Encounter Documentation

Clinical encounters occur in both inpatient and outpatient settings and are reflected in the Connect Care clinical information system (CIS) as a package of information related to a specific visit, admission or intervention. "Opening" and "Closing" these encounters affects the encounter properties, which, in turn, affects what other Connect Care users can see or do.

The healthcare prescriber designated as the responsible prescriber for an encounter is accountable for signing encounter content and closing the encounter event.
