Summaries

 

Clinical provides pre-formatted summaries which can be printed for patients. These are accessed via the Summaries menu in the Clinical Window.

Most Summaries open within the Letter Writer where a template is used to display the summary data. In this way you have the opportunity to add, edit, or remove information before printing or saving the Summary to the patient's record.
 

This table indicates which information is displayed for a particular summary and whether or not the Letter Writer is associated with it.
