Single Value

Single Value

Single Value or Count calculates a single value number for procedures or observations.

  1. If you are not already in Edit Layout mode, enter it by clicking the Edit Layout icon in the blue header.
  2. Click the Add Module button at the bottom right of the screen.
  3. Select Single Value.
  4. In the window that opens, continue customizing your Single Value Module.

Setting options for the module will depend upon what you are trying to count or what value you wish to display. The module settings (shown in the image below) helped build the module shown above using the data in our project.

Single Value Settings


  • Title and Description

    • Title: Name your project (this is placed at the top of the module - in the example above, we named it Actively Trying to Lose Weight)
    • Description: This will be displayed below the numeric value. The description tells what the count/value represents (such as # of Subjects Actively Trying to Lose Weight).
    • Description size (small, medium, large): This determines the size of your font.
  • Category

    • Type: Choose between procedures or observations(Observations typically has more data).
      • Procedures (such as fasts)
      • Observations (such as survey questions)
    • Group by Code (only 1 code allowed): Click the search box, type a known medical code/procedure name or any letter to search through the codes and names associated with those codes as well as survey questions asked within the project.
  • Value:

    • Source - This is what you want to count.
      • Procedures - total number of procedures that exist within the project (that is, this number would tell us how many fasts/procedures in total were recorded by everyone within the project)
      • Patients - counts the number of patients that meet the observation you are counting
      • Observations
    • Aggregation Filter Code search box (only available to select if source is either Observations or Procedures)
    • Property - Choose between Patient or Observation.
    • Function - Count (no other option)
    • Value Color - Select the color of the number displayed (black, blue, green, red, yellow)
    • Click Apply in top right corner of module settings box.
  • Click Preview at the top of the module settings to view it.

  • If everything looks good, click Apply to apply the new settings. This will NOT save the module. If you click away, you will lose this module.
  • To save this module and its settings to the layout, click the Save Changes icon found in the blue header at the top of the page. Or if you need to make changes, click the Edit icon in the top right corner of the module.


Clicking Apply will create your chart. It does not save the layout. To save the layout, you must click the Save Changes icon (found in the blue header). Navigating away from this page before clicking the icon will cause you to lose all changes since your last save.
