How to Make Use of Observation Cards (blood pressure, weight/height (GP)

Brief Overview

Observation Cards are used to record different clinical measurements (e.g. blood pressure, weight, height). These can also display data in graph format and you can change the order in which cards are displayed.

The Short Version 

  • Select different Observation Cards by clicking on the Bell icon or selecting from the Record Type drop down in an existing card.
  • Change the order of the Observation Cards by clicking the Arrow icon and dragging and dropping.
  • Enter Graph display mode by clicking on the Graph icon on an Observation Card.

Instructions: 

1.  In your Consult Screen, Observation Cards are located on the right side of the screen as indicated in the Red square in the below image.

2. You can control which Observation Cards you want to see by 2 methods. The first method is clicking on the Settings Cog, then clicking on a Clinical Measurement, which will then be added as an Observation Card for use for your screen as seen below:

6. Any Observation Cards you do not need to see currently, you can press the X icon (As seen in images below with Red Square highlight). This will remove the Observation Card from the Consult Screen, but will not delete any data. You can re-add any Observation Card removed by the Settings Cog or Record Type method as referred to in Step 2.
