The Readiness To Learn dictionary contains a list of options pertaining to how ready a patient is to receive patient education. Entries are located within patient education in EHR. The dictionary is not enforced and additional items can be added manually.



  • Code - The Code is a unique identifier that must be supplied. This is not displayed in the product and is used for identification purposes only.
  • Name - This is the name that will appear for the end users in the EHR application. This should be unique to prevent confusion.
  • Mnemonic - This is not required, but it used as a secondary identifier. This does not appear in the product and unless you have another use for it, the recommendation would be to make this the same as the code.
  • Inactive - The inactive flag allows you to inactivate or hide an entry.
  • Enforced - The enforced flag designates whether a dictionary item is required and cannot be changed. In most cases, this comes predefined by Allscripts and should not be selected for new entries. If an entry is enforced, it cannot be modified or inactivated.

  • Sequence - Displays options in numerical sequence. If two items have the same numerical sequence then the items are display alphabetically
  • Allow additional text - Allow for additional text to be entered
