Create Structured SMARText Items
Structured SMARText items may be created for direct insertion into a patient's chart. They can also be created to add to a pick list, bundle, cluster or toggle.
A few benefits of creating structured text items rather unstructured text include:
- Structured text able to be searched using the Data Explorer.
- Since structured text is easier to search, it may allow the user to be prepared for future Meaningful Use (MU) and Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) initiatives.
