      • C = cancelled
  • Visits: Clicking on a visit will show the demographics page for the visit with the corresponding caregiver information, visit start date, visit end date, etc.

  • All inpatient and outpatient documents.
  • Can be searched using the search function at the top of the screen.
  • Clicking the "Use Document Favorites Criteria" box will search based on the criteria established under the "MyCareWeb" feature.  For example, under the "Medical Documents Favorite Search" of "MyCareWeb", selecting "NEU" from the "Departments" drop down menu while leaving "Services" and "Doc Types" as "ALL" will cause Careweb to only show Neurology department documents when the "Use Document Favorites Criteria" box is checked. To return to the regular documents screen, click "Show All Documents".

  • Adjust the time frame and lab sections on the main lab page using the drop down menus at the top.
  • Use "more", "previous", and "most recent to navigate through the labs chronologically.
  • View a condensed form of the labs by clicking "Condensed".  This will not show text labs such as pathology reports or microbiology studies, these will require an additional click on "see text".
    • To trend a lab or set of labs, click on the link next to the order. For example, clicking on "COMP" at the top of a comprehensive metabolic panel will trend all the test codes included in a comprehensive metabolic panel. The new window that opens will only show dates, so increase the maximum number of most recent orders shown to see more. Adding a 0 to make 200 then clicking "Update Display" is more than sufficient to show you what you are looking for.
  • To search for a specific lab in the past, use the search function to find it.
    1. Enter the test code abbreviation into the search box.
    2. Click "Search".
    • For example, entering "PCRHSV" will bring up a window trending all results for that test code.
  • To search for a common group of labs, create a search string:
    1. Enter the lab codes in the search box with a comma between each (E.g. SOD,POT,CHLOR,CO2), or
    2. Click "Search". The labs will appear as a trend.
    3. Click on "edit". A new search string window will appear.
    4. Type in a name in the "name" box.
    5. Click "Save".
    6. Click "Close".
    7. To search for that search string in the future, select it from the search string drop down menu, then click "Search".
    • Here are some useful search strings:
      Anticoagulation service labs HCT,CREAT,PLT,INR
      Cardiac enzymes TROP,TCK,CK,CKMB,CKMB%
      Cardiolipin and lupus anticoagulant assay GPL,IGG PL AB,MPL,IGM PL AB,TTI 1:100,TTI 1:1000,DRVVT PT,DRVVT RAT,LA INTERP,LA CONFIRM,LE,LLA

  • To reformat labs from Careweb quickly, try these programs:

Rad / Nuc
  1. Left click to open a list of studies (only those that have been formally read will appear).
  2. Click "View Images" in the upper right hand corner of the screen to open the Centricity window.
  3. In the Centricity window, select the image you want to view from the list, and click "view" to open the Image Viewer. All images that have been performed, whether formally read or not, will appear here.
  4. In the Image Viewer, double click on the image to open it in a new window. The image can then be manipulated as needed. Also, that window can be enlarged.
  5. Miscellaneous tips:
    1. You can right click on "Rad / Nuc" and open the Careweb Rad / Nuc list in a new window separate from the window that is open for Careweb. This allows you to view images in one window while keeping a window open for Careweb to simultaneous view documents, labs, etc. If you left click, Centricity and the Image Viewer will not allow you to view Careweb information without Centricity / Image Viewer closing first.
    2. On the Centricity screen, you only have to click on one study before clicking "view". Opening any study will open the Image Viewer. Also, linked studies will open with a single study; for example, clicking on an MRI will open an MRA performed at the same time. Additionally, there is an area at the top of the Image Viewer which allows you to open other studies without going back to the Centricity page.

Inpt. Med. Profile
  • If an outpatient, will show previous inpatient visit numbers.  Clicking on one of the numbers will bring up the last medication list for the patient.  Since the patient has been discharged, you will need to click on "Show All Orders" to make the medication list appear.
  • If an inpatient, will show current inpatient medications (Carelink is updated more quickly however).  To see medications from a previous hospitalization, click "Change Visit" and precede as if the patient was an outpatient.

ED / OR / TB Systems
  • Left click to open the Centricity Clinical Information View in a new window.
  • Hover over "Clin Documentation" then select "ED Arrival" from the menu that appears to see the triage intake form for a patient in the ED.

  • Hover over "Operations" and click "Anesthesia Case Record" to see a pdf of any procedures. This is useful for determining if a patient received any medications during a procedure that might have altered a post-procedure examination's findings.
