Abstract

Electronic medical records (EMR) are used increasingly in contemporary medical care. Function, pain, global status, and RAPID3 scores remain important considerations in all rheumatic diseases. Inclusion of these scores in a flowsheet that also includes laboratory tests and medications could transform the EMR into a true medical database. Flowsheets are presented for patients with rheumatologic diagnoses other than rheumatoid arthritis to illustrate the value of the multidimensional health assessment questionnaire and RAPID3 scores in an electronic database for an EMR.
