Default-based WYSIWYG Templates
Charting Plus™ templates are color-coded to reflect the current status of the text.

Black Text - This is simply text which has been hard-coded into the template.
Blue Text - This is a default value for a pop-up window.
Red Text - This is an optional pop-up window that can be clicked if needed.
Green Text - This signifies that the user has activated the dialog and made a change.

Charting Plus™ templates also, in many cases, contain predefined values. "Default phrases" provide the text for a "normal" note. This reduces the time necessary to create a note because the majority of a "routine" case is already charted.

Our notes reflect a "What you see is what you get" philosophy. All of the exam charting is done from one screen. There is no need to switch between screen to enter each section of information. The note is laid out as you write it.

New Note from an Old Note
Routine charting or documentation for follow-ups are a breeze with the New Note from an Old Note command. Simple choose a patient's past note to use as the basis for the new visit. Typically these notes are very similar to the previous visit - so very little extra work is necessary to complete the documentation for the new visit.

ESP (Electronic Statistical Planning)
Charting Plus™ can analyze all of the treatments for a certain diagnosis and rank order them for you when you are writing a note. This ranking makes the common treatments easier to find and improves the speed of your charting.

Common/Topic/All History Elements
Charting Plus™ revolutionizes documentation with a simple and effective way of handling your medical content. Each history dialog contains a tab for Common, Topic, and All.

Common - This tab is user-definable. For Allergies, you are able to show only the allergies that you use frequently to make your list more manageable.
Topic - The Topic tab is simply a categorized tree diagram that allows you to pick your specific history items from the category headings.
All- Type in the first few letters of the item that you're looking for, and the "All" tab will search the database for the history item that matches your description.

Charting Plus™ includes History dialogs for: Medical History, Social History, Medications, Allergies, Family History, Surgical History. Appropriate disciplines will also include: Immunizations, Growth Charts, OB History, Menses History, and Genetics History.

Integrated Office Tasks
Charting Plus™ can improve the flow and efficiency of your office by creating additional documentation based on the information in your note.

Physician Referral Letters
In only 4 mouse-clicks you can create a professional letter to refer a patient, or thank another physician for their kind referral. The letter includes either the full patient note, or just the impression and plan sections for their reference.
Patient Instructions
Customized Patient Instructions can be printed and sent home with the patient regarding their care.
Patient Letters
Similar to a referral letter, the patient letter is simply a letter template that can be printed and sent to your client.
Physicians Orders
When an order has been documented in the note, a worksheet can be printed to show what the physician has ordered.
Create a script right from the program using the extensive medical library. The information for the script is also included at the bottom of the patient's note, and in the patient's medications folder for easy and consistent reference.
SuperBill Statements
The Billing Wizard pulls the billing codes from the dialogs used in the exam documentation. Simply associate the Diagnoses with the appropriate Treatments, and print the SuperBill Statement. (Some of the billing interfaces allow a direct transfer of this information to their program -call for information.)

Medical Object - GraphicThe most important distinction for Charting Plus™ is the flexibility. It is, by far, the most flexible and user-definable program on the market today. Our templates are composed of customized dialog boxes that each have a different set of characteristics. Some are simple text macros, while others have dynamic slider bars for quickly entering numerical values or anatomical graphics for describing the location of the condition.

Immunization History
The Immunization History dialog is used in General Medicine to complete a immunization record for the patient. This includes childhood immunizations and travel boosters.

Graphic Annotator
The Graphic Annotator allows the physician to write or draw on the Charting Plus™ graphics and then store them in the patient's multimedia folder for future reference.

E & M Wizard
The E & M Wizard makes short work out of the tedious challenge of E & M coding.  Exam elements in Charting Plus™ have been specially "tagged" so the program can easily count the number of E & M bullets that have been documented, and then list the appropriate codes for the visit.

HotSpot Editor
Charting Plus™ utilizes many full-color graphics to quickly describe an anatomical location. The HotSpot Editor allows the user to define and modify these areas, and the text descriptions. With this tool, existing graphics can be modified by the user, or new images can be added to the program.

History Repopulation
Information that has been added to the patient's history (from a note, or by adding the information directly to the patient's folder), can be pulled into the history section of a note.

History and Physical - Information available in the patient's history will automatically be repopulated.
SOAP - History information can be added to a SOAP note by simply pressing the HX button in the toolbar.

Office Text Messaging
Charting Plus now offers a secure way for medical personnel to discuss confidential patient information or offer reminders regarding patient care. MediNotes Messenger is a text-based communication system that is stored and distributed through the program database. Since it is contained within the secure program, only the recipient (Charting Plus user) is able to access the message.

Daily Patient List
The daily patient list can pull the scheduled appointments into a manageable list for quick access by the physician. The patient list can be updated manually by office staff, or can automatically pull in scheduled patients from the Appointments PRO electronic scheduling program (available through MediNotes Corporation).

Accepts Voice Recognition
Many of the new voice dictation software packages can dictate into Charting Plus™. This is true with the popular Dragon NaturallySpeaking™ and IBM ViaVoice programs. These programs can be purchased separately from Charting Plus™ through national or local retail electronic chains.

Note - When looking at voice systems to use in conjunction with Charting Plus™, realize that the minimum hardware requirements for these programs are usually higher than those for running Charting Plus™.
