In an effort to move toward a paperless system, our office scans insurance cards into PracticeWorks, Attachments. Is there a way to share attachments between patients so that we do not have to scan the card for each covered family member?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to share attachments between patients. They are assigned to the patient's internal system ID and cannot be set to be used by more then one ID.
Hi I just saw your question regarding sharing attachments for same family. Are you scanning directly through PW or creating a PDF with the PDF to the desktop and then attaching to the individual(s)?
If it is something you are going to share among family members, it might be easier to scan the file into your scanning software (not into Attachments), and then upload the file into each patient's attachments. You still have to go to each family member, but at least you don't have to wait for the card to scan into each patient's chart.
