You can add hashtags when you create a new health record. You can simply type hashtag or select it from the list. If you want to add a hashtag, contaning two or more words - use "_" symbol instead of spaces.
Hashtags can be organized into categories in the left column (i.e. Problems, Symptoms, Medications...). To add hashtag to category - make a right click on it and select Edit Tag. In the opened window you can set the category and add notes.
You can attach files to health record by clicking on the "Attach file" icon. The file you attach is not moved anywhere but is just linked to the health record.

Sometimes it's quite hard to describe how bad is your current health state. In such cases it's suitable to use the visual level indicator to set your health (or pain) level.
To set the health level just click on the "Health level" icon in the Health Record window. The indicator will appear in the Health Journal near the appropriate record.
Sometimes you need to describe where it pains (for example: "on the left, a little below the shoulder closer to the spine..."). In such cases one picture is worth ten thousand words. The PainT tool allows you easily create such picture and attach it to Health record.
Just click the PainT icon in the Health Record, select the needed part of the body and draw with marker where it pains. You can also paint on your photos, flip and rotate them.
To add a webcam shot - click on the Webcam icon in the record form. Then just click the "Take a shot" button when you are ready.
You can use this feature to photograph your external symptoms, medical documents or medication packages.
If you keep health record for a couple of years, you probably noticed that in certain months the same things happen with your health. For example, in July (during sea-vacation) you often have diarrhea, in October you catch a cold and in January (after the holidays) you have a headache. The Calendar section in Goopatient allows you to find out what health-related problems usually happen in a given month. Thus you'll be able to get ready or even to escape them by changing your lifestyle.
The most convenient way to keep doctor contact in GooPatient is to create a hashtag for this doctor (i.e. #Dr_Smith) and put contact information to the hashtag description. When you roll mouse over this hashtag in the health journal - the contacts will appear as a hint.
In the same way you may want to add medication dosage, procedure guides, etc to hashtag descriptions
