If you are asked to transfer a patient’s notes, you can create a task to track this request.
The task will appear on Task Lists for the user – in the appointment book, the task manager and within the patient’s notes.
When the patient’s record has been transferred, the task will be “completed”.
Note: To learn more about adding and using task batches, visit the Tasks section of the MyPractice help manual.
