We are currently updating the OP Help Center content for the release of OP 20. OP 20 (official version 20.0.x) is the certified, 2015 Edition, version of the Office Practicum software. This is displayed in your software (Help tab > About) and in the Help Center tab labeled Version 20.0. We appreciate your patience as we continue to update all of our content.

OP Patient Portal (InteliChart) Message Workflow

The content in this article is relevant to the OP Patient Portal, powered by InteliChart.

We are aware Secure Messaging between OP 20 and the InteliChart Patient Portal is not functioning as expected. This is a critical issue and we are working hard to resolve it. While we continue to work on this functionality, you can follow the instructions below as an alternative workflow to exchange Secure Messages with patients directly from the InteliChart Patient Portal. 

Note: Messages sent by your practice from the Intelichart Practice Portal will not be pulled into OP 20 and therefore will not be a part of the patient’s permanent medical record within the EHR. A suggested best practice would be to copy/paste any message you send from the Intelichart Practice Portal into OP 20.

Log into the Practice Portal

  1. Navigate to your Practice Portal URL.
  2. Enter your Administrator login/password to log in to the Practice Portal.
  3. Select a Practice from the drop-down menu located at the top of the window (optional, only required to switch to a different practice).
