Ticklers are simply reminders that you can create in Avaros Open EMR. They can be reminders related to anything both clinical and administrative.
To add a tickler, simply do the following:
1. Select "Tickler" at the top of the Schedule View in the menu bar. If you're in the Encounter View, you can also click the + in the tickler section.
2. In the tickler page that appears, you can view outstanding ticklers. To add a new tickler, select "Add Tickler" at the bottom of the page.
3. In the new window, enter the information for the reminder you'd like to create. Once done, select "Submit and EXIT" to save the tickler.
4. The "tickler" tab will now appear red at the top of the menu bar with a superscript to notify you of relevant reminders as they come due. They will also remind you in the patients chart if linked to a patient by appearing red, and in the schedule view with a red asterisk.
