Steps

1. Find and open the patient's chart.

2. To access the Encounters list, do one of the following:

  • From the Start/Open menu, select Encounters.

    • From the Quick Menu, select Encounters.
      OR

    • From the Latest Encounters widget, select View All.

  • From the Summary view, click the arrow to the right of Encounters.

3. The list of encounters is displayed. Each row in the Encounters list represents a single encounter. Click a row to open that encounter, and then click Back to get back to the full list of encounters.

All available columns are listed below.
