We are adding growth charts for children this month because they are an important tool for healthcare professionals to make an accurate clinical impression of the child’s growth. This is one of the features for looking after children’s records.
For patients up to 18 years of age, PKB plots the patient’s key measurement on growth charts. By comparing to typical children’s growth rates using data from UK WHO growth charts, clinicians will use this feature to determine whether a child is growing appropriately. The growth charts will automatically appear at the top of the measurement page.
For patients 24 months and younger, the charts scale in months. For patients 2-18 years, the charts will scale in years.
At the moment the growth chart measurements are showing height and weight. More growth charts will be coming soon.
