Problems Section in Patient Charts

Axxess Palliative Care now provides a Problems section in each patient’s chart where users can document patients’ problems alongside their diagnoses. This enhancement streamlines clinical decision-making by enabling users to capture and monitor a broader range of factors that impact a patient’s health.

To document a problem in a patient’s chart, users must have permission to view and edit patient charts in Axxess Palliative Care.

Patient Chart Permissions

To give a user permission to view and edit patient charts, edit the user’s profile and navigate to the Permissions tab. In the Clinical section, select View and Edit next to the Patient Chart permission. Click Save to finish granting the permissions to the user.
