The Patient Encounter helps to code and complete an encounter visit.  The encounter note encompasses both narrative and comprehensive formats. It also allows you to customize the layout of the note.  The note is added to the patient chart.

Within the Risk Assessment List, you can choose common risk factors and use them in the care plans for your patients. This helps with using OP for Meaningful Use as well as with OP Care Plans.
