The Patient Selector Window

Selecting a particular patient Health Care Record (HCR) is easy in

HEALTHone™ . The Patient Selector Window has dynamic filters that immediately reduce the patient list to only those that match the filter.

HEALTHone™ is initially configured to filter by

Surname

,

First Name

,

Date of Birth

or any combination of these, however; additional filters can be added if required (see

Adding Additional

Columns

later in this session)

Sorting the Patient List

Each column of information in the patient selector can be used as the basis for sorting the patient list. Clicking on a column name will cause

HEALTHone™ to sort on its content.

Each column can have one of three states

– marked by an arrow or its absence.

1) Experiment by clicking on the Surname column heading

If initially unsorted the patient list now sorts into ascending surname order

2) Repeat click on the Surname column heading

Patient list sorts into descending Surname order

3) Repeat click on the Surname column heading

Patient list returns to unsorted state.

Adding Additional Columns

Adjusting Column Widths

There should now be two additional columns of patient information

– however; these are not spaced correctly. Some columns are too wide for the information they display and others are too narrow. The width of each column can be altered by dragging the adjuster bar to the left of its heading.

The HEALTHone™ Screen

This is the

HEALTHone™ screen when a patient’s HCR is open. The three panels mentioned in session one, problem, transaction and item, can be clearly identified.

Major Areas of the Screen

The HEALTHone™ Screen - Screen Panels

28

The HCR screen is divided into three separate panels: Transaction, Item and Problem.

Each of these displays a specific part of the patient’s file (HCR) as described below.

The Transaction Panel

The Transaction Panel is used to display each event that has been recorded. A new transaction is added to the Health Care Record for any reason not simply because a patient visited for a consultation, i.e. to record an experts report, a lab result, a visit at home, an issue of a repeat prescription etc. Transactions in this panel are divided into the two chapters: Administrative and Medical.

We will look at quick ways to navigate through the various transactions in this panel later, for now:

1) Using your mouse, click once to select any transaction in the

Transaction Panel. The transaction becomes blue when selected.

2) Now use the up arrow and down arrow cursor keys on the keyboard to move from one transaction to another. The highlight moves between transactions. Notice the information in the Item Panel changes to reflect the contents of the current transaction.

29

3) Now repeat press the up arrow until the Administrative Chapter comes into view. You can now see that the Administrative

Chapter has just one transaction and the Medical Chapter starts with the Basic Medical Information transaction.

The Item Panel

The Item Panel is used to display the contents of the selected transaction. Each transaction can contain one or more items.

Remember the discussion on this in the Introduction section.

Note: By default when you open a patient’s record, the last transaction displays. It is possible to set it to open automatically in either the Administrative or Basic Medical Information transaction if preferred. To do this click on the menu item « tools

– options » and choose from the drop down list «Open the HCR on».

The Problem Panel

The Problem Panel is used to display the patient’s principal active or inactive medical problems. This feature can also extend to linking the relevant transactions to the condition they relate too. We will show you how this is done later. It is possible to hide this panel if you are not using it:

Click on the

View

menu and select the option Problems

Problem panel disappears.

Click on the

View

menu and select the option Problems once again.

Problem panel re-appears.

4) Search for John Test then click on a patient to select.

The first transaction in John Test’s HCR is selected in the

Transaction Panel and his administration information appears in the Item Panel.

Menu States

Menus and their various options are dynamic in that they have two states, active or inactive. A menu will become inactive, and therefore unselectable, if the task they perform is not relevant to what you are currently doing.

Inactive menu options appear light grey in colour and active menu options appear black.

In some instances the menu will not be present at all. The HCR menu, for example, will not be present on the menu bar unless a patient’s HCR is open.

The HEALTHone™ Screen - Toolbars

A toolbar is a strip of buttons and possibly other objects that achieve various tasks i.e. open the Patient Selector Window; create a new patient file etc. etc. The

HEALTHone™ Window has two toolbars: Standard and Analysis. If an icon is greyed out it is not relevant to the area that you are currently using.

The Standard Toolbar

The Analysis Toolbar

To find out what a particular button does you simply place the mouse cursor on it and an explanation of its function appears in the prompt area at the bottom of the

HEALTHone™ Window. Wait a few seconds and its name will appear underneath your mouse cursor.

1) Point your mouse at different buttons on the toolbars and observe the prompt area at the bottom of the screen.

Note:The toolbars can be locked by default

– so they can’t be dragged into awkward positions. . To do this click on the menu item

« tools

– options » and tick «Lock the toolbars».

The Transaction and Item panels also have own toolbars:

Transaction Panel Tool Bar

Item Panel Tool Bar

We have indicated the function of some of the more commonly used buttons, however, the prompt area at the bottom of the screen will display a description of each button when you point to it with the mouse and they are also described on the reference sheet.

The Item, Sequence and Aggregate Selector buttons were mentioned in the Introduction Session and this is where they are displayed on your screen. The function of each button will be explained as they are encountered in the book. In many instances the action of a button is also available as an option on a menu, you can choose whatever method you prefer to select a particular function.
