How to File Completed MyChart History Questionnaire Information to a Patient Chart

  • During an office visit, clinicians must file the patient’s MyChart History Questionnaire responses for the information to be added patient’s chart.
  • The information entered by the patient appears in the Patient Hx section in the rooming tab.
  • In the Patient Hx section, check “Select/Clear Entire Questionnaire” to add all of the information, or choose checkboxes to selectively add individual items from the questionnaire.
  • Click File to Hx, then click File & Close to update the chart.

NOTE: You MUST check Select/Clear Entire Questionnaire or individual items to submit the patient’s responses. If you click File & Close, without selecting responses, the system will discard the patient’s questionnaire responses.

  • Providers not yet signed off to perform common bedside procedures (i.e., central line placement, paracentesis, lumbar puncture, etc.) require supervision.
  • All procedure note types now include a box to document supervising provider.
