To set a document skeleton (DS) trigger associated with age, race, or gender, begin by selecting the tab in an open DS.
NOTE: It is NOT necessary to select any of the age, race, or sex categories. These are used to limit which document skeletons will be presented during an encounter. As with all filters, leaving the fields blank means that the search criteria will not be applied and will not limit the results.
Age Group: Choose one or more age ranges. This means that this document skeleton will only be presented during the encounter if the patient is within these age ranges.
Race: Choose one or more races or nationalities. This could be helpful if the patient is identified with certain groups at higher risk for certain conditions.
Birth Sex (gender): Only patients of that gender would trigger this particular DS.
