The aim of this article is to offer new users a comprehensive introduction to the various functions, features, and configuration tools accessible through the User Profile Menu. By following the instructions in this tutorial, you can discover how to create status updates, conveniently access your user settings, and customize your personal preferences using the profile configuration tools.
To open the User Profile Menu, navigate to the User Icon, which is the ninth (last) tab on the MediRecords application ribbon.
Click the User Icon to reveal the User Profile Menu.The User Profile Menu is divided into four sections; My Status, My Settings, Practice and Help & Support / Log Out. Each of these sections will be covered individually in this tutorial.
By using the "My Status" feature, you can promptly publish messages to both the Appointments page and the Waiting Room. This allows you to keep your staff informed about the current consultation's progress or whether you intend to take a break after the consultation is complete. When you make a Status Update, it won't appear on the Notice Board. Such updates usually pertain to your progress with patient appointments, and by keeping your status current, you can inform the practice staff about any delays or breaks you intend to take. This up-to-date information enables the staff to more accurately estimate the waiting time for patients in the waiting room.
To Post a Status Update:
- Click the Textbox and type in a status update.
- Click Post.
Once a status update has been posted, it will be visible on the Appointments page and the Waiting Room.
On the Appointments page, they will be a small Chat Icon next to the name of a clinician who has posted a status update. Hover your mouse cursor over the chat icon to reveal the status update.
To Remove a Status Update, click Clear.
In the Waiting Room, the status update will be visible next to the name of a doctor, provided they currently have a patient in their consulting room.
