If you have Patient Portal or CliniPad then Medical History will be updated as part of that process. Otherwise the Medical History update will need to be entered in manually. Based on your Medical History configuration EXACT will prompt you to update a patients medical history. You can also choose to manually update the patient's history at any time.
To update a patient's Medical History open the patient and enter the Medical Tab.
Click the Update Medical History button
on either the Medical tab or the Tooltip:
The Medical History form will be displayed to you. You can now enter the Medical History data by clicking the on-screen options.
If you are using the Advanced Medical History Form then selections section will provide three options for each parameter: Yes, No and Neither (Don't know).
Once complete you can submit the Medical History by clicking on Ok, Save or Confirm Medical History button.
Sample Medical History Form
Activate / change the Medical Status icon
The medical Status icon is an important feature of the EXACT interface, providing instant medical status information, and functioning as a launch point for the Medical History (Tooltip).
To activate or change the medical status icon
Open the Medical tab and click the appropriate icon(s) at the bottom right of the screen:
The yellow and red icons can both be active at once, and the user settings configured to alternately flash each one, so that you are aware both conditions apply.
When using the Advanced Medical History the items below, if selected, will automatically mark an alert on the patient
- Antibiotic Cover Required
- Warning card
- Hepatitis B
- Latex Allergy
If Patient Portal Health Screen forms are being used then any questions where the patient has answered "Yes" EXACT will mark the patient as Infectious .
All changes are audited
Each time that you change this field, the change is written to the medical history list in the form of "Alert set to on" or "Infectious set to off".
The entry is automatically marked as void, so it only shows in the Medical History List when you tick the Show Audit check box.
