Create Tables in the Progress Note

Here's a great tip for making your progress notes even better. Ever wish you had a way to create a table in a progress note? It's easy to do.

1. Use Microsoft Word to create the table, including all the attributes and labels. Select the table, then copy it to the Windows clipboard.

2. Open the progress note, then click the section you want to place the table. In this case, it's in Examination under the Peripheral Pulses subsection. Paste it into the section, fill in the values, then click OK.

3. From the Progress Note screen you can see the table.

Tip: If you'd like to reuse this blank table in the future, just save it as a template first.
