At SigmaMD, we've engineered our Clinical Notes feature to be both robust and adaptable, meeting your diverse documentation needs. Though there's a dynamic cap on note length, it's crafted to be sufficient for routine clinical documentation.
The imposed limit is a necessary measure to prevent technical glitches, ensuring a smooth system operation.
Understanding the Note Length Limit
The adjustable note length is devised to accommodate various scenarios, with the limit chiefly dependent on the degree of formatting employed. The cap's flexibility means it might be reached sooner based on formatting and content intricacy.
Nevertheless, the default limit is generously set to cater to extensive notes typical of daily clinical practices.
Macros and Clinical Notes: A Harmonious Pairing
The interplay between macros and clinical notes epitomizes the dynamic limit. Macros, a potent tool for embedding pre-set text snippets, also add to the note's length. Yet, the harmonization between macros and clinical notes is meticulously crafted to operate seamlessly within the established limit, fostering a rich documentation experience.
Please note, the macro limit is lesser than that of the final note. If the macro limit is reached, consider segmenting it into additional macros and nesting them, easing macro management on your part.
Addressing Limit Exceedance Scenarios
Though the default limit is high, on rare occasions, the note's length may near the limit. Here's how to navigate such instances:
- Review and Refine: Peruse the note for any repetitive or superfluous information. Streamlining the note to essential points can rectify the limit issue while preserving the note's core message.
- Minimize Formatting: Overly complex formatting could edge the note closer to the limit. By simplifying formatting—such as minimizing bold, italic, or underlined text usage—you can create more room for essential content.
We aim to make the note-taking process in SigmaMD as seamless and accommodating as desired. The note length limit reflects this aspiration, providing ample space for thorough patient encounter documentation while ensuring system responsiveness and efficiency.
