Ardens provide practices with a number of resources based on national and best practice guidance, to offer standardised coding and a streamline approach. The following support article outlines the available Ardens resources. 


Important Information

The templates, alerts and searches that comprise the resources are intended to help clinicians by presenting relevant information in an accessible manner. They are not intended to replace the clinical judgement of an independent clinical practitioner in the care of individual patients.


Each of our resources goes through a rigorous clinical safety assessment and is carefully tested before being made available for use.


However, it is also the responsibility of the end user to ensure that they make their own assessment of the clinical risks of using any software in practice. 


Please note also that we cannot accept responsibility for any tools which are modified locally. We would recommend that if you wish to edit a resource for local use, you should copy it into your folder before you edit the copy and deactivate the original. This will prevent our updates overwriting your changes. 


*Please note the following resources are based on version 15.1*
