Clinical Item Definitions

A definition is a full description of what a clinical item actually means and possibly notes on how and when it should be used.

Definitions may include drawings, pictures, sounds, animations, or any other OLE Objects as well as rich text.

Tip: You cannot update central definitions maintained by Communicare. Instead clone the item and add a definition to that item.
To maintain local definitions:
  1. Select File > Reference Tables > Clinical Item Types.
  2. From the Clinical Item Type Maintenance window, double-click a clinical item type.
  3. In the Properties window, in the Definition field, update the definition.
  4. Click Save.

In the Clinical Item browser, Clinical item definition iconDefinition is displayed for any clinical item that includes a definition.
