Viewing the Details of Text-Based Clinical Notes
To review the details of a text-based clinical note:
1. From the Clinical Notes Summary screen, tap a note to select it.
The Details screen opens and displays the text for that note. The top of the screen contains a heading with fields for Note Type, Date, and Status. The fields that are available depend on your source system. If your organization has implemented the Health Information Exchange feature and it is enabled in your user profile, you will also see a field for Source (the hospital or practice from which the clinical note information was derived).
2. The body of the note is listed below the heading; scroll up and down the page to view the full text of the clinical note.
For a clinical note that has a table format, preserving the column formatting is important so that the columns of data line up correctly. Fixed-width font is automatically selected when a clinical note has tables of data. If the report is just text, a variable-width font is used. Although in most cases you do not need to switch between the two, you can switch if necessary.
From the Details screen you can:
Move to the Details screen for the next clinical note in the patient’s Summary list. Swipe right to left.
Move to the Details screen for the previous clinical note in the patient’s Summary list. Swipe left to right.
NOTE: If a clinical note is displayed in fixed-width font, then when you swipe right or left, you go only to the left or right edge of the note. Tap Font to switch to variable-width font, and then you can swipe to the next or previous note.
Go back to the Clinical Notes Summary. Tap Back .
