The Main Screen of the ezChartWriter is divided into two primary sections:  the left side section is the Button Menu and the right-side is the Open/Active Charts List. Much like in a paper-based office, charts can be created and "opened". When in "opened" status, they display in the Open Charts. To avoid confusion, the term "Charts" relates to the patient demographics and Encounters relate to an exam chart.   clip0264


Open Charts Section

When you are doing work on a patient's Chart, it usually needs to be in "open" status. By double clicking on the patient name, you open the Encounter List for that patient.
