Saving the Event Chronology to a Disc

Version 14.19
  1. Click the Medical Records button from the Clinical tab.
  2. To print all Medical Records entries, click the Print button. Ensure that Preview is selected as the Output preference. A print preview of the Medical Records window is displayed. 

  1. In the Print window, select the Print to File checkbox. 
  2. Select Adobe Acrobat Document from the Type drop-down menu. This saves the document as a .pdf file. 
  3. Click the button at the end of the Where line to choose where your document will be saved.
  4. Click the OK button. A PDF Exporter Setup window is displayed, where you can choose to preview the document. 
  5. Click the OK button again to generate the .pdf report. 
  6. Insert a blank CD-R disc or zip drive, then copy the .pdf file onto the disc or drive. You can then give the patient a digital copy of their medical records.
Note: If the Print to File checkbox is not available you can download and install a PDF printer. Two printers that have been tested are Bullzip and CutePDF. This allows you to create a pdf of the chart and save to your computer much like the print to file option. Once you have created the pdf, it can be copied to a disc, thumb drive, etc.

Note: For the best way to encrypt files saved to a disc, consult your IT professional.
