You can access your accuRx Desktop inbox by clicking on this icon on your toolbar:

This is the part of the accuRx Desktop toolbar where different types of responses come into.

3 different types of information come into the Inbox

  1. Any patient responses (including photos 📸) to specific text messages. These are replies to those text messages that you've ticked the "Allow patient to response once (with text or photo)" box on.
  2. Any Florey responses such as to the Asthma/COPD/COVID-19 questionnaires.
  3. Any failed delivery receipts for text messages that fail to deliver to the patient's phone.

What about patient requests submitted through accuRx online consultation consultation, Patient Triage? If your practice has got access to Patient Triage, you can find more information on how to manage these patient requests here.

All users will always be able to view any message that is returned to the practice

You have your "My Inbox" view within the Inbox. This is to help you locate your replies quickly and easily. However, all messages returned to the practice will be visible to everyone so there's never a chance that your replies will be missed if you are away! 😀 More on where to locate different types of messages below...

Each user can change their own notification settings

Each of the 3 types of responses above have a default settings for how users at the practice are notified when a new response comes in of that particular type. The notifications we are referring to here are the notifications which appear as a red circle on your initials on the accuRx Desktop toolbar.

Each user can alter their accuRx Desktop Inbox settings to change how they are notified about new replies to the 3 types of responses above. More on how notifications work here...
