Problem List

The master problem list contains all problems that can be attached to a patient's problem list. Problems are medical conditions or other factors that affect the health of patients.

To access the list, in the Main Menu, click Lists, Problems, or in the Chart Medical, Problems tab, click Add Problem.

Search: Filter the list by ICD9, ICD10, or SNOMED CT code, or by description. As you enter criteria, the list will update with matching results.

Sort Options: If accessed via the main menu, problems can be reordered or sorted alphabetically.

Show Hidden: When accessed via the Lists, Problems menu, problems marked Hidden show in the list by default. To hide hidden problems, uncheck Show Hidden.
