From the view all problems page you can view problems and perform certain actions, such as adding, editing, or copying problems, depending upon which tab you are viewing:
From the Problems tab, you can view a detailed list of all the problems associated with the patient. By default, the Problems list sorts by problems with an Active status first with the more recent dates (Onset Date) at the top of the list. Resolved and inactive problems sort in the middle of the list. You can also manually sort the list by clicking on any of the table column headers, such as the Provider or Description column headings.
You can do one or more of the following as needed:
Add a problem. To add a problem, click Add Problem. For more information about adding a problem, see Add a Problem.
Edit problem details. To edit a problem, click the description of the problem you want to edit. For more information about editing a problem, see Edit a Problem.
Note: If you change the status of an existing active problem to Inactive, Resolved, or Erroneous, you cannot make the problem active again unless you add the problem back to the list (with an Active status).
View erroneous problems. To view problems that have a status of Erroneous, select the Show Erroneous check box at the top right of the problem list.
The problems with a status of Erroneous display at the bottom of the list.
Indicate that the patient has no known problems. To specify that the patient is not aware of any problems, click Mark as No Known. When prompted, click Continue.
Note: Selecting Mark as No Known changes the status of any existing active problems to Inactive. No Known Active Problems displays as the problem Description.
From the Lab Order Diagnosis History tab, you can view a list of ICD codes and descriptions that were included with the patient registration information that is associated with the patientís lab orders. To copy a diagnosis to the Problems list, select the appropriate check box to the left of the Description column for the diagnosis (or diagnoses), or click the check box in the column header to select all of the diagnoses, and then click Copy to Problems.
From the External Diagnoses tab, you can view a list of ICD codes (including a description or ICD code) that have been received from an external system (if your organization is set up to receive patient information from external systems). To copy a diagnosis to the Problems list, select the appropriate check box to the left of the Description column for the diagnosis (or diagnoses), or click the check box in the column header to select all of the diagnoses, and then click Copy to Problems.
Notes:  
If the ICD code (or codes) that you select to copy are a duplicate for an existing problem, a message displays after you click Copy to Problems letting you know that the duplicates were not copied.
