Search a Chart Note or Protocol-Based Chart Section

You can select Find from the Edit menu to search through a visit chart note, the medical summary, or another protocol-based chart section. You can also use your operating system’s keyboard shortcuts (ctrl+F on Windows or Linux, command+F on Macintosh).



PCC EHR will search the visible text in the ribbon. You will see the total found results, and the first result will be highlighted for you.

You can click the arrow buttons to cycle through matching results, or press the keyboard shortcut (F3 on Windows, command+G on Mac OSX, and ctrl+G on most Linux installations) to move to the next result.


You can use the new search feature to find a lab result, jump to a note about a specific problem or diagnosis, or find anything else that appears in visit chart notes, phone notes, or the Demographics or Medical Summary chart sections.

Search Through "Visible" Text: The find feature does not search through text that is not visible in the ribbon. For example, if the expand arrow on a Care Plan intervention is closed, you will only be able to find visible portions of the intervention.
