Amazing Charts EHR Tech Tip: Templates

Templates are a powerful tool in Amazing Charts. They allow you to document quickly, letting you spend more time with your patients. Unfortunately, templates often sound “generic.” For example, clinicians  tend to use gender neutral terms like “patient” or “they” in the template to make the text usable in every situation. You need not do this with Amazing Charts.

In Amazing Charts, you can personalize the templates to your specific patient. The program has auto-fill commands for the chart templates, letting you add not only the patient’s name, but also proper pronouns like “He” and “She” to the chart. The commands are:

%MR

%FNAME

%LNAME

%sex

%AGE

%he

%He

%his

%Him

For example, if you were doing a history of present illness template for a cold, you could use

 “%MR %FNAME %LNAME, %AGE years of age, notes a runny nose, head congestion, and some post-nasal drip. %He denies fever, chills, chest pain or dyspnea.”

What it would insert for a patient named Mary Smith is “Mrs. Mary Smith, 46 years of age, notes a runny nose, head congestion, and some post-nasal drip. She denies fever, chills, chest pain or dyspnea.”
