Clinical Studio has the ability to create multiple types of graphical charts to represent the data collected real-time following the steps outlined below.


1. Build and execute an Ad Hoc Report for desired fields to chart


1a. Instructions for Ad Hoc Report use can be found here 

1b. Select desired fields to chart in “Fields to Include in Report” along with “Fields to Include In Filter” for any desired data filtering (including only displaying data for patients of a certain gender type, BMI, or any desired condition). In this example we will be producing boxplot charts of procedure tourniquet time data versus procedure laterality. To save executed report data as a source for creating graphical charts, input desired name and click “Add Report”. A green message stating “Chart Source Added” will be displayed when save is complete.



2. Select “Chart Configuration List” from Reports dropdown menu and create desired chart configuration


2a. Input name for chart (“1” in image below) and select the source report previously created from the “Chart Source Report” list (“2” in image below). Click “Add New Configuration” (“3” in image below) to create a blank chart configuration file.




2b. Click “Setup” in the configuration screen to create the chart. Select desired chart type from list (“1” in image below) and click “Use 3D chart”, “Group By Count”, and “Use Custom Titles” if chart customization is desired (“2” in image below). Create axis titles as applicable (“3” in image below), select appropriate X and Y axis data sources from chart source report data (“4” in image below), then “View Graph” (“5” in image below) to preview chart that will be created from the specified selections. Also note that a “Included Forms In Chart Source” legend (“6” in image below) is provided along the right column for reference as needed.



2c. When satisfied with the chart, select “Save Graph Configuration”(“7” in image above). The generated chart (“1” in image below) can be added to a database merge report following instructions provided here or copy/pasted directly into external applications as needed.



Chart Types:

  • Pie Chart
    • Use 3D Chart - displays data on a third, depth axis, such as a 3-D column, 3-D line, or 3-D surface chart to make it easier to understand.
    • Group by Count - The Group by Count clause will gather all of the rows together. 
    • Outside Label - Set own label for chart.
    • Exploded - It shows the components of an object slightly separated by distance, or suspended in surrounding space in the case of a three-dimensional exploded diagram.
  • Bar Graph
    • Use 3D Chart - displays data on a third, depth axis, such as a 3-D column, 3-D line, or 3-D surface chart to make it easier to understand.
    • Group by Count - The Group by Count clause will gather all of the rows together. 
  • Box Plot
    • Use 3D Chart - displays data on a third, depth axis, such as a 3-D column, 3-D line, or 3-D surface chart to make it easier to understand.
    • Group by Count - The Group by Count clause will gather all of the rows together.
    • Use Custom Titles - Add custom X-Axis Titles and Y-Axis Titles.
