eDOCSNL has developed and deployed a custom sidebar based on suggestions from our user community to increase the amount and value of information available at a glance while using a patient record. Using the sidebar, it is possible to see many items that are not available in the default sidebar, organized in a more intuitive fashion, according to user feedback. Based on guidance from the eDOCSNL Program’s Clinical Advisory Committee, an updated version of the provincial NL CPP Sidebar, called “*eDOCSNL NL CPP Sidebar” is now available in all EMRs:
Some improvements in the new Sidebar include:
- the addition of new widgets (boxes), such as “INRs (Most Recent 5)”.
- the added details that will now display within widgets, such as Goal details.
- the reordering of the widgets; and
- the ability to individually manage selected population-based primary care Clinical Decision Support (CDS) screening triggers/maneuvers through the use of applying and cancelling Goals. (Please refer to the Provincial Clinical Decision Support Triggers section above for more details.)
