Between patient information, appointments, managing your in-house pharmacy, correspondence, and more, data tends to build up pretty quickly when you’re a busy doctor. Atlas’ search function makes sifting through all of this information and finding what you’re looking for easy and intuitive.
To search for something, simply type the name, word, or term you’re looking for into the search bar. The search bar is in the upper right corner of the screen no matter where you are in the EMR. If the term you’re searching for is a patient’s name, Atlas.md will autocomplete your query as you type it, and show you a list of patients with matching names. Clicking on a patient’s name will take you directly to their chart.
Search Results Page
If the search result doesn’t appear immediately in the search bar, click “Search in all records” at the bottom of the list of autocompleted results. This will bring you to the Search Results Page. Here you can view where the term you searched for appeared throughout Atlas.md. The results are ordered so that patients, including archived patients, are displayed first, followed by any notes, appointments, or messages that mention the term you searched for.
The amount of data generated by a search like this can still be quite substantial, so if you’d like to narrow your search further, you can do so by clicking on the filter button that says “All results” below the search bar. Here you can filter the search results by a specific category such as notes, attachments, labs, prescriptions, and more. You can also order your results from newest to oldest by clicking on the cog icon then, “Sort by date.”
Searching a Patient’s Record
If you’d like to search for something specific within a patient’s chart, you can do so by heading to their chart and entering what you’re looking for into the search bar. Once Atlas.md displays a list of possible results, click on “Search in X patient’s record.” The search results will then be limited to within that patient’s chart.
Atlas.md also lets you search for specific conditions and diseases, or patients afflicted with a particular chronic condition using an ICD-10 search function.
Whenever you type an ICD-10 code into the search bar, Atlas.md will automatically recognize it and sort the results by patients with chronic conditions mentioned first and then any general mentions of the code below that. You can filter the results by “Any Mention” or “Patients With Chronic Conditions” using the filter button at the top of the page.
Just as with an ordinary search, if you type the ICD-10 code into the search bar while in a patient’s chart, you’ll have the option to limit the search to within only that chart. You can also search for multiple ICD-10 codes simultaneously; simply separate them with a semicolon when typing them into the search bar.
Once you’ve identified a list of patients using an ICD-10 search function, you can then export that list by clicking on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen, then selecting “Export List of Patients.”
