In this article, we will explore the patient’s page and learn what is the difference between cases and patients, how you can add patients, and what other features you can use here.
On the left menu, you can find the patient’s page: Menu, Patients.
What is a patient?
A patient represents one study with personal information such as name, social security number, date of birth. Plus, details about the study such as investigation type, study date, and the institution which run the investigation.
Every patient is an individual study. Therefore, in your patient’s page, you have rapid access to every person that has a study in the Medicai platform, and either was uploaded by you or by your fellow doctors, an archive of imaging investigations.
You can notice the patient’s name several times when it’s the case. That is because that person has more investigations. For example, he can have two CTs and one MRI. That is because all investigations are seen as individual investigations. So, at the moment, no matter if the investigations belong to the same person, they will be displayed separately.
How can I add a patient or a study?
Just click on the button “Upload investigations to the archive”. You can add investigations from your computer or other external devices, such as CDs.
When the upload is finished, you can choose to create a case or just save it on the Patients page.
Turn a patient into a case
You can turn a patient into a case if you want to keep it under observation for a longer period of time or you need to ask other doctor’s opinions about medical decisions. All you have to do is to select a study or more and click on the “Create case” button from the top of the table, or from the dropdown button.
What else can I do on the Patients page?
You can view the study in our DICOM viewer.
You can download the study from the dropdown button clicking on Download DICOM. And delete the study from the same listing.
Not last, search. In time, you will end up with pages of patients. A feature that allows you to search by name and social security number will help you find the patient you are looking for in no time.
