If you change the data entry setup screen in Consultation Manager you can speed up your summarising.
The two key areas to consider when summarising a patient's record are the diagnosis date and priority number. You can do this by simply changing your setup screen:
- From Consultation Manager, select Consultation - Options - Setup.
- Select the Data Entry tab.
- In the Forms Default Date section click the Specific box and blank out the date. This means when entering your data you do not need to remove today's data.
- You can also change the default priority so that any new history entries default to your summarising priority eg priority 1.
Note - The default date reverts back to today's date when you close Consultation Manager, however, the priority does not, so you may need to change it back if recording non-summarising entries
