Vitals Clinical Marker

The Vitals clinical marker will be added to the timeline whenever a new vital record is saved in the Vitals chart tab. While the information is originally triggered by a new vital record, a large amount of information can be viewed in the Vitals Trends screen.

Graph View

When the Vitals Clinical Marker is selected, the Graph View will be displayed.  This allows a user to visualize changes to vitals, lab results, procedures, and medications over a period of time.

  • Users can click on the Vitals or Lab Result data points within the screen to add the values to the graph.
  • Users can filter the data by time range
  • Users can customize the screen to meet their unique needs
