If the doctor opens a chart note and the MA opens the same note, to put in the vitals, for example, then then whatever they do will not be saved. Either allow them to save it or restrict them from opening the same chart at the same time.

I would like to be able to document my nursing assessment and notes in the SOAP note without charting in the SOAP section or Chief Complaint section of the chart. Also, our providers order POCT and in-office injections that need to be documented somehow. Please make a section where we can document in-office procedures and injections.
It makes no sense that someone needs to be a nurse or higher to enter vitals? This function is often delegated to MA or others?
Yes, Please allow the assistant to add vitals AND save, while the doctor is on the note simultaneously.

This would be so useful in our practice.

The SOAP note needs to update in real time, so both my scribe and I can see what each other are typing and edit/add, and also add DX and Rx to the A and P sections. Right now I have ONLY my scribe writing in the note, and ONLY me adding to the PMH and the Dx and Rx lists in the left side column, and I have to close the chart for her to add what I've done to the SOAP note and we BOTH have to close for the front desk check out to see and print the plan. Why not have a CITRIX type function so everyone can work together?
