  • A SmartForm will appear to complete the documentation
  • Additional information about this form and the conditions that need to be reported to the health department can be found here.

Ambulatory: New MyChart Enc Button Added to Telephone Encounter Toolbar

  • From within a Telephone encounter, clinicians can use the MyChart Enc button to jump to a MyChart Message encounter to send patients questionnaires and attachments.
  • Click on the MyChart Enc button from the toolbar.
  • The Patient Message opens to add attachments and questionnaires.
  • Enter a message and attachments. When complete, click to send, and you will return to the Telephone Encounter.
