Smart phrases for hospital based nurse practitioners

Hospital smart phrases

Utilizing smart phrases as a hospital based nurse practitioner can help NPs save sooooo much time charting!

Smart phrases are pre-written phrases or sentences that can be quickly inserted into your electronic medical record (EMR) system. Smart phrases (also called dot phrases) are a block/combination of frequently used words that can be easily pasted into the chart note.

Smart phrases are commonly repeated phrases, such as treatment plan/orders for atrial fibrillation with RVR or discharge instructions following a hospitalization of community acquired pneumonia. Smart phrases can easily be used in all areas of healthcare!

Utilizing smart phrases in the hospital can save a ton of time by easily inserting these commonly used phrases into the chart note. This prevents the nurse practitioner from having to type out the same sentences multiple times a day. Utilizing smart phrases in the hospital setting saves so much time!
