The HPI (History of Present Illness) chart tab is used to document any development of the patients’ present illness that was discussed during an office visit. It is an encounter-based chart tab where data differs from encounter to encounter if the data does happen to be the same or similar there is an option to copy forward from the previous encounter.

HPI can be configured by specialty and will allow for individual physicians to document in the most efficient way for them by offering options for freehand typing, dictation, and templated data you can click through.
Once the HPI is configured for your specialty, they can then be customized at the user level by utilizing our User Default feature described here:https://officeemr.knowledgeowl.com/help/user-template-defaults
