The values updated in the Administration->Globals->Documents will get reflected in the document section.
For example, we enable the checkbox “Expand All Document Categories”

Now you can select a particular patient and click on documents. you can able to view all values under the categories i.e Expand option is handled.

Some explanation for the fileds are given below

  1. Patient ID Category Name

For Example, the default value is “Patient ID card”. Now the files under Patient ID Card will be displayed under ID Card/Photos in patient summary

  1. Patient Photo Category Name

For Example, the default value is “Patient Photograph”. The image under patient photograph will be displayed in patient summary

  1. Change the category name under the option Administration -> Practice -> Documents.
    Click on Edit Categories and change the category name. For example Patient ID.
  2. Now you can modify the category name as “Patient ID” in Adminstration-> Globals-> Documents
