Journal Tab


The Journal displays a patient's complete medical record in a chronological order.

For example, when you add a new entry in the Therapy tab, it also shows in the Journal.

Description Column

This displays a summary of the entry and can be expanded by using the arrow button.

Note - Repeat therapy items which are added but not issued are prefixed with 'Repeat', eg 'Repeat Zantac 50mg/2ml...' whereas any issues are prefixed with the issue number eg 'Issue 1 Zantac 50mg/2ml...'.

Priority Column

Priorities are used to signify importance of clinical entries and are numbered from 0 - 9. Usage of the numbers does vary between practices, generally the following conventions are used:

  • Priority 1 - Normally used for a chronic disease or significant illness.
  • Priority 3 - General medical entries.
  • Priority 0 - Sensitive items, these are hidden from view by default.

The Priority column is abbreviated with the heading P, here you can filter on which priority items you want to see.

  • - When button is on (yellow) the filter is active. By default the filter is active hiding priority 0 items.
  • - When button is off (brown) all items display.

To edit the filter:

  1. Click the filter button.
  2. Select the priorities that you wish to view.
  3. Choose Apply.
  4. The view refreshes with the new priority settings applied.
