It also allows you to customize the layout of the note.  The note is added to the patient chart.

The Interval Hx tab documents the patient’s interval history and review of systems.  You can use the Phrase Construction map if needed.

Note:  A preventive exam/well visit note in Office Practicum is divided into sections which include interval history (e.g. parental concerns, nutrition check), a developmental screening, an exam, anticipatory guidance/counseling, screening tests, etc.

Each Pediatric practice determines which portions of the exam the clinical staff completes.
