Medications are now available in flowsheets

You can add a medication to a flowsheet in order to see medication data over time alongside a patient's relevant lab results, injections, social history, and other patient data elements.

Each medication record displayed in the flowsheet can show dose, frequency, duration, and start date. You can select an item to see additional details, including multiple dosages. CHR-6934

To learn more about flowsheets, explore the Flowsheets collection in the CHR Education Centre.
