CERNER has "auto correct " system. When I write often pops up list of medicine or description of another patient ALAS terrible since am writing psyc group patient notes! Why? How to get this to STOP? The hospital program not correcting! Maybe cause MD's using AUTO CORRECT and inserted words trigger pharmaceuticals/prescriptions? I am guessing reason. But will find out who to call in hops to correct this for PSYC in pt. unit. I would like to know how to delete this auto correct for my dept. Thanks for answering.

    It may be that the CERNER software need to be tweaked to function with the other program.application. What is the name of the other software you are using? It may be there are custom words added to the auto correct dictionary or something else. IF it's pulling up a wrong patient then there seems to more going on here than we can answer with out more details on the OS and the other program that is using the CERNER interface.

    What is purpose of "auto correction?" Seems not useful what suddenly new words appear when entering progress notes Psyc dept not main thrust of hospital, this intrusion takes my time, stressful to retype, re spell words. Between assessments, entering computer, doing 3 groups, entering progresses on all pts daily no, time to retype, seems computer "care" not patient "care" over 5 hrs computer 3 hrs patients care. Why this program?! Why designed? Purpose?

    Auto correct is not always helpful. A lot of people know this from texting on their phones. Same principal, the computer is trying to guess what we really mean.Some times there may be a word that we start typing has many auto correct options. The replacement is set in the dictionary as to which one to use and it is based on what is typed. The problem is if the auto correct is set to replace a word after 4-5 characters and you have a similar replace set when 7-8 are typed the shorter one would be done first giving you the wrong results. I would check to see if you can disable the auto correct if it's causing you that many problems.. Worse case is I would type into a program like Microsoft Word, use their auto correct and then cut / paste your results in where they need to go if possible.

    Don't get too frustrated or overwhelmed. It takes time and repetition to reinforce the learning. Some of us have been in the computer industry for a long time and I mean long. I have been working with computers since 1980.. I'm always willing to help people navigate through the technology. It never hurts to ask.
