Internet Resources - Knowledge Search

The menu bar to the left of the patient’s Electronic Chart gives you easy access to the other parts of the chart and other resources while you are in this area. Some features add various documents to the patient’s electronic chart, other areas give you access to clinical resources and Internet resources without ever leaving the E-Chart area.

You can search the Internet for current medical information about the patient’s problems directly from the ENCOUNTER screen
