Flowchart Notes can be created on the fly or from a pre-existing template, within the Pulsara mobile app or Pulsara HQ. This article explains how to create reusable templates to facilitate guided data collection.

To create a new Note template, login to Pulsara MANAGER as a Hospital or EMS Administrator.

Choose ‘Yes’ to make this template available for All Patient Types, or select specific patient types to have this access to this template.

When templates are added to a patient channel, all team members will be able to view them, however, by default, templates are not shared and available for other organizations to use. To allow template sharing, select Yes.

By default, templates are set to Private. Notes using a private template are available to be viewed by all care team members when added to a patient channel, regardless of organization, however, edits are limited to only care team members at the organization that created the template. 

If a template is set to Public, notes created using the template can be edited by all members within a patient channel, regardless of organization. To set a template to Public, select Yes 

NOTE: Edit logs for note changes are only visible by an admin from within Pulsara MANAGER.
