Writing Clinical Notes

It is recommended to create Clinical Templates suitable for the different Consultation and Classes type to save valuable time, each time. For more details on creating Clinical Note Template, click here.

Writing Clinical Notes for a Consultation

To write a Clinical Note for a Consultation or a Class, it is highly recommended to access the Clinical Notes section from the booking in the Diary so it is automatically linked to the appropriate Booking and Case.

1. Click on the booking in the Diary and click Clinical Notes at the top of the appointment window.

2. Select a Template.

3. Fill the different fields of the Template with the relevant information.

4. Use the different tools to draw or write on the Chart as relevant.

If a different chart is required, simply click on the chart icon in the top-right corner to select a different chart available in the account.

5. Once finished, click Finalise.

Once Finalised, a Clinical Note can’t be edited so consider using the Save Draft option if the note is not complete so it is possible to come back later and add more information before finalising it.

The Note will then be displayed in the History on the right-hand side along with previous notes where they are no longer active and cannot be edited.

To confirm the Clinical Note is linked to the appointment, the Appointment type will be displayed under the Provider’s name.

In the Diary, the appointment field will display the Clinical Note icon so it’s easy to know which ones are outstanding.

If the appointment doesn’t display the Clinical Notes icon, it is not linked to the appointment. See Accessing and Managing Clinical Notes for more details on linking the Clinial Note to the appointment.

Writing Clinical Notes for a Class

1. In the Diary, click on the Class and select a single Client.

2. Click Clinical Notes on the right-hand side menu.

3. Select a Template.

4. Fill the different fields of the Template with the relevant information.

6. Once finished, click Finalise.

Once Finalised, a Clinical Note can’t be edited so consider using the Save Draft option if the note is not complete so it is possible to come back later and add more information before finalising it.

The Note will then be displayed in the History on the right-hand side along with previous notes where they are no longer active and cannot be edited.

To confirm the Clinical Note is linked to the Class, the Class type will be displayed under the Provider’s name.

In the Class details page, the Clinical Note icon will be displayed next to the Client name so it’s easy to know which ones are outstanding.

If the appointment doesn’t display the Clinical Notes icon, it is not linked to the Class. See Accessing and Managing Clinical Notes for more details on linking the Clinial Note to the Class.

Writing a Similar Note
