Clinical (EHR) Release Notes June 20, 2019

In June 2019, your Kareo Clinical account will be upgraded to the latest version.

Flowsheets for Diabetes, Hypertension, and Vitals

With Kareo’s new flowsheets, primary care specialty providers and clinical assistants will now be able to easily review individual lab/vital trends on one screen. Flowsheets are offered at no additional charge and will improve patient care and increase efficiency by doing the following:

  • Enable you to quickly assess your patient's health trends at a glance by showing a snapshot of key data over time.
  • Provide you a faster and better care for patients with certain chronic health conditions (i.e. diabetes, hypertension).
  • Allow you to view historical vitals and lab results in one screen. This will provide you the ability to quickly identify any problems and make necessary adjustments to the care plan.

Watch Navigate Flowsheets to learn more.

This feature will be available June 25, 2019. Flowsheets will also be available on the Kareo Mobile app.
