This guide provides an overview on configuring the Medical-Objects Download Client (Capricorn) and Genie Software to import electronic results. This process is based on the Microsoft Windows environment.

If you require any assistance with the installation or configuration, or if you have any questions, please contact the Medical-Objects Helpdesk on (07) 5456 6000.

If you have not Installed the Medical-Objects Download client, Please see the guide for Installing Capricorn on Windows.

Genie Auto import Pre-Configuration Check

Prior to installing the Medical-Objects Capricorn, the following must be checked and the installation performed accordingly to allow Genie to automatically import the results received via Medical-Objects.


  1. Log into Genie and click on File, and select Practice Preferences.

  2. Select the Practice whose configuration you want to check.


    Multiple clinics can be listed in the Practice Preference screen. Ensure you select the correct clinic.

  3. On the Practice Configuration window, Find the practice that you want to check the auto-import settings for in the clinic name column and double click the entry.

  4. In the Edit Practice Preferences window, click on the Clinical tab.
    Note the checkboxes named Allow Pathology Import on Server and Import Pathology Automatically on Client.



Only one option may be selected so genie can only automatically import from EITHER the Server or the workstation. It is strongly recommended that the Capricorn be installed, or setup to save results to, either the workstation or the server depending on which checkbox is currently selected in the clinical tab of the Practice Preferences. It is NOT recommended that the settings be changed inside Genie as this could affect other download clients which may installed and working on the sites computers. 

Example: As we can see in the screenshot below Genie is set to import results on the Server, If you are required to install the Medical-Objects Capricorn on a Genie client workstation then it must be set to download the results across the network to the Genie server to allow Genie to automatically import the downloaded results.

If Genie is set to import from the server and results are downloaded to a workstation, then a manual import must be run from the Genie client installed on the workstation where the results are downloaded and vise versa.
