Create Phrases for faster charting using keyboard shortcuts!
This handy new feature allows you to create a set of sentences or short phrases to auto-populate by using a hotkey in a chart entry.
You could create shortcuts for your most commonly used exercise prescriptions, billing codes, symptoms, assessments, areas of treatment, medications…the options are endless!
Once you’ve created the phrases and are charting in Jane, the auto-complete will work like this:
Here’s how to get started!
Adding Phrases to Jane
Phrases are added directly to each staff profile.
Get started by heading over to your Staff Profile, and select the Phrases tab.
Next, click the Add new phrase button and then enter:
- The shortcut name
- The phrase you’d like this to expand into
It is important to note Jane’s Phrases are specific to each practitioner and can only be used in the charting area. If you’d like to share your short cuts, feel free to export them and email them to a colleague.
Jane Tip: If you are new to shortcuts, start with a common phrase used every day.
For example, if you would like to note that a session was completed via telehealth, creating a shortcut called telehealth which expands into “This was a virtual session and was conducted using Jane’s Online Appointments.” could be helpful.
Importing Shortcuts to Jane
We previously recommended the chrome extension Autotext Expander, however, their newest version isn’t compatible with Jane. If you have previously used this extension, check out our document to help export the shortcuts from Autotext Expander and import then into Jane: Export/Import From Autotext Expander.
Please note that if you started your shortcuts in Autotext Expander with a
.or another symbol - you can just skip the symbol when using Jane’s phrases. For example if you import a shortcut as
.iceyou would just type
/icewhen using that shortcut in Jane’s charts.
How to Access Phrases while Charting
To access your phrases in a chart entry, click the “/” button on your keyboard and then search for the phrase shortcut.
🖥 The Phrases feature is available on laptops and desktops, it is not available on mobile devices.
You’ll be able to search by shortcut name, or by a part of the phrase to pull up your list of shortcuts. When you are ready, click the enter button or the symbol to add the entire phrase to your entry.
Phrases can be as short or as long as you’d like!
Do you have any pre-made shortcuts?
Not at this time. The Jane community encompasses so many different allied health professionals who may use this in their own unique way.
Can I share my shortcuts?
Yes! To share your shortcuts, you can click the export button which will download a file that you can pass on to a colleague or friend.
Can I import a CSV file?
No, however, check out this handy tool that allows you to convert your CSV file into a JSON file. CSV to JSON
