The Expanded Clinical View provides Clinicians immediate access to key patient information without moving away from the days consult notes.
The Expanded Clinical View is a dedicated window for conducting clinical consults, allowing for even greater access to patient information as you type your notes.
To open this view, first select the Expander Icon in the top right corner of your standard consult screen.
Once selected, the menu on left side of the Clinical tab will disappear, and the Today's Notes window will be expanded with additional space and features.
From the Expanded View, you have access to the following additional features when conducting a consultation:
Activities Alert Box
Overdue Tasks and Clinical Actions will appear in RED text.
All activities visible from this box are sorted by Due Date, Oldest to Newest. Only the activities Type and Subject will be displayed.
Like Allergies & Reactions, a New Task or Clinical Action can be created directly from the Alert Box. Click the + Sign and select either Task or clinical Action.
Depending on your selection, either the Task or Clinical Action pop up will appear.
You can edit or add commentary to Task or Clinical Action by selecting the activities Type which is displayed in BOLD.
