This branded term refers to a text automation tool with diverse applications in a clinical information system. A SmartPhrase is a text-expander SmartTool that allows a few characters ('dot' command or token) to be swapped for a longer phrase, block of text or templates. Typing ".pt" followed by a space or return key, for example, will be replaced by "patient".
SmartPhrase tools can be used almost anywhere that text is produced in the clinical information system.
Synonyms: SmartTool, Smart Tool
