Chart Search Module


The Chart Search Module is just what it sounds to be, "search Patient Chart", this module has been developed to allow the user to search for patient data such as in an abstract form observations, encounters, forms etc. in this case consider data like diagnoses, vitals, problem list, findings related to patient among others.

  • The module serves as a tool for rapid perusal of patient data.
  • The user can also filter returned results using several ways as category, time among others
