Closing Encounters

Closing encounters.

Complete your notes by the time you leave at the end of every clinic session. This is critical for patient care—what if a patient calls that evening or shows up at the ER? Your colleagues will need to know what happened during that visit.

After billing, signing and closing the note, don’t forget to route each chart to the correct attending for signing.  Do this from the LOS section, select the correct attending as the “Recipient”. The chart will be sent automatically to that attending when you close the encounter.
