Create Custom Field Headers
Field headers are the dark green headers located in either the Summary or SOAP Notes documents (e.g.: Active Problems, Allergies, Objective, Assessment, etc.). Custom field headers can be created to be inserted into either the Summary and/or SOAP Note sections.
The default field headers are very important to continue to use for their functions as they contain hard coded functions in the background. For example, The SOAP Note Medications field is required to be used for ePrescribing, etc. Custom field headers can be created for other categories, but all default headers must be used for Dx's, Plan, Medications, etc.
