Edit Existing Document

Updated 1 year ago by Steven Garand

Only LMN files, word files, and spread sheets can be directly edited in the browser. All other documents must be downloaded, edited locally in an appropriate separate application, then uploaded to replace the existing document.
Choose the 'LMN' option in the 'EDIT/New File' drop down to edit an existing LMN. This will automatically look in the LMN sub folder when the File and Open menu items are clicked.
Make sure to click on File then Save after editing the document.

Options

  1. Show For: Specifies the patient folder containing all orders for the related patient or only the open order subfolder for the patient
    1. Patient: Use this option when working with documents for the patient, regardless of a particular order - Can access documents in the patient folder as well as in all order sub folders folders for the patient
    2. Order: Use this option when working with documents specific to the open order, for example a recommended letter of medical necessity (LMN) - Can only access documents for the current open order
