Big improvement to treatment notes data export

There was already had a data export for treatment notes.  Whilst it did let you get all of your treatment note information out, it wasn't really in a great format if you wanted to do any analysis on that information.  There is now the ability to also export treatment note data for each of your treatment note templates.  This allows us to set the column headings of the spreadsheet to the questions in that template.

You can find this in Settings > Data Exports.

If you choose "All Treatment Notes", it will export in the format you are used to.  If you choose one of your templates, then you will get the new data export.  This is great if you want to do further analysis of the information you have in your treatment notes.

The new treatment notes export looks something like this:

We also made an improvement to the way the data exports page works.  Previously you needed to refresh the page to see when the export was finished processing, now the screen will update automatically when it's ready.  You also don't need to wait on the screen, you can navigate elsewhere and come back later to get the file.  You can also queue up a bunch of exports at once if you like.

We really want to make your data as available to you as possible, this is another step in that direction.

    Any chance of combining patient data with treatment notes as an export to get deeper understanding for analysis, ie missed appointments, gender to do (for example) psychometric testing resutls

    HI Justin, certainly a chance of it.  In the meantime, if your excel skills are up to it, you could export both and use some excel functions to combine them.   

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Hi Joel,  Looks great, very excited about the wonderful things we can now do with this data.  

    That said, can you check whether *all* entered data is exporting correctly.  Just checked ours and it looks as though only the first line of the notes is being included in the export.  It's not uncommon for us to write several short paragraphs of text for some items, and for others (eg medication) to input data in list format.  Current format appears to leave out a significant amount of the notes that we input under each question in the templates we use.  Is this something you can fix?

    Hi Elaine, it should be including them all.  I am sure we can fix it if not.  Just to check though, are you sure it's not your spreadsheet program hiding the other info?  If you click into the cell and perhaps arrow down does it show more, or is it showing the full thing in the "data" bar at the top?  I just can't see anything on our side that makes sense for it to truncate it.

    Cheers for that Joel.  Just checked and yes it does appear to be there.  Not sure how we missed it, must be time to close up for the day eh. :-)  

    Thanks again for making this one happen, we knew it was coming but weren't expecting it this soon.  Big congratulations to all concerned!!!

    Thanks Elaine and glad it's there.  I have had the issue so many times myself which is why I thought of it :)

    Hello, I am aiming to transfer to online consultations. I was wondering if for some reason I needed to change to a different online consultation form system would all patient notes be easy to export and save on a hard drive? I am not intending to but it is alway good to know. Sorry I am a little new to this? Also I have seen that you have on your to do list a template option for an automated new patient consultation/treatment review form that can be sent before their first treatment. When are you aiming to add this? To the treatment not templates would it be possible to add body diagrams so that a quick pain referral sketch/indication can be done? Many thanks ;-)

    Hi Lorna,

    Yes it's easy to export everything if you need to.

    As for the treatment review form, unfortunately we don't have a time frame for it yet, but we'll update the forums as soon as we do.  You will be able to attach files to it in future, so you could add diagrams like that.
