Occupation and Hobbies in Clinical Notes

We would love for our practitioners to be able to see the Occupation of a client within the clinical notes without having to go to the notes tab.  Could be a box at the top of the notes?  This would be handy for practitioner conversation moving away from pain issues or to know what kind of activity the client is involved in on a daily basis.  Also a hobby tab would be handy as well.

I'd prefer not to have this within the clinical notes tab. There are a no. of items that we need to remind ourselves of with clients - for example DOB for babies, some hobbies, some occupations, etc. In such instance we use the "Reminders" box, which we find suits the task well.

We use the reminders box for really important stuff that we need to know before seeing a client. Things that we need to be reminded of and that are important at the time.  Would be really have great to have some general information about the client hand while the client is being treated without having to click into different areas of their file.  Just sitting at the top of the clinical notes would be great.  It is a separate box in notes so why not a separate box at the top of clinical notes also?

I agree with Celia that having an extra box just above the clinical notes would be good for general personal info, leaving the Reminders/Warnings box for more clinically related matters.

Not sure where the best place to have it, but football team supported would be good to have.

I would love a tab to include:

"Date of Death" - on front client page near archive tick box


"Referred by" - with tick boxes to tick -  Dr, Internet, Facebook, Family Friend, Location, Yellow Pages, Website, Letterbox, Newspapers, Other [would love to run report on these areas - to check where referrals are coming from]

"Baby/Children" - name, dob (as we provide pre and post natal sessions) - [we currently put this information in the notes section].

"Medicare EPC" - name of doctor, date of referral, Allied Health - (list allied health areas to select from - as we have them seeing the Physio, Podiatrist and/or Dietitian), no of visits by practitioner type, expiry date
[we currently create billing account for Medicare, set fee category, and create treatment plan and write in note section this information.  It would be nice to be able to have it all in one screen/area to input.]
