With Semble, you can see a full history of a patient's record, including any prescriptions that have been issued to them, and which users in your practice have accessed their record.

Note: To view and manage patient logs, you must have a role assigned to you that gives you editing permissions for Patients. For more information on roles, see here.

View a Patient's Logs

You can view any patient's logs at any time, from the Patients page:

1. Select the patient who you want to view the logs for.

2. Go to the Logs tab.

From the Logs tab, you can see a full list of every update and edit to the patient's record, in date order.

To see more details about a specific log, click on it in the list.

Load a Patients Archived Logs

Loading archived logs for a patient refers to the process of accessing and reviewing historical records of a patient's data.

You can load any patient's archived logs at any time, from the Patient's "logs" page:

  1. Initiate Loading: Click on the "Load more" button to begin loading archived logs.

2. Continue Working: You will see a loading message, "Loading...". During this time, you can navigate to other sections of the application and continue your work.

3. Return to Logs: After a few minutes, return to the Patient Logs page to view the loaded archived logs.

Logs are considered archived after 30 days. When you load these archived logs, they will remain accessible on the Patient Logs tab for a maximum of 3 days. After this 3-day period, you will need to initiate the loading process again by clicking the "Load archived logs" button.

This feature is designed to enhance your workflow efficiency by allowing you to multitask while the system processes your request.
