F2, Spacebar, Enter = Fast SmartText
SmartPhrases and SmartText can make documentation a breeze. Indeed, it is possible to complete a complex note without taking fingers off the keyboard.
Commonly used within notes and communications, SmartPhrases and SmartText help set the form and flow of a note, using active placeholders (e.g., SmartLinks, SmartLists) to pull in patient-specific details from elsewhere in the chart. When working with a text automation:
The F2 key jumps from one placeholder (***) to the next.
When in a SmartList, use the spacebar to select a list item(s) and use the Enter key to move to the next smart item.
Yellow lists allow only one selection, whereas blue lists allow multiple selections.
If using a pointing device within lists, left-click (=spacebar) to select and right-click (=enter) to proceed.
If dictating (Dragon Medical One), say "next wildcard" to move from item to item, then left-click to select and right-click to proceed.
