Dentrix Ideas

Clinical Notes Font Size, Styles, Colors

It would be very helpful if the clinical notes could allow certain text to be bold, italics, and/or a larger font and allow attachments. We are constantly duplicating information from clinical notes into Patient Alerts so that it is more apparent in the future. We also use lots of CAPITALS and ****** to bring attention to information in clinical notes. A simple rich text editor in there would be a really helpful addition.

    I would be nice to be able to highlight an important line in the clinical notes so that it stands out above the other notes.

    You've had the same archaic prehistoric word processor for over a decade. it's embarrassing that nothing can be underlined, bulleted, put in italics, boldfaced, maybe insert a photos or x-ray next to text you are referring to, etc.

    Is there a way that we can have the questionnaire in spanish? We have a huge Latino patient base and it is difficult for them to complete the questionnaire in English and its time consuming for the practice.

    Dentrix managers ,Instead of appreciating the feedback do something to resolve the issue, doctors , staff members , managers spend lots of time in front of the computer and certainly having to read your tinny letters doesn't help at all. This is an ongoing problem  and still not resolve .

    we'd like to be able to change 'type' color to red so that in the clinical notes when can type in red when the patient is a NO SHOW or arrives late or cancels short notice.

    Clinical notes needs to be completly easy to customize. This includes the text size and color. PLUS; the date that shows to the lefthand side of the notes needs to be easy to customize, (diferent colors used for hygiene vs doctors), this would make it easy to see which notes to open up if you are looking for something specific.

    Would like the option of having color choices for each entry - such as red to indicate "no show" or late arrivals; purple to indicate miscellaneous personal information. etc.

    color choices are a GREAT idea. When we used paper progress notes, Hygiene notes were in GREEN, Operative Notes were in BLUE, Administrative notes were in RED. The best idea is to have this fully customizable and perhaps have the ability to tie to specific logons, such as HYG1 or FO01 (Front Office 01) for example.

    Yes..I have to do the same to make things standout (CAPS, ****, etc..). Some things really need to be eye-catching.

    We would like to have color changes for text in clinical notes. Such as green for hygiene appointments.

    need to be able to color code by provider
  • Guest commented

    Yes, this would be great if we could change colors. Maybe hyg, could be one color, medical alerts could be another color, progress notes, yet another color. It would save having to read all the way through the notes looking for something specific.

    I shadowed at the INSIGHT SEMINAR yesterday in NY. An attendee suggested being able to change fonts, colors etc just like in WORD.

    to get to previous exams/hygiene visits faster, color coding by provider would be helpful.

    I agree, easier to find providers last entry, also would like to be able to put in NS in red!

    We need to be able to change fonts in ledger and in family file window. As some of us age and look at a screen all day, the thin small font that is there now is hard to view sometimes. If we could just make it bold it would help. I realize we can change some of this in windows, but I need to see as much information, clearly, in the most space possible. thanks

    I like that idea - I would also include the option of changing the color of the date/time stamp on the right so we can see, at a glance, if note pertains to restorative, hygiene, perio, front, FA's. etc.

    This is a MUST! It is so hard to find things in the clinical notes. The paper charts were easier because of the color coding

    Yes, I absolutely agree. We used to do this frequently in our paper charts. This would reduce the medical/legal possibility of overlooking crucial imformation and be a HUGE improvement. Windows platform has this ability. Can't that feature simply be imported into Dentrix?
