Sure it would be great...

But for smoking status a "cleaner" way would be 3 boxes you could just click ... sorry I don´t have the ccomputer talk to explain it ... like those boxes you click when you are installing a program and have to "accecpt" the terms and conditions ... uderstand?

Or could it be a module? So if I installed it, I could choose to make everybody be FORCED - or not -  to click on one of them before opening a new patient?

It is a major drawback in some Family Practisioners to FORGET to ask that question...

Somewhere very visible would be awsome :))) - just remembering the face of some students when you ask them about smoking status of a varicous patient :) 

BUT I guess we could make it a Health Issue ... I was just wondering if we couldn´t get it to appear while editing EVERY SINGLE episode / Health Issue - something like putting a tag on the name or the likes :)

Not sure what you mean here ?


Sorry ... it was to be what I would like to see in the future is ... "a field in the Health Issue ... etc.."

This is sounding like pre-populating the "health issues" with a variety of specific items some or all of which may be determinable to be non-issues.

I know that the GNUmed design plans, but did not yet implement, for any clinical SOAP row, to be able to be keyed/coded (I forget the precise term) to one or more classification entries e.g. ICD9, Read, Snomed etc

Perhaps a single health issue row "Risk factor assessment" could include some ascertainment of multiple areas (smoking, alcohol, IV drug use, high-risk sexual activity) with any desired details captured in the narrative and any notable responses codable onto these rows. Any positive items could be promoted to an independent health issue when circumstances warranted.

Would that work?
