To resume clinical notes
How to get there
On the Home menu, under Location, click (or tap) Overview.
The location's Overview page opens.
The Clinical Note Tasks page opens with the In Progress tab selected.
By default, the Date Range is set to display patients with incomplete notes for the last 30 days, but you can change the date range to filter the list as needed. Select Today, Yesterday, Last 7 Days, Last 30 Days, Last 180 Days, This Month (since the first day of the current month), or Custom Range (specify the Start Date and End Date, and then click, or tap, Done).
Select a patient.
On the right, the options for resuming the corresponding clinical note appear. Under Note in progress for [Patient Name], the procedures posted for the selected patient on the corresponding date appear for your reference. Also, any existing text that was entered for the note appears for your reference.
To resume responding to prompts, starting from the one that was being displayed when the progress was saved, click (or tap) Resume Note.
The Clinical Note dialogue box appears and displays the applicable prompt.
Finish responding to the prompts, and then click (or tap) Done.
In the Clinical Note dialogue box, do any of the following as needed: modify the assigned tooth numbers (Th), change the Provider; change the Date; select, or change the Additional Provider; and edit the Note text, and/or insert additional notes from Templates.
Note: The Sign as [provider name] check box is available only if a digital signature for the selected provider has been set up. Also, the Password box is available only if the Sign as [provider name] check box is selected.
Click (or tap) Save.
Repeat steps 3-8 as needed to resume and sign other clinical notes.
