When creating a chart template, you can use Note, Drop Down, and/or Check Box items to manually enter codes into your chart entries.
If you were to use a Drop Down item, you could include your most popular codes as options within the drop down, and select the relevant code(s) when charting for your patient.
Similarly, if you were to use a check box item, you could include each of your most popular codes as check box options, and check off the relevant code(s) when charting for a patient.
Lastly, if you were to use a Note, you could simply type in the code(s) relevant to the patient’s visit.
