Effective July 24, 2018, all ambulatory and inpatient therapy notes (PT/OT, Sports, Speech, Therapeutic Recreation) will be transitioned to CIS (PowerNote). Therapy plans of care requiring attending co-signature will no longer appear in 3M. Instead, they will be forwarded to the attending’s Message Center and immediately available in CIS (similar to CIS documentation workflow for co-signature of resident notes). Moving these notes out of 3M is a necessary step in our eventual transition to Epic. Anticipated gains include improved therapist documentation efficiency, and improved attending awareness of unsigned therapy notes prior to receiving a deficiency notice.
For those unfamiliar with Message Center, please refer to the job aid on CHILD. For questions, please contact either Brett Leggett, MD or the CIS training team.
