Notes for consultation visits are entered efficiently and with consistency using the productivity tools inbuilt in NewLeaf Vet veterinary software.
A macro is a predefined notes template that is inserted into the consultation visit notes with a shorthand key sequence.
NewLeaf Vet comes with a set of predefined templates which you can modify to suit your veterinary practice, or you can define your own. Each veterinarian can have their own templates for their particular speciality.
Examples of macros:
Auto-complete to automatically complete words or phrases as you type is another useful tool. New additions can be added to the auto-complete list on the fly. Shortcut to insert current date/time and spell-checker with ability to add new words to its vocabulary.
The consultation visit record is seamlessly integrated with the client and patient record. The patient's consultation visit history is summarised below the patient details and each consultation can be accessed directly from here.
The reason for the veterinary consultation visit is expressed with a treatment category and an optional free hand note. Using a combination of preset and freehand input is powerful because it saves time and ensures neat consistent entries. It eliminates repeatedly typing common consultation reasons like vaccination, microchip or suture removal. Using the two fields together you can develop an effective shorthand.
Consistency makes it quicker to read the reason for visit on the day planner. Treatment categories are user defined and can be colour coded for quick identification.
