About Encounter Types

According to GE: “An encounter type is a collection of items that make it easy to start a chart update. When you select an encounter type, you automatically select an appropriate document type, encounter forms, and/or note templates for a particular type of patient encounter such an a comprehensive office visit. You can also set up a default summary for an Encounter Type.”

Please note that if an encounter type is not selected during a chart update, the default Office Visit document type will be used—this default document type is blank.

When you create a Phone Note or Rx Refill using their respective buttons, you are creating an encounter type of the Phone Note type and Rx Refill type respectively.

To select a specific encounter type use the Update button and select from the encounter type list. You can also use the Append button followed by the Click Here to do a Full Update button.
