One click to add diagnosis to encounter

Instead of clicking on a diagnosis within an encounter and then checking the box "add to encounter," there should be a one-click option (i.e. check box next to diagnosis) in encounter flow to attach diagnosis.

    Hi Ariel - this is specific to adding a diagnosis from the "Diagnoses" section of an encounter, rather than straight from the Assessment. If you scroll up in the note to "Diagnoses" and click on any diagnosis, you'll see the checkbox to "Attach diagnosis to this encounter" located below the Diagnosis Comment box.

    Looks like this is "resolved" to me: I only have to click a diagnosis once in order to add it to the Assessment section of the SOAP note. There's no checkbox for "add to encounter." Am I missing something?

    It would also be great if there were a way to attach all diagnosis codes from a previous visit.

    Either entry of a new diagnosis/complaint or selection of a preexisting diagnosis in the Subjective section, followed by the appropriate text/template entry.
    Then, the diagnosis would be transferred automatically to the Assessment and Plan sections to minimize repeat entry.
