Tests – Medical History Summary Layout V2.1.6

    Tests – Medical History Summary Layout V2.1.6

    Noting that the Test portion of the Medical History Summary(MHS) is being enhanced with the next upgrade or version of HFE, here are some ideas to consider.


    Click Tests, Add New, and open Measurements with the intent of using only the ‘Item Name’ and “Value” fields to record a text test(like an x-ray): Currently the HFE program is designed to divide the column space equally between the “Item Name’ entries and the date, e.g. if History, Findings and Impression are input in three ‘Item Name’ fields, the MHS will display four equal columns, regardless of the length of the ‘Item Name’ entries or the length of the ‘Value’ text entries.


    Consider (1) reprogramming the Date column to a fixed, short as practical, width rather than variable width and (2) if possible, reprogramming the ‘Item Name’ column widths so the column with the most text(the longest) in the ‘Value’ field receives the most column width without compromising the necessary widths of each of the ‘Item Name’ entries(the idea is to shorten the overall height of the entire Test text).


    The (2) suggestion above may be a little tricky to program since a future date test record may have a different column with the longest ‘Value’ text. An alternative might be user adjustable column widths?

    Hi, Robert.

    Thank you for the excellent suggestion to improve the readability of the Medical History Summary, in particular with regards to the display of test/measurements information.

    I have added an image below to make it easier for folks to see the issue you are bringing up  with the current report. 

    As it turns out, these are pure HTML-based reports which are somewhat tricky to implement in a more dynamic way.  The good news is that we are a month or two away from announcing some neat new technology that should improve the overall quality of HealthFrame reports.  Stay tuned...  Smile [:)]

    Thanks again,
    Support Team

    Good News. But. I'm going to have to hurry and compose a number of "thoughts" into understandable posts. LOL

    I see in the previous post, you've already taken a shot at writing down some of those "thoughts"!  :-)

    Keep those suggestions coming and we'll keep trying to make the information more accessible and customizable.
