Managing Flow Sheets

Flow Sheets allow the user to track and study ongoing patient treatment. For example, you could use Flow Sheets to monitor such things as coagulation therapy, weight loss, and diabetes treatment.

Tips

Flow Sheets in SOAPware are created as Docuplates, and can be found listed in the Docuplate Manager.

It is now possible to create a Flow Sheets tab that can be saved as part of a Chart Layout.

Plotting graphs has been greatly simplified in SOAPware. A check box has been added to each managed item, which when checked, automatically appears in a graph above the body of the Flow Sheet.

Certain Flow Sheet Items, such as vital signs readings and lab report values, are automatically filled on creation of a new Flow Sheet if data for them exists in the patient chart.

It is possible to drag and drop a vital sign from the Vitals Signs section and add it as an item in a Flow Sheet.
