CS-Link Tip: Storyboard

Storyboard in CS-Link™ doesn’t just provide a stunning new look to a patient's chart. It is packed with features and tools that are designed to make your workflow more efficient and decrease the need for mouse clicks.

Did you know, for example, that under each item in the Storyboard lies wonderful extra information related to that item? For example, if you are seeing a patient and would like to prescribe a medication but would like to first check their allergies, you only need to hover over the allergies section and—voilà—you are presented with a pop-up report detailing the items the patient is allergic to and their reactions.

No need to navigate away from you current activity or order entry field. If you wanted to add an allergy, clicking the section takes you right to the allergy activity. Similarly, Storyboard displays the most recent vital signs.

If you want to see the trend, however, just hover over the section and the pop-up report will show you the last three sets of measurements. If you need more information or want to add a new set of measurements, clicking once will take you to the appropriate vital signs activity.

Virtually every section in the Storyboard pane has this ability, which denotes many more use case scenarios exist where these pop-up hover reports help save you time and clicks to get your work done. Try it out yourself, hover and discover.
