Introduction to Gynecology[edit]

Gynecology is dedicated to the health of the female reproductive system. All gynecology related information can be stored in the OB/GYN tab in lower half of the Patient form.

General Tab[edit]

Gynecology information in the Patient form (General tab)

This tab provides a general overview of the basic gynecological conditions of the patient. We can discriminate whether the patient is in a fertil age, is currently pregnant or is menopausal.

In the OB Summary section the key figures from the obstetrics history are displayed: number of Pregnancies, Premature Births, Abortions, and Stillbirths.

Below you can track the menstrual history of the patient with specific information including items such as date of last menstrual period (LMP), Length, Frequency or Volume.

Screening Tab[edit]

Gynecology information in the patient form (Screening tab with Mammography History and Colposcopy History open)

Screening is the strategy of testing members of a population for certain diseases without signs or symptoms of that disease. The intention behind screening is to identify and treat patients at an early stage of the disease in the hope to reduce mortality and suffering.

In the Screening tab of the patient form, four gynecological tests can be documented:

  • Breast Self-Examination: Check the box to indicate that the patient has performed such a test
  • Mammography: Check the box to open the Mammography History (see below)
  • PAP Test: Check the box to open the PAP Smear History (see below)
  • Colposcopy: Check the box to open the Colposcopy History (see below)

Mammography History[edit]

The Mammography History allows you to document any number of mammographies, each with Date, Result (normal/abnormal), Remarks, Reviewed (name of health professional) and Institution.

PAP Smear History[edit]

The PAP Smear History allows you to document any number of Pap tests, each with Date, Result (Negative, ASC-US, ASC-H, ASG, LSIL, HSIL, AIS), Remarks, Reviewed (name of health professional) and Institution.
