Manipulating PDF Files
I am a physician and am building a record system on FM Pro. So far so good. Have a workflow where we get forms sent to us as PDF files (forms from pharmacies, insurance companies, etc) which need me to fill in information and/or add a signature, then fax back to who sent it. I can export the PDF to an external program (Preview on my Mac or Acrobat) where I can do that kind of stuff and then import again. But I would really like to be able to annotate/sign/manipulate the PDF within FM if at all possible. I would also like to have PDF's within the patient records that they can sign and not have to re-import them (like permission to treat, patient contracts, waivers, etc.)
It would be a whole lot easier to be able to intract with the content of the container fields either on the computer or a tablet. I do have an iPad, so I could do this on FM Go.
So what's the easiest way to do this? Do I have to drop money on this to get a plug-in? Will that be significantly easier than what I am now doing? If so, which plug-in is best?
This cannot be done in FIleMaker at this time unless there is a plug in out there that offers this added feature. And since FM Go does not support the use of plug ins, a plug in will not be an option for your iPad.
