EMR & EDR Element - Smoking Status

The Smoking Status Element displays the patient’s smoking status and history. This will display on CDA documents (clinical summaries).

Add a Smoking Status element to the Form by dragging the Smoking Status from the Form Element 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.

Clicking the green plus in the top right corner of the box will open a prompt that has a drop down menu to select a status from the Smoking Status Reference. You can also add in a Start Date, as well as an End Date.

The Updated Date is a record of the date in which changes to the record were made (this date cannot be altered).

There is a checkbox to verify if Cessation Counseling has been offered, and a date field to verify on which day the counseling was offered.

Clicking Done will prompt you to save and the information will be added the information to the patient’s record.

Any existing Smoking Status may be edited by double clicking the status in the patient’s record.

A Smoking Status can be removed by clicking the red minus when a status is selected. A prompt will appear verifying that the status should be deleted. Once deleted, a status cannot be retrieved, but a new one may be added.
