Diagnosis Settings

Department Settings

Settings > General > Department > Department settings

  • Require diagnoses: When this setting is selected, diagnoses must always be added to consultations.
  • Free text diagnosis: In this field, you can select a diagnosis that is used as a free text diagnosis. This adds the + Custom diagnosis button on the consultation page which users can use to write a custom diagnosis if no appropriate diagnosis is available in the diagnosis list. You can add a free text diagnosis to the diagnosis list in the same way as any other diagnosis. Note that it is possible to select a free text diagnosis also from an inactive diagnosis list, but it is recommended to use a free text diagnosis included in your active list.
  • Allow editing text entries of finalized consultations: When this setting is selected, it is possible to edit diagnoses after the consultation has been finalised.
  • Consultation text entry editing limit: When the previous setting is selected, you can define the number of days diagnoses can be edited on finalised consultations.

Editing, Deleting or Archiving a Diagnosis

To edit a diagnosis after saving, select the pen button (a) on the row. To delete a diagnosis, select the trashcan button (b). Note that you cannot edit or delete a diagnosis after the diagnosis has been used.

You can also archive a diagnosis using the Archive button (c). Archived items cannot be selected for use, but old references remain.


Setting a Diagnosis as a Complication Diagnosis

You can set a diagnosis as a complication diagnosis so that the option for creating a complication report is selected by default when the diagnosis added during a consultation. Complication report categories and subcategories must be created before this is possible.

To set the diagnosis as a complication diagnosis, select the document button on the diagnosis row and then select the complication report category and subcategory in the dialogue. When a user selects this diagnosis during a consultation, the Create a complication report and create a task option is selected by default, with the category and subcategory selected (note that the user can change these options or decide not to create a complication report).

You can also edit the diagnosis additional description in this dialogue, but note that this text will override any text you added in Adding Diagnoses to a Diagnosis List, step 5.
