Symptom Tracking in Healthie
Symptom tracking is an optional setting in Healthie that enables clients to log bodily symptoms, and for their providers to review these entries.

Enable symptom tracking for clients
Like other Journal Entries within Healthie, symptom tracking can be enabled on a global, group, and per client basis. You can enable / disable symptom tracking within your Journal Settings.
By default, the "Symptom Tracking" setting is disabled for clients. Ensure the box is checked next to the setting, and update your settings to enable symptom tracking for your clients.
To enable symptom tracking for a specific client:
- Navigate to your client's account
- Select "Actions" from the menu
- Next to "Client Info" which shows by default, you'll be able to click "Settings"
- Scroll down to the "Symptoms" box and select "Track Symptoms" to enable the setting.
Tie symptom tracking with Care Plans
As with all Journal Entries settings within Healthie, you can additionally tie symptom tracking into Care Plans that you have created, such that clients who are part of a Care Plan will automatically be prompted to track their symptoms. Please follow instructions here (Adjust Journal Settings).
How clients log a symptom
Once enabled, clients will see the "Symptom" entry type within their account - when logged into Healthie from the web browser. A subsequent release will enable symptom tracking from the Healthie mobile app.
Upon clicking the entry, clients are prompted to select one or more of the symptoms listed, or add a custom symptom. Clients can adjust the date and time of the symptoms, and leave a comment if they desire.
Reviewing your client's symptoms entries
To review your client's symptom entries, navigate to their Client Profile > Journaling > Use the "Symptoms" filter
As a provider, when an entry is logged, you'll see an indication of the date/time of the logged entry, the symptoms logged, and can comment or react directly on the entry.
