You can use Company Templates to customize the fields that appear on your note. You can remove any fields you don’t need, excluding general billing compliance fields like Date of Visit and Diagnosis.
Once a WebPT Template has been copied and customized, the finished version will appear in the Company Templates section. We recommend creating a Template for each note type and each discipline represented at your clinic. Remember, you can only have one Company Template for each note type and discipline. For example, you can create one Daily Note for PTs, one Daily Note for OTs, one Daily Note for SLPs, etc.
If you are in 2.0, click the Documentation drop-down and select SOAP 1.0 to access those records.
If the Daily Note has been finalized, you can add an Addendum and select the Do Not Bill checkbox in the Charge Summary. This will remove it from the Visit Count. If you have associated billing, you must finalize and rebill so that your billing system understands you are no longer billing the visit.
If you are documenting a Daily Note and realize it should be a Progress Note, click the Daily Note down arrow to Convert to Progress Note.
When documenting a Progress Note, you can also rename the individual note as needed.
You will be asked if the note is a result of direct patient interaction during a clinical encounter. To complete an Administrative Discharge, select No. Complete the Administrative Discharge to discharge the case. This will be a non-billable note.
After signing the note and providing a reason for the addendum, you can continue patient documentation with a Daily Note.
Click the Signed Discharge Summary drop-down and select Convert to Case Note.
After signing the note and providing a reason for the addendum, you can continue patient documentation with a Daily Note or Progress Note.
