Hi everyone – As of 11/17/17, patients are able to attach files and hyperlinks to messages that they send to their provider from within the patient portal. When received in the EHR, these files and hyperlinks can be saved as documents to attach to the patient chart.
For more information on handling patient message attachments, please see our Knowledge Base article here:Philippe commented
Yes, if they can send jpegs and pdf's that would be great.
I do not think they need to categorize it, it might be too much work for them. And, if it is not categorized properly you still would have to change it.
