About Patient Chart: Diagnostic Tests

Path: Clinical, Practice Management, or Billing tab > Patient Chart button > Diagnostic Tests

The Patient Chart is the central point of access to all areas of a patient's complete Medical record. Use the Patient Chart to access and maintain patient records.

The Diagnostic Tests window is used to complete open lab requisitions, monitor diagnostic tests, and perform follow up. You can also ensure all open diagnostic tests are addressed in this location.

NoteJust like a paper chart, the Office Practicum chart, and other windows in Office Practicum, contain personal health information that should be kept confidential. You should treat all windows in Office Practicum (like F8 Chart) just like you would treat a paper record of patient health information, never leaving that record out in the open for others to see. More specifically, you should always close all windows on your screen and log out of Office Practicum when you are done at your workstation.
