We would like to be able to write in the chart and then TAB to wire sizes and their next appt.
The assistants would like hygiene prompts, and elastic wear prompts.
The assistants would like it if once someone clicks someone into their chair that that patient is then unavailable for another assistant to put them in a different chair.
When we tried to switch to eforms, none of it wrote back to the software. We dropped the product as it was difficult to use and made more work instead of less.
It would be nice to be able to choose what kinds of information that is setup as a must have on the Add New Patient. The Red items that are currently necessary cannot be chosen, from what I can tell.
Good day Gwyn (email@example.com),
The Charting screen does already provide a scrollbar with up and down arrows when the information displayed in the TxCard tab is too long to display on a single screen. Below is a screenshot with the scrollbar and arrows highlighted.

Good day Audrey (audreyf),
Most of the information that is required during the various types of patient add (partial add, full add, etc.) can be configured in System Maintenance:
1. From the main Orthotrac menu, select Functions, Maintenance/Setup, System Maintenance.
2. Click the Patient Add Options radio button. You will see the following screen:
3. Click the radio button for the type of add you want to set up. Below is a screenshot of the Full Add screen.
Click in a checkbox to enable it. Checking a box will mean that the cursor will stop at that field when you are using Tab to move from field to field during the add process. Unchecking a box means that field will be skipped; pressing Tab from the field before will skip over that field to the next "required" one.
Note that some of the fields are necessary for Orthotrac to create the patient record and cannot be skipped. These fields do not appear on the Maintenance screen since they are required. They are shown in red during the add process. They include the patient's first and last name, Location, Doctor, Status and the patient's gender.

Thank you for the info. I was actually looking for a way to add to the Red Required info, namely a birth date and phone number. We have some employees who can forget to get those pieces of info if they are in a hurry and the items are not red.
