Add to Chart Overview
Changes are made to the clinical chart by searching
based on item keywords, selecting one or more items
from the results list, and entering information specific
to the new items.
The following tasks are performed by adding items to
the clinical chart.
- Prescription -
To write a prescription, add a medicine to the clinical chart.
- Document -
To document patient allergies, procedures, surguries, etc.,
add a medical item to the clinical chart.
- Referral -
To perform a referral, add a health care institution to the
clinical chart. For security reasons doctors cannot view
a chart unless they belong to a health care institution
connected to the chart.
For a doctor to obtain access they must request that their
health care institution be added to the chart.
This is similar to current practice, doctors call health care
institutions and request that patient's charts be faxed or mailed.
Data is pushed, not pulled.
- Fax setup -
To allow faxing of prescriptions, add the patient's pharmacies
to the clinical chart.
In the following examples "sinus" is used rather
than searching for a specific medicine.
This finds the top items related to sinus.
Each time an item is added to a clinical chart,
its rank is incremented.
The results list sorts by descending rank.
This approach moves the favored items to the top of
the results list.
Some clients allow selection of more than one
item from the search list.
More than one sinus medicine can be added to
the clinical chart without having to perform
a search for each medicine, saving time.
