The New Clinical Visit Summary (CVS)

The Clinical Visit Summary (CVS) has now replaced the Patient Instructions in EMR. They will no longer automatically print out from the meaningful use checklist and must be generated and printed using the “Generate CVS” button found on the MU Checklist at the end of your visit.


After clicking Generate CVS, a pop up window will show allowing you to customize and print the CVS. After any customizations, be sure to click “Save and Close” to save your changes before printing. If you do not want to make any customizations to your CVS, simply click “Print”.

**Note: Any customizations done on the CVS are for that patient encounter only. Any changes will not cross over to any other patient or visit. All customizations must be done individually.




The button on your Meaningful Use checklist will now change to green and will say “REGENERATE CVS”. You can use this button to regenerate the CVS if needed.

**NOTE: If you close the pop up without printing the CVS, the button will still turn green and say “REGENERATE CVS”. This does not necessarily mean the CVS has been printed and counted for Meaningful use. When in doubt, check the office visit on the document tab to see if the generated CVS is appended to the note.

After the CVS has been generated, it will append the office visit it was generated from and can be viewed from the document tab in the patient’s chart.

Using the “Smart List” In EMR

In EMR 9.8, GE has provided what is called the “Smart List” in the problems module. This smart list will generate the top 5 problems according to the letters you type into the search field.


**Note: Depending on the clinic/specialty you are in, your search may not default to the Smart list, it may default to a custom list made for that particular clinic/specialty.

Changing your default search to the “Smart List”

If you would like to search using the “Smart List” rather than the custom list for your clinic or specialty, follow the steps below to change your preferences.

1. Go to Go>Setup>Preferences


2. Open up the Chart Folder and select Custom Lists


3. Select *Smart List in the drop down for “Problem Custom List:”


**Note: You will see this change the next time you open the problems module to search for a diagnosis.
