Aimed at improving laboratory data comprehension, graphical displays of chronological, numerically reported laboratory test results of patients have been made available in the EHR (see Image 1).

How to Access EHR Graphs

The graphs are available under the Flowsheet tab on the charting screen. Select LAB RESULTS from the ‘Flowsheet Types’ dropdown. The numerical values of the lab results are provided in the upper pane. Click on any result in the upper pane to display the related graph in the lower pane.
