
