Easiest way to carry-forward clinical notes

(Colin MacKenzie) #1

Can anyone tell me the easiest way to carry-forward a previously made clinical note when creating a new patient encounter? IOW’s, what is easiest way to copy the most recent prior note into a current note? It seems time consuming to have to re-create each section of a note with the typical contents specific to each patient each time when all that information was already created at the time of the previous visit.

Alternatively, does anyone have any recommendations for attachable software to do the same?

Thank you
