Flowsheets are an information tool optimized for tracking observations at multiple points in time.
They are part of the everyday work of nursing (e.g., vital signs, Ins and Outs, etc.) and allied health (e.g., respiratory device measures), but can also be used by physicians to track important clinical findings over time (e.g., CiWA tracking of alcohol withdrawal, Geriatric Depression Scale, etc.).
Flowsheets are but one of many ways for deriving clinical scores and metrics. When one-off summary measures are wanted, it may be better to use the Clinical Calculator or the Scales and Scores Tool.
Flowsheets are available in all care contexts and are organized in an Activity Tab.
