About Patient Chart: General Notes

Path: Clinical tab > Patient Chart button > General Notes
Path: Practice Management tab > Patient Chart button > General Notes
Path: Billing tab > Patient Chart button > General Notes

The Patient Chart is the central point of access to all areas of a patient's complete Medical record.  Use the Patient Chart to access and maintain patient records.  

The General Notes window displays a list of General Notes, which you can use to enter any notes that you want to keep on record with the patient.


Note:  Just like a paper chart, the Office Practicum chart, and other windows in Office Practicum, contain personal health information that should be kept confidential. You should treat all windows in Office Practicum (like F8 Chart) just like you would treat a paper record of patient health information, never leaving that record out in the open for others to see. More specifically, you should always close all windows on your screen and log out of Office Practicum when you are done at your workstation.
