Printing from Personal Devices

It is unlikely that a personal computing device (notebook, tablet or iPad) will be able to find or map to printers in clinical practice areas. There is a work-around if a report (e.g. After Visit Summary) needs to be printed or saved for printing:

  • Initiate a print command.
  • Look for the "Microsoft Print to PDF" printer name from the list of available printers. 
  • When prompted with a dialog seeking a location to save the pdf file, click on the drop-down list to the right of "Save in:" and select the storage device for your personal device, then seeking out the desired folder and giving the pdf file an appropriate name.
  • --> it is essential that this workflow only be performed with approved personal devices having encrypted storage; and that pdf files be deleted as soon as the purpose (e.g. billing data transfer) is complete.
