Using Exam Screen

The Exam Screen in Butterfly Cloud allows you to edit and review exams once they are uploaded to Butterfly Cloud. Users can use this page to add tags, documentation, and quality assurance review scores.

  • Add Author - Users can click this button to add study primary authors, secondary authors, and scribes to a draft exam.

  • Archive - Users can use this button to move the exam to a different archive when it's in draft status. Icons will indicate whether or not the archive is configured to forward the exam images to a PACS system textual results to an EHR.
  • Image Reel - Along the left panel of the exam screen users can scroll through all images and cine clips in the exam.

    • Users can select the “delete” button to delete a single image or cine clip.
  • Add Worksheet-  Users can select the “Add Worksheet” button to choose from available documentation templates and add them to an exam. The system will give users the option to utilize a prefilled template when configured by administrators. When a user finalizes an exam in an archive that is configured to send textual results to the EHR, everything in the worksheet section will be included in the HL7 result sent to the EHR.
  • Notes - Users can select the “Notes” section to view or edit notes. When a user finalizes an exam in an archive that is configured to send textual results to the EHR, everything in the notes section will be included in the HL7 result sent to the EHR.
  • Progress Bar - users can see the progress of their exam and how close it is to being completed by hovering over the progress bar in the bottom right hand corner. Each required field on the exam is equal to one progress point. When every field is complete except for the final signature, the progress bar will read “ready to sign.”
  • Sign Button - Users will be able to add their signature to an exam by selecting the “sign” button. For users that do not have final signature permissions (like residents), upon adding their signature they will be prompted to request attestation or final signature from an attending. When a credentialed user reviews the exam they will be given the option to “Sign Final".
