 Subjective Complaint Statuses Minimize

Using subjective complaint statuses to emulate a dictating doctor

The paragraph symbol (¶) indicates that a particular status has "extended" verbiage associated with it.  The "extended" verbiage additionally includes the radicular sensory sets on the Related ¶ tab and the aggravating/relieving factors on the Worse/Better ¶ tab.

One initial visits and comprehensive exam visits, a user will typically choose statuses that are comprehensive to generate rich verbiage comment for that visit.  A special status of Routine and Initial ¶ is used for initial visits so that the verbiage doesn't say that "the patient returned for today's visit" or similar.  Routine and Initial ¶ is the generic status used for initial visits, but also sometimes preferred by doctors choosing rich verbiage content in personal injury cases.

Extended verbiage statuses are:
  • Routine & Initial ¶
  • New Problem ¶
  • Improved ¶
  • Worse ¶
  • Unchanged ¶
  • Recurrence ¶
  • Exacerbation ¶


Concise verbiage statuses are:
  • Improved
  • Slightly Improved
  • Much Improved
  • Worsening
  • Slightly Worse
  • Much Worse
  • Unchanged
  • Recovered
  • No SmarText – this status is used to keep the complaint's findings as part of the patient's record, but turn off the verbiage until the complaint recurs or is exacerbated and needs to become part of the generated note or report.

Using statuses to emulate a dictating doctor.  Use extended () statuses for rich verbiage content, such as for initial visits and re-exam intervals.  Use concise statuses to generate concise verbiage for follow up visits.

Notice similar statuses such as Improved and Improved ¶.  These statuses both report that a complaint is improved, but the Improved ¶ status additionally includes the radicular sensations from the  Related ¶ tab and the aggravating/relieving factors from the Worse/Better ¶ tab.
