Alerts For Important Patient Notes

Calendar Alerts

You can create a calendar alert from the Client Workspace, in the Notes area.

Calendar Alerts are notes regarding a client that are written by anyone at the clinic, that have been specifically connected to your calendar.

Any note created in the OutSmart Notes section can be labeled as a Calendar Alert.  By labeling a note as a Calendar Alert, you are saying that it is important for you, or for others at the clinic, to see this note when booking in the client which the note refers to.

Workspace alerts are essentially notes that are taken in the Client Workspace notes section, and are then labelled with a Smart Label that identifies the type of note it is.  For example, you may write a note like “Patient is diabetic”, and label it as a ‘medical alert’.  If you then configure your Workspace Alerts to include notes with the label “medical alert”, then these notes will appear at the top of your Client Workspace.

SOAP Alerts

SOAP Alerts can be configured in your Charting Preferences, which can be adjusted and set on the main SmartCharts page.  Go to the Main Navigation Menu, and click on SmartCharts.  On the SmartCharts page, click on the Settings tab to get access to the preferences.
