Text Variables for Patient Vitals and/or Lab Results:


You can use special variables for pulling in the most recent readings for "custom vitals" that you have added using the following syntax to pull in the most recent value for that vital:


Vital name: [[pt_vital_SHORT NAME OF VITAL]]


NOTE that this may not work if there are spaces or special characters in the custom vital's Short Name. You can edit the Short Name to omit these, if needed, under Admin > Manage > Vitals. 


You can use the same pt_vital syntax to insert discrete lab results values. However, for lab results, you may want to instead use:


[[pt_lab:NAME OF LAB RESULT FIELD OR FULL NAME OF VITAL]]


When a chart part with this variable in it is used, this will insert the following into the encounter note:

  • Lab result field name
  • Most recent lab result value
  • Result date


To pull in multiple previous readings for custom vitals or lab results, you can use the follow syntax:


[[pt_lab:NAME OF LAB RESULT FIELD OR FULL NAME OF VITAL(#)]]    where #=the number of previous readings


For example, this will push any of the last 3 O2 Sat readings available:  [[pt_lab:O2 Saturation Rate(3)]]
