Preadmission Notes

Axxess Hospice now enables users to add preadmission notes to referrals. When a preadmission note is added to a referral, the note will flow from the referral to the patient’s chart, where users can review a historical list of preadmission notes entered. Users can also track preadmission notes by title, date and user.

To add a preadmission note to a referral, users must have permission to edit referrals in Axxess Hospice.

Referral Permissions

To give a user permission to edit referrals, edit the user’s profile and navigate to the Permissions tab. In the Administration section, select View and Edit next to the Referrals permission. Click Save to finish granting the permissions to the user.

Add/View Preadmission Notes in a Referral

To add preadmission notes to a referral or view existing preadmission notes, navigate to the Patients tab and select Referrals.

To open an existing referral, select the edit icon under Actions. Scroll toward the bottom of the referral to the Preadmission Notes section.

To add a new note, click Add Preadmission Note. Enter a title and the contents of the note, and click Save.

Once the note has been saved, the table will populate with the title, date and user.

Users can view, edit and delete preadmission notes using the icons under Actions.

View Preadmission Notes From the Referral List

When viewing the Referrals list, there is now a Notes option under Actions. Select Notes to open the referral and view or add preadmission notes.

View Preadmission Notes in a Patient Chart

A Preadmission Notes section now appears on the Referral Information tab in each patient’s profile. This section includes the table of previously added preadmission notes with the ability to view each note.

Users cannot add preadmission notes once the patient is no longer listed as a referral.
