How to document in the correct encounter using Paragon 13.x

Documenting using physdocs on the wrong patient encounter will result in inaccurate documentation. Please make sure you document in the correct encounter.

Find the patient

Find your patient using the earch function in the upper right hand corner

Include all patients in the search

If the patient is discharged then make sure the “include active only” is unchecked.

Look for additional encounters

If your patient has additional encounters they will show up as “additional visits” in the lower right hand corner of the card.

Open list of encounters

Clicking on the “additional encounters” link will open all the additional encounters for that patient. Individual encounters can be opened by clicking on the patient name in the encounter.
