To support continuity of care, certain summative notes are automatically sent to compatible external (community) electronic medical records (EMRs) where the authoring prescriber works in mixed-contexts. Auto-sending of Urgent Care/Emergency Department (ED) Provider’s Notes has contributed to increased information burdens for mixed context prescribers working at Urgent Care Centres.
After careful consideration, automated summative note routing is changed (12 July 2022) to exclude ED Provider Notes. Other summative notes will continue to be eDelivered to compatible EMRd of authoring providers.
This change could impact external billing workflows that leveraged auto delivery of the ED Provider Note. Recent Connect Care optimizations provide alternative workflows to support prescribers.
