With the 3.5 release of Better EHR Studio we added many powerful new features and functionalities that make form-building even easier and faster. In addition, we were also busy fixing bugs. Check out all the details below.

Form Builder


You can now create a summary, which is similar to a form but used to only present already saved data. You can create new summaries and use fields from existing form or multiple forms.

Form summary

Similarly to the summary you can now create from multiple forms, you can also create a custom summary from a single form to show only the important data in a well-structured design to the patient. You can also add some mock data set on the preview on the form and select it while building the summary so you can see how the summary will look like with data.

New generic element Notification

We added a new generic element called "Notification". With this styled notification message, you can elevate your forms with a better design. It has 4 different style: Info, Warning, Basic and Draft.


Improved select screen design

The select screen design was completely reworked. The whole screen now loads faster, the history of the forms was moved to a button on the right and opens up in a modal and some other design features you can check out.

Additional text field validations

On the text field you can now set additional validation in the form of a RegEx. There are some predefined ones, but you can also write your custom one. Also you can add a custom error message if the pattern does not match the input.

Added return type validation for expressions

If you set the wrong return type into the expression you will now get a warning.

Return type validation

Improved code view

When viewing the code of the form like form description, layout and more we have not implemented the "monaco" viewer, which makes the code easier to read.

Improved code view

Added new dependency options for buttons for saving the composition

Saving the composition of a form can now be done on any button with the use of the dependency actions save composition and save incomplete composition. With this we replaced the generic save button and increased the flexibility of the dependencies.

Save composition dependencies


Improved documentation now also with a search function

The documentation was redesigned from scratch to achieve maximum usability. The biggest improvement is the search functionality, with it you can find what you are looking for in seconds!
