System Requirements and Setup
For information about system requirements, role setup, provider setup, and telemedicine settings, see the PM AdvancedTelemedicine help file.
Start a Scheduled Telemedicine Appointment
You can start a scheduled telemedicine appointment three ways:

Tap the Patient icon.
View a list of all telemedicine appointments for the day in the Telemedicine section of the Patients screen.
From this screen, you can start or reconnect to a call, end a call in progress, and apply charges to the visit.
The Start Call, Patient, and Telemedicine icons turn red when a patient has joined a call and is waiting for the provider to arrive.
Note: You can tap the date to select to view past or future telemedicine appointments for a specified date.
We have updated appointment cards on the patient facesheet. When you tap More on an appointment card to view a list of future and past appointments, you can now tap on a a future appointment to open the appointment card where you can see appointment details and edit the appointment.
We have also updated all chart items on the patient facesheet to display the patient information bar for an easier and more consistent workflow.
Documents and Images
You can now upload document and image files to the patient’s chart from your iCloud® Drive.
We have updated the prescription confirmation workflow, so you can now sign, send, and print prescriptions on the Confirm screen.
We have also added the Supervising Provider field on the Medication screen, so you can select a supervising provider on a prescription just as you can in EHR and PM ePrescribing.
We have added the following new filters and sorting features to Messages:
- Messages sent To All (multiple recipients) or just To Me.
- Deleted Only messages.
- Multi-select specific subjects or All subjects.
- Sort messages in ascending or descending order by Date or Subject.
You can now view a patient’s message history from the patient’s facesheet. Tap the Message History icon to display all internal and patient portal messages associated with the patient for the selected time frame.
Tap the filter icon to view messages from the Last 30 Days, Last 60 Days, Last 90 Days, Last 6 Months, Last Year, or All.
The default time frame is Last 30 Days.
Note: A badge displays next to the Message History icon to indicate how many messages are associated with the patient for the selected time frame.
Link Chart Items
To match EHR functionality, you can now link the following saved chart items to patient notes, prescriptions, lab orders, and documents and images in the mobile and iPhone app:
- Charge Slips
- Lab Orders
- Notes (iPad® only)
- Documents & Images
View linked chart items in EHR.
We have enhanced the Touch ID login feature to streamline workflow. Now you can choose to have the device Remember your Touch ID, or Forget it when you tap Logout. This gives you more control over the security of your device.
