Add a Diagnosis During a Consultation

1. Select the diagnosis.

On the consultation page, start typing in the search field under Diagnosis to open a list of diagnoses. The available diagnoses are defined in the settings. Depending on the department settings, a diagnosis may be always required for a consultation. If adding a diagnosis is mandatory, but there is no need for a diagnosis, you can select a 'no diagnosis' option from the list.

If the patient has previous diagnoses, you can select Previous diagnoses to view and select them.

Depending on the settings, the + Custom diagnosis button may also be available for adding a free text diagnosis.

2. Add the diagnosis category, type and description.

  1. In a multi-patient consultation, first select the patient(s) that the diagnosis applies to.
  2. If you are adding a custom diagnosis, add a name for it in the Diagnosis name field.
  3. Under Category, select whether the diagnosis is primary or secondary. 
  4. Under Type, select whether the diagnosis is final or differential.
  5. In the Description field, you can add more information related to this diagnosis specifically.
  6. You can select a date and time in the Date field. If you do not select a date and time, the current date and time are saved when you save the diagnosis.
  7. The main Veterinarian of the consultation is added automatically to the diagnosis, but you can change it if necessary.
  8. If complication reports are used in your Provet Cloud and you have the required permissions, you can create a complication report by selecting the Create a complication report and create a task option. This option is selected by default for diagnoses that are set as complication diagnoses in the settings. Otherwise, the Do not create a complication report option is selected by default. You can also select the Complication report category and Complication report subcategory or add them later on the patient page. When you save a diagnosis with complication report selections, a task for filling out the complication report is created for you. Go to the patient page to edit the complication report.
  9. When finished, select Save.
