Generic Printgroups: Have you wanted to display information in Chart Review, the Schedule reports, etc. yet were unable to find a solution in the Printgroup Encyclopedia? Do you have a print-group in place but dislike how it uses space, or wish the language in the data labels matched your organization’s terms? Do you have a static block of text like a legal notice or logo you want to appear on your printouts? The answers to these questions are more can be found in Epic’s “Generic Printgroup” functionality.
Generic item printgroups allow you to take nearly any item from a Patient, Order, etc. Label them and format them freely. Having minor knowledge of cache coding can bring out a wider range of options, but much of its potential is just selecting the items you want and accepting Epic’s defaults.
SmartText printgroups let you display any SmartText exactly as it appears in the Editor- including images and barcoded data. You can insert Smartphrases into the SmartText to get patient or order specific information to insert itself into the printout as well.
