Smart Flow1. Adding a new patient

Easier than writing it on paper, adding a new patient into Smart Flow takes just 3 things. You just need a name, weight, and a template. The other stuff can wait.

2. Creating a new template

You do not need to go into your settings page or any place obscure to create a new template. Just create a test patient, use an exisiting template and then modify it. From the iPad, you can save the template under the menu button in the edit mode. From the web, the "save as a template" icon is located in the menu on the right hand side. 

3. Add a new doctor

To add a new doctor to your list, just start typing their name into the "Doctor on Duty" box. Their name should be available thereafter. 

4. Deletesmart flow

Need to delete a doctor, template, or an item from the iPad? Just slide the item to the left and a delete button appears!

5. IV Catheter Info

Don't forget to add the IV catheter information to your flow sheet. From the iPad, you'll go into the edit mode and select IV catheter from the drop down. From the web, you can enter the info using the icon in the menu on the left hand side of the screen. 

6. Color Coding

You can color code your highlighting for any treatment. Some ways current customers are using color coding is to signify if there is a note or special instructions, when there is a dose change, or a fluid rate change. 

7. Add 24 hours

No need to grab a highlighter, just click "add 24 hours" from menu button on the iPad or the icon box to the right of the patient's treatment sheet on the web. Here you can decided if you want to copy the treatment sheet as is, or choose a new template.
