Load a Chart Template
Templates are usually created from one topic in the Clinical Content Management System. For example, a shoulder template would probably be created from a Shoulder topic. There may be many specialized templates created from one, more general topic. Here are some examples:
|Shoulder||General Shoulder Template|
|Rotator Cuff Repair Template|
|Shoulder Arthroplasty Template|
|Knee||Anterior Knee Pain Template|
|Post Op ACL Reconstruction|
|Knee Arthroplasty Template|
Obviously, there are likely many common elements to the templates that are created from the same parent topic.
When using a template, many elements from a topic can be loaded into the chart at the same time and then the therapist can simply complete required elements and add other important clinical findings.
When templates are created, some of the items may be associated with an anatomical region, such as an extremity. You will be prompted to select the affected extremity when loading the template.
In this example, the Left Upper Extremity and Left Shoulder of the patient are affected.
