Side (info) Panel

The icon in the upper-right corner of your screen toggles the side panel. When it is opened,  there is a square around the icon: 

Studies Screen

When the side panel is opened on the Studies screen but nothing is selected, the side panel will display a time-stamped history log of your clinic's activity. This includes when studies were viewed, shared, and when a note or annotation is created.

  • Account Activity tab: Displays a history log that includes all members of your clinic
  • My Activity tab: Displays a history log of only your actions

Once a study is selected, the information in the side panel will display information specific to that study. You will know which study is selected because it will be blue on your Studies screen.

To select a study, click (or touch, if using a tablet) anywhere on the examination:

Shares Tab

The Shares tab displays a log of when and where the study was previously shared:

If the study was shared with a patient, it will be logged under Patient Links. It will also let you know if the images were viewed (by providing the number of page views).

If the patient accidentally deletes the images or needs them to be sent again, you can resend them by selecting the drop-down arrow. This method will send the same link to the same contact information.

If the link expired or you need to send the images using different contact information, share the images with the patient again using the Send to Patient feature.

If the study was sent to a colleague/another doctor, it will be logged under Consults. It will also let you know when your colleague viewed the study; if they have yet to view the study,  it will say, Unread.
