Tippy - Chart Search

Tippies can be quickly adopted with immediate workflow benefits...
  • CTRL + Spacebar = Search
The "Search" tool (top right in Hyperspace) can be a big help. Position your cursor over the Magnifying Glass icon,

to cause an edit box to appear,

where a search term can be entered (start typing the letters, e.g. "phone", and note the completion matching options that appear, e.g. "Phone Book") to find and click-activate:
  • Most activities, commands or functions that otherwise need to be found in the Epic Menu
  • Many settings, such as user interface settings and themes
  • Other menu-accessible functions that otherwise may take many clicks to find
When a patient chart has been opened, Chart Search can be found within the patient Storyboard (leftmost column). Here one can additionally search for specific entries within a chart (e.g., "diabetes"). Hovering over a search result gives more information; double-clicking jumps to the activity or information.

The keyboard shortcut (Control key plus Spacebar) is worth remembering.

If mouth is to microphone (Dragon Medical One), pause and say "chart search" or "search chart".
