Filling Out Sheets
Several Sheet types are generated on screen before printing, emailing, or saving. These sheets can be filled in, edited, signed on the Fill Sheet window. Below is an example of a patient registration form.
Date time: The date and time the form is generated.
Description: The default is the sheet description on the Edit Properties window.
Internal Note: Enter any notes.
Show Order in Kiosk: If adding this form to the Kiosk queue, enter the form's order in the queue.
Eraser Tool: Check the box to turn the pointer into an eraser to remove a freehand drawing on form. Then click and drag, or use the stylus, to erase a drawing. A drawing is defined as a continuous curved line without lifting the pen, so a continuous line is considered a single object. Uncheck to turn the eraser off.
Print/Email: Print and/or email the form.
If email is selected, the form or letter will be converted to a PDF and attached to the outgoing email.
Click OK. Paper copies are sent directly to the printer. For emails, see Email. Once printed or emailed, the sheet is archived in the database for later reference. Sheets can be viewed at the bottom of the Account module or in the Chart module.
Create PDF: Generate a PDF version of the form.
Change Patient: Associate the sheet with a different patient. Select the patient then click OK to move the sheet. It will be viewable in the new patient's Progress Notes. Changing patients will not change or affect any information in the sheet (e.g. patient name).
Delete: Remove a sheet. The Sheet Delete Permission is required.
Restore: Deleted sheets have a Restore button. To restore a deleted sheet, double click it in Audit mode to open the Fill Sheet window, then click Restore.
Unlock: Applies to forms with an electronic signature box. Once a sheet is signed, it locks. Only users with the Sheet Edit security Permission can unlock it.
