Changes have been made to the Paragraph of Text fields regarding the way html code is handled

Paragraph of Text Fields are set up to enable some very basic html code to be written into it (e.g. <br> for a line break). However, to protect against someone trying to embed html code of a malicious nature, the system was designed to disgard any html code that was written incorrectly, or suspiciously. Unfortunately, the < symbol indicates the start of a command; when Users were entering in medical notes such as Lx<Rx with no gap inbetween (as a Lx < Rx wasn't interpreted as html) anything after the "<" was being interpreted as malicious html code and it was not saved.

These text field have now been updated so that users can use the < symbol across a number of instances. However, security checks are still in place for any "malicious" html code. A < can be used in a sentence now, but if specific commands are written in then they will either be interpreted as text and displayed as text, or they will be disguarded. This is purely in the interest of data protection, and the security of your data.

Previously, if the medical notes were entered with no gap between text and the < symbol, the data after it would be disguarded

Previously, if the medical notes were entered with no gap between text and the &lt; symbol, the data after it would be disguarded
  • O:
  • Lx flx: mid shin - min pulling at EOR Mid Lx bilat
  • Lx ext: feels restricted at EOR 4/10 p bilat Mid Lx
  • Lx RSF<LSF: feels restricted at EOR 4/10 p bilat Mid Lx
  • Lx Quadrant: bilat 4/10 pain mid Lx at EOR
  • Tx: stiff ++
  • Posture: increased Lx lordosis ++, ant tilt pelvis
  • Palp: m spasm Tx paraspinals and glutes ++

This would only be saved as :

  • Lx flx: mid shin - min pulling at EOR Mid Lx bilat
  • Lx ext: feels restricted at EOR 4/10 p bilat Mid Lx
  • Lx RSF

Now, all of the data is stored

Now, all of the data is stored

N.B. Keep in mind that most html code will now be read as text
