I do not know why the ‘Clinical Notes’ list will not remove inactive items from the working dropdown. It has the feel to me of a situation where a code update in a previous version broke something that has not yet been corrected. As I write this the OEMR public demo is down so I can’t double check it there. Luckily the working list isn’t too long so shouldn’t get in the way too badly.
As far as the Discharge Summary goes, we have a situation where things are not always named what we expect.
I made a Discharge Note in an encounter. And remember you can always create one last encounter just to contain the discharge summary.
The Note appears in the encounter summary.
Then, to print out the report that would contain the Discharge Summary, you open the Patient Reports from the Dashboard menu
Check whatever information you want to include in the report, but be sure you select the encounter with the discharge summary in it (round rectangle below)
Click ‘Generate Report’ button in ‘Patient Report’ (arrow)
and see the D/C summary in the report. The whole text of the discharge summary will appear in the report.
As far as finding the Discharge Summaries that have been written, Report / Visits/ Encounters has a search filter for ‘Forms Esigned’ which should return a list of all the forms that have been e-signed.
This presumes that the therapist writing the Discharge Summary would e-sign the form, and/ or the encounter it’s in but that seems like a pretty reasonable expectation.
