Patient Chart: Medical Records

Version 14.19

About the Patient Chart: Medical Records

Path: Clinical tab > Patient Chart button > Medical Records
Path: Practice Management tab > Patient Chart button > Medical Records
Path: Billing tab > Patient Chart button > Medical Records

The Patient Chart is the central point of access to all areas of a patient's complete Medical record.  The Medical Records window is a compilation of a patient's complete medical records. Every office visit, lab report, letter from a specialist, phone message, or other event is displayed in a chronological grid for easy viewing and printing. The grid can easily be sorted and filtered to customize your needs.   


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.
