Accessing Patient Charts
Chart Rack is very similar to a user's chart room.
Open the Chart Rack
To reopen a chart, select the Chart Rack docked tab located at the bottom of the Chart workspace. At the top of the Chart Rack viewer is a field, or box, labeled Search, and the cursor should be blinking in it.
Search for the Chart
A specific chart can be retrieved via 5 methods:
- Birth Date
- Chart Number
- Phone Number
- Social Security Number
To retrieve the chart by Name, begin typing the name. As the letters in the last name are entered, notice the corresponding chart name is highlighted-selected in the list after entering the third letter.
To search using another method, use the Type drop-down menu to change the search Type to one of the others listed above.
Open the Chart
Once the name is highlighted-selected, in order to actually retrieve the chart, there are 3 options:
1. Press the Enter key
2. Click the Open Chart button
3. Double-Click on the name
