Additional Encounter Types

Most surgeons will see patients in multiple hospitals in the ER on the floor or in the Operating room. When need to have a way to capture and add the documentation to our EMR both for billing and for documentation purposes. Currently the encounter type is limited to office.

Can you please provide additional encounter types: ER consultation, operating room procedure

    need to add the ability to customize/add encounter type - similar to customizing NOTE TYPE- specifically ER VISIT, HOSPITAL VISIT etc

  • nicole commented  · 

    Yes it would be nice to be able to customize the encounter types for ex: PCP office visit, Specialist follow-up visit, Consult, etc. It's difficult to determine if we are the PCP or specialist for the patient unless we open another encounter and read the doctor's notes, especially for are new staff that don't know the patient's yet.

    Why not allow practices to customize Encounter Types (like you do with Note Type), so we can add any encounters that are relevant to our practice. Thank you.

    I would like to see an "Admin" encounter type so we could properly document non-provider encounters in the chart.

  • Theresa Kinsella commented  · 

    We need a specific "Encounter type" - PASC/Ambulatory Surgery Center
    This is a must to add as it cuts down on time looking for specific encounter types. I spent over 20 minutes looking through visit's trying to find the patient's EGD. This is all we need to simplify the time spent looking for certain kind of visits.

    Please add option for assisted living encounters as soon as you can...currently we must select from "nursing home" or "home", neither of which is correct when seeing patients in assisted living facilities. Thanks very much

  • Mrs Sharon Blue commented  · 

    Please consider adding additional encounter type options such as assisted living facility or group home to the drop down menu. This would allow the superbill and the chart note to match. Thanks.

    As a surgery office We need Encounters to say Surgical and Inpatient Hospital

  • John Sparzo commented  · 

    We do need hospital admission as a choice. Thanks

    need to be able to enter a custom encounter type; or add other types like assisted living, hospital, or other.

  • Anonymous commented  · 

    I do procedures in the office and in the hospital. Ideally we should be able to make a custom encounter type. I scan my hospital operative reports into the patient's chart but they have to go in as office. This is incorrect and makes it difficult to find when scanning the patients summary.

  • Piyush Patel commented  · 

    What about Assisted Living Facility Note?

  • CDW commented  · 

    Really need Assisted Living and Hospital as options for Encounter Type

  • Dr David Cobasko commented  · 

    Really need to be able to add custom encounter types. I do EMG testing as a service to other MDs, with testing alone and nothing else that would typically comprise an office encounter. So among others, I'd like a "Nerve Testing" encounter. Thank you.

    create encounter and chart note types/styles for physical therapists and other non-physician clinicians like occupational, speech and respiratory therapy, medical social workers, dieticians, etc

  • Michael Zevitz commented  · 

    I would like an encounter type such as Assisted Living

  • Ms Denise Bahadar commented  · 

    I would like an encounter type such as "chart update" so that I can add updates that do not require an in-person encounter.

  • Patrice commented  · 

    We are a small inpatient psychiatric facility that offers both inpatient and outpatient services. The ability to an option to select inpatient or even other in the encounters list could provide clinic and inpatient providers with a valuable tool because all of the other components exist in the EHR

  • Kirti Patel commented  · 

    please add hospital visit, as a type in encounter types, it will help with billing with billing partners.

  • Dr Carlos Perez Benitez commented  · 

    To be able to move around the order of types of encounters. The orange tab in the top right. i created my own, and would like to be the default is the soap but i do not use this
