EMR & EDR Codified 4 - Family History


The Family History Element is used in an EMR form to write data back to the Clinical tab in the patient’s chart. Check the appropriate boxes if the patient does not have a significant family history, or if no changes have been made since the last visit.

Click the green plus to add any findings to the form. Use the search box to search through the provided database. Unfortunately, this database is set and additions cannot be made.

Once the finding has been added, you will be prompted to enter in the correct relative.

To add this Element to a new Section, navigate to the Section Editor by clicking the purple folder titled, Form Sections. Click the green plus to make a new Section. Use the palette to give the Section a title. It is recommended to include this Section in the navigation.

Move to the Form Elements in the bottom of the palette to locate the Family History Element. Click and drag to position the Element on the Section.

Use the Edit menu or the Keyboard Shortcut, Command S to save this Section.  Be sure to watch the EMR video to set up the Narrative for this Section. There is also a video to learn how to add this new Section to your EMR Template.
