Chart Archiving Feature
The Chart Archiver is a tool that allows the user to archive a patient’s chart, removing it from the Chart Rack. This is useful for keeping the chart rack cleared of inactive charts, reducing the amount of time the user spends looking for the charts needed.
The user can also un-archive a chart at any time using the Chart Archiver, placing it back on the Chart Rack and making it available for use.
**A user must sign off all documents in a chart to be able to archive the chart. To check if the chart has any unsigned documents, go to Documents > Unsigned. From here, the provider can sign off any documents that need to be signed off.
