Panacea provides a powerful consultation engine that supports the quick, efficient and accurate capture of clinical information.

Panacea makes extensive use of AAHA diagnostic terms, which provides an accurate, non-ambiguous method for master problems. Although the use of AAHA diagnostic terms is optional, it is recommended, as these are used extensively by Panacea to track and manage short and long-term medical conditions.

Creating a New Consultation

New consultations can be created by either:

  • Double-clicking an active appointment from the Schedule and clicking the 'Stethoscope' icon

  • From the Consultations screen, clicking the 'New Consultation' button at the top right (green '+' icon)

  • Clicking the dialpad (the 3 x 3 array of squares at the top right of the screen) and choosing 'New Consultation'

The Consultation Screen

Panacea will try and auto-fill as many of the consultation fields as possible based on how the consultation was created.

The consultation screen comprises the following sections:

  • Patient Information Bar - this appears only once a patient has been added to the consultation. It is read-only and provides key information about the patient.

  • Information - includes information about the consultation itself, including patient, doctor, time and reason for the consultation.  Assign a category for the consultation as appropriate.

  • Medical Condition - includes objective and subjective observations about the patient, as well as master problems related to the consultation.

  • Consultation Sale - use this section to add products and services to the sale related to the consultation.

  • Consultation History - by default this provides a list of previous consultations for this patient. Click 'Master Problems' to filter this list to only consultations that have one or more master problems that match one or more master problems on the current consultation.
    Click 'All Patients' to show all consultations (regardless of patient) that have one or more master problems that match one or more master problems on the current consultation. This is particularly useful for helping to find consultations where other patients have presented with the same master problem.
