Most physician interactions with a chart occur patients are in the ER or hospitalized or in clinic. Training covers this well.
Sometimes prescribers may need to interact with the chart outside of a hospital admission or an emergency or clinic visit. One may want to place orders that anticipate a future interaction or document an interaction that occurs where Connect Care has not yet deployed.
There are virtual encounters (patient not physically in a Connect Care setting) that can help address these needs. Indeed, there are many “other” encounter types. “Documentation” and “Orders Only” encounters are useful for situations Connect Care physicians frequently confront.
