Often a patient will need to be monitored for ongoing or new problems which should be noted in the patient's record for easy reference. This may be a problem they present with as a new patient, or a diagnosis entered by your clinic. This will also be displayed in the patient highlights.
There are two ways to put information on these lists:
- From a Diagnosis - click on the Diagnosis section of the medical record under the patient's General Information tab, or click "Add Diagnosis" from the exam form. This will allow you to create a diagnosis from the Diagnosis Codes and then add it to the Master Problem List
- To manually add a Master Problem - scroll down to the Master Problem List section and click Create a Master Problem. This is a free field so you can type whatever you need to. You can also enter the Date Onset and Date Resolved, but these are not required. Hit the Save button when done.
