Copy Previous Encounter

Is there any way to copy the previous encounter to a new encounter?

For acupuncture most of the treatments and notes are the same with some changes. This will save a lot of time. Some other EMR platforms I used in the past offer this functionality such as JaneApp and Eclipse.

Hello @acu-emr

As you might imagine, this question is about a v common issue and it has been asked many times in this forum.

Of course, if the question is asked with slightly different terms one will get more, or fewer, results and also probably different ones for a more comprehensive response.
Good luck with your research!

Thanks for the reply.
I did see those but was hoping if anyone had a solution since it was a few years ago.
I should’ve mentioned that in the post, that’s my error.

I look forward seeing the pull request develop!

What we’ve been doing as far as using the same information from the previous encounter was to enable “Default to previous value” in the LBF’s form options. It’s not a perfect solution but it does help to an extend with repetitive notes.
