ChartScript and ESA

When a patient care episode occurs, such as a hospital or clinic visit, the physician may dictate the patient’s progress note to document the care provided to the patient. The Transcription Services team (within HIMS) then has the responsibility for transcribing and typing out the progress note. The draft progress note is presented to the physician for review, editing (as needed) and, finally, a validation signature. This vital information becomes a component of the patient’s chart and the final legal medical documentation.
