Patient Chart: History

Version 14.19

About Patient Chart: History

Path: Clinical tab > Patient Chart button > History
Path: Practice Management tab > Patient Chart button > History
Path: Billing tab > Patient Chart button > History

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 History window documents a patient’s history. The window captures and displays multiple sections of the patient's history (Past Medical History, Family Medical History, Social History, and Perinatal History) in a simple-to-use and easy-to-read format.


Note:  Just 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.
