Atlas allows you to utilize growth charts in the Vitals & Stats section to chart your patient’s growth.
Patient vitals such as the height, weight, and BMI can be entered manually or gathered from the integration of third-party devices and apps such as Fitbit or Validic. Once collected, Atlas will automatically display the data in easy-to-read Growth Percentiles tables and visual Growth Chart graphs in the Vitals & Stats section of the patient’s chart. Both the tables and the graphs use standards set by the World Health Organization (WHO) when charting patients from the age of 0 – 2, and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for children aged 2 years and older.
Depending on the data that has been gathered, you’ll be able to review the following charts from the dropdown menu on the top of the widget:
- Weight for age
- Length for age
- Weight for length
- Head circumference for age
- BMI for age
- Stature for age
Entering Past Information
In some situations, such as if you need to register the full weight and height history of babies, you may need to enter past data on a patient.
You can do this in the Vitals & Stats section. Select the “Details” button on the growth chart or table, hover over the row of data you want to change, and select the “edit” icon on the right. From there you can edit the date that the information was entered to reflect past data.
Printing Growth Charts Graphs and Growth Percentile Tables
It’s super easy to print out useful Growth Charts graphs or Growth Percentiles tables. These printouts contain a breakdown of the datasets for deeper and more precise analysis. To print a graph or table, click the arrow button next to the dropdown menu on the widget, and select “Print chart.”
