Interested Parties and Letter Writer Widget
This is the first enhancement in the series of enhancements targeting outbound correspondence for Specialists. Within the Patient Demographics, there is now a table in the Referral tab called Interested Parties . This feature enables you to keep track of external doctors who want to receive correspondence regarding the patient.
When a new Referral is created, an Interested Party is automatically created. These interested parties are defined as service providers and health professionals with an interest in receiving correspondence regarding the patient. An interested party can be added using the (+) element.
There should only be one usual GP selected and you are able to set the usual GP by ticking the check box (as represented by 3 below). Once the Interested Party is selected click on Save and either select from the menu options Save or Save and New.
The usual GP will default to the top of the Interested Party list.
When a GP appears both on Referral Table and the Interested Parties table, they are labelled as a referrer.
When creating a letter to send to a GP or Specialist (the letter creation Knowledge base article can be found here)
the (+) icon can be hit next to the two fields. This will open the Interested Parties and Referrer widget. This displays a list of Providers that appear on the Interested Parties table.
Selecting a provider from the list will populate the To field. Now you are ready to compose your letter and send it to the relevant Interested Parties.
You've completed another MediRecords Tutorial. You should now be able to use the Interested Parties feature and select contacts from the letter writer. If this is not what you're looking for, head back to our knowledge base and search for another article.
