EMR & EDR Template Builder Element - Checkbox

The Checkbox Element is designed for use when there are two possible responses to a given prompt.
Add a Checkbox to the Form by dragging the Checkbox from the Form Elements box in the Form Section Palette (EMR/EDR > Toggle Palette) to the Form Section. Click the block to edit the name, size, position, and special properties in the Inspector.

Within the Inspector, the General tab sets general attributes for the checkbox.
  • Name: The checkbox label that appears on the form
  • X and Y: The checkbox position within the Form Section grid
  • Width and Height: The checkbox dimensions
  • Required Field: Sets the Checkbox as a required field
  • Hide Label: Prevents the name from appearing on the form

Within the Inspector, the Option tab sets customized information that controls the checkbox in Narrative View.
  • Default checked on Patient Form: Sets the checkbox as checked by default
  • Narrative Checked: Sets the Narrative text when the checkbox is checked
  • Narrative Unchecked: Sets the Narrative text when the checkbox is unchecked
