If you often send a specific message and/or set of forms to patients or you are using Patient Reminders, you may find Patient Messages templates to be very useful.
- To edit your templates, log in to the Ocean Portal. If you aren't already in the Patients view, click the "Menu" button in the top left corner and select "Patients". Select a test patient and click "Email Patient...".
- The default template will appear and you can edit it to your liking by making changes to the subject, email body, secure message, and eForms to send to the patient.
Please Note: Attachments cannot be saved to patient messaging templates.
- When you're done, you can use the Templates menu at the top right corner to either save this template as your default template ("Save as Default") or a new template ("Save Template").
- Now, if you want to use a template you've previously saved, simply choose from the dropdown list of previously saved templates located in the Templates menu at the top right. This will update the subject line, body, secure message, completion notification, and even the forms that you included when you originally saved the template.
- If you want to edit a template that you've previously saved, select it from the Templates menu, make your changes, and then click the "Update Template" button at the bottom of the window.
- If you want to delete a template, select it from the Templates menu, and then go back into the Templates menu and select "Delete Template...".
