Save and Continue: How to save an event and reopen it for Related Events to be able to be accessed
A number of system are set up so that assessment information or consultation information can be linked to an injury record or a medical record (called Related Events). Previously, you had to enter in a new record and save it before you could access the "Related Events" at the bottom of the page. Now, your system builder can set your event form to have a "save and continue" button that saves the record and leaves it open while the Related Events appear for you to access and enter.
Previously, to access any Related Events for a new entry you needed to complete the form, save it and reopen it from the sidebar
To previously access any Related Events or even some (Doctors) SOAP notes you needed to save and close the record (as shown here) and then open the record again (shown below) and then add in additional assessments or consultations etc.
Now, the form can be set up on the Builder to have a "Save and Continue" which saves the record and enables you to access any Related Events and continue editing it without leaving the form
The Save and Continue works the same way as a "Save and Close". By clicking "save and continue" the record will be saved on the system as an actual record, however it is kept open to enable Users to continue editing the record as well as to access any forms or assessments which are only accessible upon saving the record. The save and continue button removes the need to save the record, reopen it and then enter in the assessment details. It also works as a safeguard against entering in the wrong dates for assessments when you need Related Event data from the assessment to pull back into your SOAP notes (as shown in the steps below).
Once you enter in your initial information, click on the Save and Continue button to access the Related Events (as shown here), or SOAP tables that can only be entered once the record is saved
The Record is saved when "Save and Continue" is clicked and the Related Events are Automatically available to be entered, e.g. the Medication, Medical Consultation form and the Musculoskeletal Screening form. You will have different assessment to complete, but the work flow will be the same. The example below shows that a Medical Consultation is completed as a related event.
