Designer: How To – Configure Document Types

Document Types are developed to help categorize and name documents that are uploaded into the patient’s chart. Configuring document types helps reduce the amount of time to search for uploaded documents in the Care portal.

Follow these steps to create your Document Types:

  1. In the Designer portal “Create Draft” 
  2. On the left side menu bar you will navigate to Document Types under Custom Data 
  3. Select “+ New”
  4. Enter a Title: This is the Title name that will appear in Care
  5. Name: This will automatically populate when you enter Title, but can be changed manually if desired.
  6. Data Field: This is where you can add additional fields. Examples include: Text area for notes or List for sub categorizations
  7. Save Changes
  8. On the left sidemenu bar you will navigate to Security Policies under Access Control. In order to view the new Document Type you will need to grant Document permissions in the appropriate Security Policies.
  9. Select Change Summary and Publish.
