Auto-Save Chart Note on Auto-Lock

I understand the security issue that mandates an auto lock out. It seems an "auto-save" feature would be helpful when the screen auto-locks so we don't forget to save each time.

We are happy to report that as of Q4 2015, chart notes are auto-saving every minute, so this idea is Resolved.

Thanks for your patience as we worked through the most stable way to accomplish this.

    Also needs an autosave setting for every minute!
    Thanks for working on this.

    Currently, if I enter a portion of the note, then proceed to examine the patient and the note times out, all my entry is lost. This also occurs if I forget to hit "save" and look at labs.

    When entering data or creating templates the program automatically locks without any indication. The process causes complete loss of data because it is not automatically saved, as other cloud services do. At least provide a warning so users may indicate they are still using the system. Otherwise, 'free' online service is a cost in administration costs redoing work.
