Gentu has a powerful template system which allows you to create and edit custom letter templates to automate your correspondence with both patients and practitioners
You can create or edit letter templates through the Letter Template settings menu, which is located in Settings > Letter Templates.
Creating a New Letter Template
To create a new letter template, click on the + to the right of the Letter Templates heading.
This will open the Letter Template window. Before you begin, please enter a name for your template in the field directly above the document.
You can now edit and arrange elements of the letter to suit your needs. Please see our Letter Writing Tools and Functions article for more details of all the tools available to you.
References are particularly useful when developing a template. References allows you to automatically insert information about the patient, addressee, or procedure into the letter. It can also be used to insert the current date, any CC'd doctors, and the sender's name into the letter. When you use this tool in a Letter Template, it will create a field marker which inserts the relevant details of any patient when you create a letter for them.
To use the Reference Tool to insert a reference into the letter, insert your cursor into the location you require the reference to appear, then click on the tool and select the reference field from the drop down menu.
References will appear in the document as a field description highlighted with a teal background. You can drag these fields around the document if you have accidentally inserted them in the wrong location.
You are also able to click on date fields to specify how you would like Gentu to format the date:
Once you have configured your template to meet your requirements, scroll to the bottom of the screen and click Save.
Editing Existing Templates
If an existing template doesn't meet your requirements and you wish to add or change an element of a template, you are able to edit existing templates. Select the template you wish to change from the list of Letter Templates, and click Edit at the top right of the screen where the letter template is displayed.
Make the required changes to your template as you would when creating a new template, then scroll to the bottom of this page and click Save.
