Starting the Process

At the bottom of the “My Outcomes” page — which you can access when you are logged into our site — there is a section called “Other Clinical Information” that looks like this:

You start by clicking on the “Update” link in the “My Diagnoses” column — or by clicking the “My Diagnoses” menu item in the menu bar. This brings you to a page that looks like this:

Adding a Diagnosis

In the upper panel are the current diagnoses you’ve entered, if any. In the lower section is a list of diagnoses that we’ve set up. To select a diagnosis, simply click the “Select” button in the row of the diagnosis. The diagnosis will be added into the upper panel, thus:
