Height and Weight Percentiles

As a pediatrician, I would like the EHR to automatically calculate height and weight percentiles based on patient's age and vitals.

    Also OFC to be added -it would be nice if just check box so could be added to those Growth charts for the appropriate ages. not sure where to find a growth chart either. As a Family Physician I see folks of all ages - the BMI helps but not for children.Thank you.

    A percentile is calculated already for BMI why not for height and weight. I am a pediatric endocrinologist and this is very important. Insurances ask me for height and weight percentile for approval of medications such as growth hormone. Right now I give them an estimated guess. Insurances, pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists make clinical decisions based on these values. Please include this feature regardless on how many votes Dr. Gamez' post receives.
