Axxess Home Health now provides new occupational therapy documentation: the OT Treatment Note, the COTA Treatment Note and the OT Discipline Discharge.
The OT Treatment Note and COTA Treatment Note enable users to document occupational therapy sessions alongside the results of a previous session. The OT Discipline Discharge enables users to discharge a patient from occupational therapy services and automatically generates a discharge summary that organizations can edit and send to physicians through Orders Management. These notes automatically update with plan of care profiles, OASIS assessments and each other, enabling organizations to streamline occupational therapy documentation.
To schedule and complete these notes, organizations must activate them in Company Setup.
To activate the OT Treatment Note, COTA Treatment Note and OT Discipline Discharge, navigate to Company Setup under the Admin tab. On the Operations tab, navigate to the Status menu under Task Management and select Inactive to view all inactive tasks.
