. In this demonstration, I'll be showing how to start a new encounter for walk-in patients.
If the patient is not actually coming for a scheduled appointment, there is another way to pull up from the Patient tab. Go into the Patient tab, which will give a Patient Search tab and an option to see patients below. Let's say for an example, I'm searching a patient with the last name Test. It gives me a list of all of the patients with the last name Test.
Like the Appointment tab, if I click on one of these, it will bring up the medical records for that particular patient. Let's say I'm going to click on Test Test. This opens the encounter for the respective patient, and the date of service will be today's date of service by default. Only the rendering provider will be automatically displayed. Select the needed template. Date of service can be changed before begin charting. Click on Begin Charting. By default, your chart will be saved as pending.
Typically, all the pended charts will be on the right corner under Pending Charts. You can organize this either by patient name or else date. Notes can be saved either as pending, full review, ready for exam, or else complete. All the incomplete charts are notes so they'll be either under pending category or else under full review, or ready for exam.
Detailed charting we'll be covering in the next videos. Thank you.
