*THE USE OF SMARTEXT IS REQUIRED FOR MEANINGFUL USE
Importance of SMARText
Exclusive to SOAPware, SMARText is the backbone for medical documentation using our EMR. SMARText entries replace and extend macros to auto-enter blocks of text data that are specially designed to be searchable by computer.
Because SMARText items contain much more data than plain (free) text, these entries make it possible for items used in documentation to have underlying relationships to other items in the medical record. Using SMARText structured items will prepare clinics for important quality measure reporting linked to Meaningful Use data, as well as to the requirements related to the PCMH, CQMs, and other quality programs.
What is SMARText
Pieces of information or objects, including text; CPT codes; medication items; images; photos; videos and audio files; can be combined to form SMARText items. Entered using a combination of shortcuts and keystrokes, multiple SMARText items can be placed together to form new and useful structures.
