CS-Link Tip: Editable SmartLinks

This week's CS-Link™ Tip comes from Lisa Masson, MD, associate medical director of Ambulatory Clinical Systems, EIS. She spent the last two weeks as staff of the Faculty Inpatient Service and reminds us that a review of the basics is good for all physicians from time to time.

She notes that an important basic tool is making a SmartLink (highlighted green in a CS-Link template note) editable. By moving the cursor over the SmartLink and right-clicking, a user can then add free text to the field in the position where the link was. This is helpful if you wish to add additional detail to structured data captured elsewhere in the chart.

One caveat: Once the SmartLink is made editable, it will no longer refresh itself when used elsewhere. (For instance, if you edit the medication list to show a unique detail or remove an irrelevant item).
