Chart Navigator functions as the table of contents for charts. Chart Navigator allows a user to insert chart sections, as well as view documents in a patient's chart, in various chart sections.
Access Chart Navigator
- Click on the Chart Navigator tab docked at the bottom of the screen.
- If Chart Navigator is not docked at the bottom, Click on Chart in the main menu toolbar, and Click on Chart Navigator.
- Press Control + B on the keyboard.
Two main regions
Chart Navigator is divided into two main regions: the left side is a list of all the chart sections, and the right side will display what documents are within a particular chart section.
Helpful hint to the user: a chart section will be bold black if there are unsigned documents within the chart section.
Open Chart Sections not currently displayed in Chart Layout
Double click on any chart section within Chart Navigator, and a new tab will be created in a user's chart layout. Remember, the chart section will appear on whichever side of the chart the user last used-or which side of the chart the user's cursor was last placed on.
To view a particular document within a chart section, double click on the line item.
