By default, the Ocean eForm Editor will render patient results in a format similar to this example:
Name John Smith
There may be instances where clinic staff or physicians would prefer the resulting note to read more like a consult letter in a series of sentences and paragraphs.
In this situation, the resulting Ocean notes can be configured to render in this manner through a combination of Custom Notes and note formatting settings.
Create A New Section Item
- In the Ocean eForm Editor, create a new section item.
Edit Each Form Item
With this configuration, notes will group together across a single line of text. The immediate result would appear like this in the note:
Name John SmithAge 40Gender male
To make this note more human readable, we can employ the use of Custom Notes to provide sentence structure to our form items.
Write a Custom Note
In the following example, the words enclosed in square brackets correspond to text (and space characters) entered into the Custom Note box for each of the three example fields to make the resulting note read more like a sentence:
[The patient's name is ]John Smith[, a ]40[ year old ]male
Through this method, you can string together a series of sections and form items to display long-form content utilizing the results of patient responses.
The final version, as it will appear in the note preview and EMR, will look like this:
The patient's name is John Smith, a 40 year old male
