You can customise the information that appears on patient profiles to include any data you choose, including custom fields and clinical questions. For example, you may wish to include a patient's blood type or marital status as part of their profile. This allows you to modify patient profiles to better suit your clinical needs.
The questions you can add to patient profiles are the same used for your clinical tool templates. This allows you to re-use questions on questionnaires as well as on custom patient profiles.
Customised patient profiles are not enabled by default. To enable custom patient profiles:
Click Settings > General.
In the Patient Settings section, click the Edit (pencil) icon next to "Customised patient profiles".
The "Customise patient overview" page appears. Click Add Question to add an additional question/field to patient profiles, then type the question. If the question already exists in your Halaxy, you can select it from the drop-down menu that appears as you type. Otherwise select the option to add the question as a new question.
If you selected the option to add the question as a new question, you will be prompted to choose the answer type and the data set for possible answers. Please see Clinical Questions for more detail on how to create a question. You may need to add your own data sets.
(Optional) Re-order the questions by clicking and dragging the icon on the left of each question. You can also archive questions or restore previously archived questions.
RESULT: Patient profiles and intake forms will now contain the questions/fields you added.
