Patient Chart Badges

Version 20.0

Overview

Badges in the Patient Chart represent the number of outstanding items related to an individual patient. To see this Group in the Patient Chart, you need to have the F8_Chart permissionThey are calculated based on the logic below. In general, badges update every two minutes. If an updated badge count is needed before the automatic refresh occurs, the user can right-click in the Navigation Panel and click Refresh Badges.

Note: The badges in the Patient Chart are not visible once an Encounter or Well Visit note is opened for the patient. The badges are then displayed in the note itself. This is especially important to note considering the ability to use the tabbed interface display. If you are not seeing badges that were recently displayed in the chart, ensure a note for the patient is not open.
