eMAR update

When viewing medications in the eMAR, the "Last Administered" line of text has been moved to the top of the medication window, the text size has been slightly increased, the color of the text has been changed to red, and the the text has bolding applied (see Figure 1-4). This was done to bring more attention to this information and is only a visual change.

For Q-Log tab update

You will now see the number of unread Q-Log messages on your calendar tab on the left hand side menu as indicated by a "Q" and the number of messages (see Figure 1-3). If you know you have Q-Log messages but you aren't seeing this update, you need to select the "Calendar" menu item, and then select the "Q-Log" tab to initiate the feature.

Treatment planning library update

When creating a problem, you will be able to switch the content library when working in the goals and objectives area. The drop-down will display the standard DSM-5 or ICD-10 libraries that you have access to and any custom problem libraries that you create (see Figure 1-2). Once you select a library, you must work in that library for that step, but you can switch when working on objectives. When you are adding a new goal or objective, you will be shown the original library of the problem.

Custom Test improvements

We have made some improvements to our Custom Tests.

  • The "Provider" fields will now default to the user that is logged in, but can be changed as needed.
  • When creating Test Groups, the "Provider" will no longer be a required field, and the "Provider" when adding these tests to a client will default to the logged in user as the provider.
  • The list of tests in the settings area will now be shown by active status, and then alphabetically by test code.
  • There is a new special field that will pull the last entry of tests based on the received date. That special field is {CUSTOMTESTRANGE_LASTENTRY}.

For additional information regarding Custom Tests, you can reach out to BestNotes Support, or visit Custom Tests. For a list of available special fields, visit Test results.

Group Note update

When working with a locked group note, you will notice there is no longer an append button. This has been removed to provide clarification regarding the application of an append on a group note. When an append is applied, that note will display on the chart of each participant of a group note and cannot be removed. If you would like to append a group note, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to "Group Notes" on the left side menu bar.
  2. Navigate to the "History" tab.
  3. Fill out the necessary information to locate the intended group note.
  4. Select the group note you need to adjust.
  5. Select "Append to Note" icon in the top right corner.
  6. Add any notes that you wish to be applied to all participants, and select "Save."

If you need to make adjustments to an individuals notes in a locked group note, you must first unlock the note. If you unlock a Group Note that has signatures applied, those signatures will be removed. If you do not have the appropriate permissions to perform this task, you need to reach out to your System Administrator.

Custom Test update

When creating custom tests you can now delete any unused test (see Figure 1-1). This means that as long as the test has not been added to a client, that test can be deleted. If the test has been added to a client, then the test can only be inactivated.

Figure 1-1. Delete a custom test.
