Configuring Capricorn Software 

Accessing the Capricorn Configuration Window
 

Note:

In some cases, the Capricorn may be configured as a service. See this guide for instructions on how to launch the Capricorn if it is set up as a service. 


  1. To launch the HL7 Tray application, Go to Start Menu, All Programs, Medical-Objects and select the Medical-Objects Capricorn. Alternatively, You can go to C:\MO\Capricorn and run the Capricorn.exe.
     
  2. The following icon will appear in the tray. Double click on it to bring up the log window.



  3. When the log window is displayed, Click on the Configuration icon highlighted below, or select Utility and select Configuration.

     

Integration Options

  1. From the left hand panel, Select Integration Options.
     

  2. Set the Folder for ACKS to the folder Practix will be outputting them to - Typically C:\msp\resultsimport\ACKs. The same import path will need to be added to a contact in Practix, outlined later in this guide.
     



  3. Make sure at the bottom of the panel that under Incoming Modifier, The Practix HL7 Modifier is set as shown below.
     



Report Scanning 

  1. In the left hand panel, Select Report Scanning.

  3. Once you have typed in the path, a message window will pop up and ask if you want to create the path.
     



  4. Select OK to create the path.

 

Message Source Exceptions

Note:

The Message Source Exceptions exclude the sending facilities that have a realting contact within Practix. These can be set up in the Practix configuration steps later in this guide. Otherwise all the sending facilities will be identified as being sent from Medical-Objects and not their own identity. For this example we will use Southernex Imaging.

 

  1. Select Message Src Exceptions from the left hand panel of the Capricorn configuration window.
     



  2. Click Add as shown above, and select Lookup Sending Facility HD. Do not use any other selection.

  4. Enter Southern and press Enter or click the Lightning Bolt to search.
     

  5. Select Southernex Imaging from the display panel.
     

  6. The following Message Source Exception window will appear.
     



  7. Click OK to leave all the details blank.
     

  8. Repeat this step for each of the Pathology and Radiology sites that send to the Practice.(e.g. In this case QHPS (Nata 2639) and Southernex Imaging). 

Server Parameters

  1. In the left hand side panel, select Server Parameters.
     
  2. In Message Output Directory (main) Enter the path for the Download client to drop off results to. Typically, this is C:\msp\resultimport.
