For small teams with short patient lists, it's easy to find a given patient. What if your lists have over 100 patients? Listrunner offers different tools to help you focus on exactly who you're caring for.

This article covers Tags and Filters. Be sure to read up on Search and Sort.

 

Filtering down your patient list

Seeing too many patient lists or patients? You can filter down what you see to specific lists or specific tags. The very first time you log into Listrunner, there will be no filters applied. Afterwards, Listrunner will remember all filters you last used and apply them automatically. You can even have one preferred setup for the web app and a different setting for the mobile app.

Here's how you filter in the Listrunner web app:

  1. Just under the menu bar, you'll see two dropdown menus called 'SHOWING LISTS' and 'FILTER BY TAGS'. Click one of them.
  2. Click on an option to add it to your filtered view, or start typing what you'd like to filter by.
  3. To remove a filter, just click the 'X'.
  4. Remember to remove all filters if you want to see every patient and team.

Here's how you filter in the Listrunner mobile app:

  1. At the top of the Patients screen, just under the blue header, there is a bar with 'LISTS' and 'TAGS' buttons. The Tasks screen also has 'ALL TASKS' or 'MY TASKS'. Tap one of these buttons to open its filter options screen.
  2. Check options to add them to your filtered view.
  3. To remove a filter, just uncheck that option.
  4. Remember to remove all filters if you want to see every patient and team.

Advanced mode:

  • You will see any patient on List1 OR List2 OR List3.
  • You will see any patient with Tag1 OR Tag2 OR Tag3.
  • You will see any patient on List1 AND with Tag1.
  • You will see any patient on (List1 OR List2) AND with (Tag1 OR Tag2). 

Adding and creating a tag

Listrunner offers a powerful tagging system to easily classify patients. You can filter by one or more tags to hide patients that are not part of that classification.

Here's how you add a tag in the Listrunner web app:

  1. On the patient list, click in the demographics cell to open the patient detail screen.
  2. Click on a the shared tab in the main navigation (this tab should be selected by default).
  3. Scroll down to the Tags drop down menu and click it.
  4. Select the tag you wish to add.
  5. You can also type the name of the tag you wish to add - if it exists, it will be added to the patient; if it doesn't exist, the tag will be created and added to the patient.

Here's how you add a tag in the Listrunner mobile app:

  1. On the Patient tab, click on the patient's row.
  2. On the Patient detail screen, Click on the Tags button.
  3. Check any tag you wish to add to the patient.
  4. You can create tags by tapping the 'CREATE' button in the top right of the screen. You cannot create two tags with the same name.

Tips for tags

Tags are very easy to create, and you can use them in lots of different ways. Some teams tag patients with allergies or comorbidities, others tag patients with the person responsible or the attending physician, while others mark service line using a tag. Tags are quite powerful for adding extra information to the patient demographics.

Remember that you can filter patients by tags. That means that if you tagged every catheterized patient, you can quickly get a count of how many patients have increased risk of infection. If you find that you commonly seek to categorize patients and need to get a sense of patient population by category, tags is absolutely the right tool to use.

Tags can be very helpful to denote workflow. Our customers will often use tags like “Discharge ?” to identify patients that may be ready for discharge. Filtering by that tag lets the team quickly focus in on these patients, and to create the plan required to discharge them.
