NextGen Office Order Result Patient Communication and Result Suppression

When orders are resulted and reviewed, the results are available to patients in their YourHealthFile® Patient Portal account. The act of reviewing the order result automatically sends an email to the patient informing them that an order result is available. You can use the Patient Message feature to add a note to the order or suppress the results.

An example automated email after marking the order result reviewed is below.
