  • There is a HPI template generated for each complaint that has been entered on the CC page which will be shown when you click the HPI tab.
  • Select appropriate findings for that patient by clicking once for positive and twice for negative. 
  • The dots following each finding choice allow additional text comments to be entered. When entering text information in a text box, be brief. If more than 4 or 5 words, use the Other Information section in the lower right.
