Frequently asked support questions

 

How can a complete overview of all visits be seen?

There are four ways:

  1. Toolbar panel
    A timeline with all visits from birth onward is always displayed at the top of the page with all visits indicated by a marker. The timeline can be used to navigate between visits by clicking on the marker.
  2. Visits drop-down list
    When multiple visits in a very short time period are present, it may be easier to select the desired visit by clicking on the round button with the downward pointing arrow below the right hand end of the timeline. This list shows the date of each visit together with age, height, weight and measurement source.
  3. Printed list
    Open the Chart selection panel by clicking on the blue half-moon at the right of the screen. Select List and then the desired type from the selection shown to display a printable report.
  4. Graphic overview
    The growth chart is typically the first screen selected and of itself is an excellent review document creating a context for the visits and measurements. These exist for different measurements and can be printed.
How are new observations recorded?

Use the Patient data nodes in the Tree View on the left of the screen to navigate to the relevant section for recording attributional (fixed) information. The choices are:

  • Patient
  • Birth
  • Parent

Or Visit data information from:

  • Auxology
  • Puberty

Visit information requires a date to be entered by either:

  • Clicking the New Visit button on the toolbar
  • Selecting {New Visit} from the {File} sub-menu
  • Using the pre-defined keyboard shortcut Ctrl + F5
How do I get login credentials? (Available in GrowthXP Pro only)

Each GrowthXP installation has a system administrator responsible for creating and maintaining all user accounts. This person will register you as a user and give you your login credentials consisting of a user name and password.

How do I print a growth chart?

There are three steps:

How do I calculate a patient's height velocity?

Does GrowthXP contain the CDC charts?

Yes, all CDC charts including the WIC specific charts are included with their original layouts. That's one of the strengths of GrowthXP to perfectly replicate any country's standard charts. That's why we make specific national versions of the program, in addition to the language adaptation.

Does GrowthXP contain the WHO charts 0-2 years?

Yes, the US charts with WHO reference data 0-2 years were added in version 2 of GrowthXP.

Does GrowthXP contain the Fenton premature charts?

Yes, birth size calculations and all premature charts in version 2 use the Fenton data.

Can GrowthXP be integrated into our Electronic Medical Records?

We provide three different options for integration. The first two are GrowthXP Pro and Pro Viewer versions that can be called from your EMR, using a single sign on system. The Viewer receives it's datasets from the calling program, whereas the Pro stores data in its own database. The third alternative is our growth chart component which was specifically designed for integration into EMRs. Contact us for a detailed discussion on your needs and current environment.
