Upon being clicked, a window will appear. This will give you the choice to either mark the result as reviewed, or to remind you of the result in the selected amount of time.
Once you choose to mark the result as reviewed, a green tick will appear in the Reviewed column, letting you know that this result has been seen.

Understanding the Delivery Report

The report is comprised of a number of fields. You may need to scroll to the right to see all fields depending on your screen resolution...



Report Title e.g. X-ray Chest

Copy For 

The name and provider number of the recipient

PatientPatient name
 DateDate the report was sent
To PracticePractice report was sent to
Message Source

Delivered

If populated, this shows the day and time that the report was downloaded by the recipient

Delivery TypeShows the medical-Objects software type in use at the recipient site. They will be one of 3 types 
                           Capricorn – PC Download Client
                           CapricornCM – Mac Download Client
                           EquatorDxTray – Medical-Objects clinical software
Reviewed Only relevant when delivery type is EquatorDXTray
StatusIdentifies if result was sent as a correction, interim result, or final result. Should show as Final in most cases.
 Ack Shows if the message has gone through successfully or not.

Reports that have been delivered

Once a report has been sent you will either get an entry under the Delivered column, and one under the Ack column. Delivered If populated, this shows the day and time that the report was downloaded by the recipient. Ack shows the status of the report, and shows if it has been delivered or not.

For this example, we will look at a number of files that have been delivered, and follow up on whether they have been imported at the recipient end.

In the previous picture there are 3 reports, all of which have a delivered date and time in the column. Let’s look at the other fields to the right to see their status  & . There are 2 reports have not gone through due to a error  or Acks is blank, it means the report hasn't been consumed. No date in the delivered column means site is offline(blank). 




The green tick indicates that there is an Application Acknowledgement. The Application Acknowledgement is generated by the receivers practice software after it imports the report. This is generally a good indication that the report has been both delivered and imported.

The yellow tick indicates that the report has been received and then consumed or removed from the location it was downloaded to. Generally this means the receiver's software doesn't generate an application acknowlegement so the File Consumed ACK can be used to assume the report has been imported.

The cross indicates that there was an error at the receivers end. A report that returns with an error will re-try periodically. If the report does not eventually go through it's suggested that you give Medical-Objects Helpdesk a call.
A blank Ack indicates that the receiving sites Capricorn software is currently offline

You will see most reports have a ‘Capricorn’ entry in Delivery Type column. This details that the download client (Capricorn) saved the report to a directory at the receiving end. If the report has not been delivered, there will be NO application ack entries.

As we know all top 3 reports above have been delivered, we now look to see if they have been imported by the recipient’s practice software.

The only exception to above will be if you see the Delivery Type is displaying EquatorDxTray. This means they are using software similar to the Medical-Objects explorer as their clinical package. If you see EquatorDxTray as the delivery type, you should instead look under the Delivered column for a date and time. 

Printing Results


When viewing a result, it can be printed via the Print button located in the central bar next to Show Patient Details.

 

Pressing this button will immediately bring up a window with the result in a print friendly format and your internet browser’s printer settings.

 

From here you can change or modify your printer settings if needed. When you are ready, press the print button to print the report.
