ROS & Physical
This lesson will describe how to document in the Summary ROS field.
Summary ROS & Physical Fields
The ROS field in the Summary chart section can be used to store a review of systems related to the various organ systems. The Physical field in the Summary chart section can be used to store a physical examination for easy retrieval.
The ROS & Physical fields are from previous versions of SOAPware and are rarely used in more current versions of SOAPware.
Placing the Insertion Point
With a patient chart open and the Summary chart section visible:
- Place the insertion point to the right of the field header.
- Left-click the mouse to insert the cursor.
- Begin entering desired data using free text.
If the bold green brackets appear (as shown above), then the field is active and ok to begin entering data.
Entering Free Text Data into the ROS or Physical Fields
At this time there is not a Pick List available for the ROS or Physical fields, however a user can enter data into this field by free text typing. To free text type into the field, simply place the insertion point and begin typing information.
