The practice would find it extremely useful if documents saved in the comms section of the R4 patient system, could directly be attached to emails and a record of same be recorded on the patients records.
Examples of attachments would include treatment plans, invoices and referrals to other professionals.
This is a system update that would greatly assist in maintaining patient records contemporaneously.
Unfortunately this isn't available currently in the R4 system as you are aware and the images would have to be saved to the PC then e-mailed outside of R4.
