How to open the list of evaluations for a specific patient

By using GNU Health, the physicians have the possibility to open and make an Evaluation from the Patient window. This evaluation can be linked to an existing appointment or just creating a new one.

Evaluations history[edit]

The evaluations list in GNU Health

From the Patient, the doctor will be able to see all the Evaluations and, from there, he will be able to see the Patient Evaluations and History. The system give the option to print the report with all the patient information, very important when the doctors need to see the overall situation of the patient.

Information stored in evaluations[edit]

The evaluations form in GNU Health

The doctor has different tabs that will help him collect information during the evaluation process. The idea is to gather as much information as possible, this will allow the physician to have a better idea about the patient and to give a presumptive diagnosis in order to get to a final one and start the right treatment.

"Main Info" tab[edit]

In this section we can link the evaluation to an existing previous appointment or just start a new one. The doctor can input the patient complaints and/or present/existing symptoms or illness.

"Clinical" tab[edit]

The doctor will gather all the vital signs (temperature, pressure …), anthropometry info and signs and symptoms encountered during the evaluation.

"Mental Status" tab[edit]

The physician can make a quick Glasgow Coma Scale when it's necessary.

"Diagnosis" tab[edit]

Finally the physician can make a presumptive diagnosis and input more info about it as well as treatment plan.
