Custom Physical Exam

Custom Physical Exam

Quickly bridge content gap – quickly build your physical exam using your own terms and language

EHR content gap can result in costly custom development. The Custom Physical Exam template helps alleviate those customization needs. The Custom Physical Exam template allows providers to easily create custom sub-specialty content, using their own wording, without having to deviate from the standard SOAP template workflow. Template Defaults enable providers to use the same custom exam from patient to patient.
