Security- Encounter Type
This lesson will discuss security settings for the encounter type. This security privilege will allow a user to select whether the encounter is a Face to Face or Non Face to Face Encounter for the SOAPnote documentation to be applied. By default, the encounters will be flagged "Face to Face". This setting may be Role or User specific. This is a Meaningful Use Requirement.
Selecting Roles or Users
Encounter Type Selection
