  2. Leave the ACK Management path as default, Which should be:

    No Format
  3. Select Server Parameters from the left panel.

  4. Under Message Output Directory (main), set the results import path to the drive the results are stored on.

    For Example: 

    No Format
    Main Directory -  X:\Labs\MO

    By Default, Everything will be imported under the Medical-Objects contact explained later in this guide.
    However, If the site requires the files to show up as the Pathology/Radiology sender (i.e QHPS/SXR) you will need to set Message Source Exceptions  and divert those specific files to another path.

    No Format
    Pathology -  X:\Labs\MO\QHPS 
    Radiology -  X:\Labs\MO\SXR


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

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

  7. A new window will appear called Select Identifier.

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

  9. Select Southernex Imaging from the display panel.
  10. The following Message Source Exception window will appear.

  11. Click OK to leave all the details blank.

  12. Repeat this step for each of the Contacts that are to be set up in VIP (e.g. In this case QHPS (Nata 2639) and Southernex Imaging).

The configuration is complete. Click Apply and OK. 

Setup VIP to Import


  1. From the top Menu, choose Patient, and then Search.

  2. Perform a search for your company, such as 'medical' to see if a contact currently exists for Medical-Objects.

  3. To create the contact, tick the 'New Organisation' box and choose search.

  4. Click 'New' button in bottom left hand corner of screen that appears.

  5. Put company name e.g 'Medical Objects' in the name section and choose role. e.g 'Laboratory'. Put short name - e.g 'MO' in the code box.

  6. Click the 'Investigations Provider Details' tab. For 'Receiving Directory' put in the path you set the Capricorn to output the files to. If you used  Message Source Exceptions to direct certain Pathology/Radiology companies to a different folder, you will have to put this folder name for that contact. Be sure to choose the correct file type from Results Format..

  7. Click OK. VIP should now pickup the files.
