EMR & EDR Section Editor 5 - Combo Box


Elements are the building blocks of EMR Templates. Templates are composed of EMR Sections and Sections are composed of Elements. Navigate to the Section editor by clicking on the purple node titled Form Sections. Click the green plus to make a new Section or select an existing Section.

Start by naming the Section in the palette. You are allowed to set up the details for this Section such as height and color. It is recommended to include important Sections in the navigation. Once the Section details have been set, navigate to the Form Elements.

Select the Combo Box from the optional Elements. Click and drag to position the Combo Box. Details can be set in the Inspector. Be sure to give the Combo Box a name as this will help dramatically when we switch to the narrative side of the form.

Move to the Options tab to enter in the choices for the button. Notice that certain References can pull into the EMR form. Use the green plus to make a manual list for the EMR element. The Combo Box functions similarly to the popup box. The only difference is that the Combo Box allows the user to add a new option on the fly.

Be sure to watch the EMR Help Video on creating a Narrative to finalize this Section.
