The physical exam can be written as free text or by loading previously recorded templates.

However, the software also contains a full standardized physical exam subdivided into medical systems based on Barbara Bates’ Guide to Physical Examination, Kaplan: United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Clinical Skills and other additional references. This will allow the user to easily set negative and positive findings in the physical in seconds by simply clicking a series of radiobuttons and checkboxes.
