Hexa Center



The Dossier functionality is used to create a medical dossier for clients.

1. Dossier definition

A dossier in Hexa Center is a fully customizable report linked to an individual client or multiple clients. Dossiers can be customized according to your organisational needs, by adding sections, notes and even files like pictures and videos. More information about programs can be found on the Programs page.

2. Dossier overview

To access the dossier overview simply click on the Dossiers button under the Healthcare section. Navigating to the dossier overview page shows you a list of all available dossiers. To view a users' dossier you can also navigate to the user overview, there that users' dossiers are listed by date and number. Each dossier, and other items, have a unique number assigned to them. If no dossiers exist for that user, the dossier section will not be visible.

You can only access the dossier overview if you have sufficient permissions to do so. More information about roles and permissions can be found on the Roles and Permissions page. We are still working on creating a per-page based overview of all relevant roles & permissions.

2.1 Items overview

Via the Items section, found on the right side of your screen, you can filter between showing only programs, notes, or files added to this dossier. By default this filter is set to the programs view. The Timeline shows all items added to this dossier.

3. Creating dossiers

Click on the + New button to start the dossier creation process. Unlike other elements, a dossier does not have a name. A dossier's name is automatically generated using the dossiers creation date and its number.

3.1 Adding clients to a dossier

Click on the empty Clients field to to add clients to the dossier. Added clients are added to the Clients field and can be easily removed by clicking on the small X icon next to that client's name. Once all clients are added, click on the + Create button to finalize the creation process. Don't worry, you can always add and remove clients later, as explained in section 4.1 "Adding and removing clients".

Just like when adding users in other parts of Hexa Center, you can easily filter for part of a users' name to speed up the adding process. For example, the name John Doe can be easily found by filtering for any part of John's name, like jo, john, Doe or hn Do.

After navigating to the dossier you want to edit you will be able to add dossier items via the timeline system. A detailed explanation on how to add dossier items can be found by reading section 5: Adding dossier items.

4.1 Adding and removing clients

Clients can easily be added later on in the dossier creation proces by selecting the client in the Add client field and clicking on the Add button. To remove a client click on the trashcan icon next to that clients name. A dossier needs to have one client added to it at all times.

5. Adding dossier items

Editing dossiers is different from editing other data within Hexa Center. Unlike, for example, a property, a dossier consists of a 3 different items; Programs, Notes and Files.

Items can be added by clicking on the + Add button found under the Timeline section. Once an item is added the current date will immediatally be displayed next to it. This proces creates a sequential timeline of events, which makes it easy to keep track of when and what changes were made in a dossier.

5.1 Adding programs

Information about how to create, view, edit and delete programs can be found on the: Programs page.

Add a program to a dossier by first clicking on the + Add button in the timeline section, then proceed by selecting the Program option from the list of available items. A dialog box will now appear, allowing you to choose a program from the dropdown menu. Search for a specific program by clicking on the empty field and typing in the program's name, or by simply clicking on the field to manually search for the program using the dropdown list. Click on the program's name from the dropdown menu to select it. The previously empty field will now contain the program's name.

Click on the + Add button to add the program to the dossier. Changes made to a program will not be synced to dossiers where that program has already been added. Think of adding a program to a dossier like copying over the contents of that program to the dossier.

5.1.1 Adding steps to the program

Steps in which the Addition mode is set to Manually are not automatically added to any program you add to a dossier. Manually add a step to the program by first navigating to the correct program via the Dossier timeline section.

Then proceed by clicking on the + Add button, continue by clicking on the empty field to select a step from the dropdown.

The same step can be added to a dossier multiple times. Read more about steps and programs on the Programs page.

5.2 Adding notes

Open the timeline section and create a Note using the Note menu option in the dropdown. This action opens a dialog box, allowing you to specify a name for your note. Currently there are no restrictions relating to the length of a note's title, you can use special characters, cyrillic or other writing methods, and even emojis!

After entering a name for your note note and clicking on the + Add button, the note will be added and it will subsequently appear in the timeline.

The Note item allows you to input text via the Rich text editor. Editing text using a Rich Text Editor can be compared to editing text via applications like Microsoft Word or Wordpad. It works with the same ribbon system as those aforementioned applications, but simplified to purely focus on text editing.

5.3 Uploading files

By clicking on the + Add button under the timeline section and clicking on File option, you are presented with your operating system's file explorer. From there you will able to select a file.

Hexa Center allows users to upload a multitude of different file types, like image files, audio files, video files, PDFs, Excel and other Office files like Word

Select a file using your system's file explorer, this process will vary depending on the operating system used, if you are unable to select a file please contact your Hexa Center representative. Hexa Center will now process your file, uploading it to our servers. Just like when adding notes or dossiers, the file is registered in the timeline overview.

5.3.1 Viewing, downloading and deleting files

To view, download or delete a file, select it from the timeline overview by clicking on the button containing the file's name.

Dossier select file from timeline

Clicking on View opens the file in a new tab. Depending on your browser's capabilities and the type of uploaded file, your browser should allow you to listen to audio files, play video files and view image files.

Clicking on Download saves the selected file using your browsers built-in download function to your computer. Select the file from either the top right or bottom left to open it, again depending on the browser used.

Clicking on Delete permanently deletes the selected file from the dossier and timeline overview.

6. Deleting dossiers

To delete a dossier first navigate to the dossier you would like to delete. On the dossier editing page you can delete a dossier via the Delete button. You will be prompted to confirm the deletion. Click on Yes to delete the dossier. Clicking on No, or anywhere outside of the pop-up will cancel the deletion process. Deleting a dossier is permanent and cannot be undone.

7. Editing programs which have already been added to dossiers

Changes made to programs are not carried over to programs already added to the dossier timeline. For example, changes made to the title of a program will not carry over to the version of the program already added to the dossier.

Adding a program to a dossier is more akin to copying over that program, rather than linking it to the already existing dossier. Keep this in mind when adding a program to a dossier, its best to finish editing a program before adding it to dossiers.

8. Filling out questionnaires

There are two ways a questionnaire can be filled in. By sending it out to clients via email, to have clients fill out the questionnaire via the client portal page, or by a user manually inputting the answers of the clients via the Dossier page.

More information about the client portal page can be found on the Client portal page.

8.1. Via the Dossier page

Questionnaires can also be filled in by (internal) users working in Hexa Center. This is especially useful for in-person interviews, a client can answers questions given by the user while those answers are written down by the user during the interview.

Simply select the right program, step and client and start filling in the answers. Mark the step as completed via the Mark as complete button.

9. Viewing given answers & completion status

Answers given by clients are automatically send to the dossier's step page and can be viewed on a per-client basis. The same goes for answers entered manually by users.

The completion status of a program can be viewed via the dossiers' page. The completion status of an individual step can be found via the dossier's program page. A checkmark next to the step's name indicates the step is marked as completed.
