Medical Excuse Document
We would like to have a document in a document library that we manage that will allow us to fill out, save to a patient record, and print for them.
work / school note to be generated would help out.

Yes, this should be available. Also letters such as TB screening certificate, termination letter, general health certificate, letters to patients.
Dr Douglas Haas commented
Yes! I am writing out medical excuses for school or work all the time. Having the patient's name, encounter date, and option to choose diagnosis - then fill in form and print out at the end of a visit would be a great time saver AND keep that work note permanently in the electronic record.
I agree, this would be very helpful

Also able to embed info that an excuse slip was given in the SOAP note (in plan maybe) when done at the time of a visit.
this is a need in our practice as well - for school and/or work
We need a medical excuse document to be printed from PF.
AGREED, WOULD LIKE TO SEE ONE AVAILABLE

Yes, the ability to have these excuses saved to the pt charts would be very helpful. Thanks

yes, we need a way to keep track of the actual work/school excuse notes. We have been experiencing some forged clinic notes.
In the chart, if there was an ICON for Excuse notes
then you click on that it auto fills the date, pt date of birth, provider name and then the provider can write their note, print and sign and the note is attached to that visit.
I'm interested in this only if it ends up saving me time. My current workflow is to open a folder, open the excuse.doc file, print it, write in pt's name, DOB, and today's date, check a couple of boxes, sign, and hand it to the pt.
My second concern is that I use modified letterhead for the excuse notes so it's not immediately obvious that I'm a psych provider. I'd need the same feature in a note printed through PF. The school or workplace doesn't need to know whether the pt saw a cardiologist or primary care provider, and they surely don't need to know which visits are for mental health, so anything that indicates specialty would ideally be left out.
This would be very beneficial to our practice and I'm sure many more.
