What are the new features in Paragon 14?
Updated Patient Card: Patient demographics are easier to see in the upper left hand corner.
Patient Profile (NEW): Report containing information such as advanced directives, allergies, demographics, family history, implants, home medications etc are now available in a single report. This report can be customized by the end user for their practice
New flowsheet search capabilities: Some flowsheets such as Lab can get very difficult yo navigate especially on long admissions. This new search function will allow the user to quickly scroll the needed row. In this example I searched for “chest”. I was taken to the Chest X-ray row with the specific row highlighted.
Prescription writer: Now allows for secure electronic submission of controlled substances
