ST Treatment Note and Discipline Discharge


Axxess Home Health now provides new speech therapy documentation: the ST Treatment Note and the ST Discipline Discharge.


The ST Treatment Note enables users to document speech therapy sessions alongside the results of a previous session. The ST Discipline Discharge enables users to discharge a patient from speech therapy services and automatically generates a discharge summary that organizations can edit and send to physicians through Orders Management. Both notes automatically update with plan of care profiles, OASIS assessments and each other, enabling organizations to streamline speech therapy documentation.


To schedule and complete these notes, organizations must activate them in Company Setup.
