From a previous FINAL encounter, you can pull the prior medication, medical, ocular, family and social history forward, as well as the ROS. To do this  click the small Find Prior History button as show below:




You can achieve the same result by clicking the Prior History button at the bottom of the Subjective Findings tool.




A screen will appear with a list of finalized encounters from which you can select the prior data you wish to copy forward.

Click the Select button at the bottom and the data will be copied into the Subjective Findings tool.
