DMS Letter Processor
The DMS Letter Processor provides the following functions for creating
and printing letters and documents:
The letters or documents can be used in conjunction with a list and data-filled,
which pulls information from the patient's account such as name, address,
and account balance. You can generate mass mailings using data filled

Letters are created using Plain Text or the Rich Text Editor
(RTE). Plain Text is a basic text editor. You can use data-fill
fields and set up text to print in columns. RTE is a Rich Text
Editor for enhanced letter processing. You can insert elements (data-fill
fields), insert tables to align text, insert images, use barcodes, and
Prior to using this function you need to know if your system is set up
to create letters with Plain Text or with the Rich Text Editor
(RTE). All new-client systems are automatically set up with the Rich
Text Editor. You can check the format that your system is set up with
in the DMS Integration
under System, Database Maintenance Menu.
- If the integration is set to Plain Text and you switch from
Plain Text to Rich Text, the first time you access any
existing Plain Text DMS document, it will automatically be converted
to Rich Text. After a document has been converted, all future editing
for the document can only be performed using the RTE.
- If you have existing Plain Text documents and switch to RTE, you
may have to reformat the Plain Text documents.
- You cannot switch back and forth between Plain Text and Rich Text
because the formatting and integrity of your documents will be compromised.

Letters are created and edited using the Plain Text Editor within
the Maintain Letters function.
Even if your system is set to use RTE documents, when you create a
new letter or select an existing electronic letter to edit, the Plain
Text Editor will automatically launch.
