Allscripts Clinical Note
Version 1 was released in the Spring of 2014 and could be considered the next step between a V10 note and a V11 note. Significant features of Allscripts Clinical Note (ACN) include:
- The ability to free text in any note section. Consideration should be given to how much AND what is acceptable/not acceptable, particularly as it relates to Meaningful Use requirements.
- The ability to edit/view text templates from within the note authoring workspace
- The ability to use macros
Note that ACN uses the SAME text templates and Medcin templates (M-Templates) as V10 notes so any changes to either will impact both note types. ACN document types do however have their own manifestation of "Allscripts Clinical".
Some benefits of using ACN:
- Use for specialties who are macro heavy (e.g. Genetics)
- Use for anyone still on V10 who is not yet ready to move to the highly structured V11 note
