How do I add a picture to the patient's chart? (KB)

November 21st, 2017

In order to add a picture to a patient’s chart (i.e., a photo of the patient, that shows up when the chart is opened and on the printed routing slip):

  • Access the main screen in Sammy and click on Utilities
  • Import Pictures 
  • Check the box for “Facial Pictures”
  • Locate the picture in your system
  • Search for a patient to associate the picture with
  • Import the picture

We suggest that you create a folder on your desktop or on a shared network folder if applicable that the pictures are saved to, which will then speed up the search process by having all items in a central location. 

You can also use this function to import other pictures into patient’s charts as well if you have multiple pictures to add at one time.
