The system EMR defaults to axis-less DSM-5 note format. However, there is a setting available that allows the user to change the note format to DSM-4 multi-axial system. In this case, the EMR system automatically formats the assessment part of generated note in multi-axial format. It extracts ICD or DSM codes from the "Assessment/Diagnosis" block for use in Axis I, Axis II and Axis III, the data from "Current Stressors" block for Axis IV and data from "Global Assessment of Functioning" block for Axis V. For users with the default DSM-5 setting, this assessment part is shown in the standard sequential format. In this case the data from "Current Stressors" and "Global Assessment of Functioning" blocks is included on the note in other logical places as separate sections under their own headings.
