Description

The Encounter Status SSMT content category can be used to automate the build of the Encounter Status dictionary. The Encounter Status dictionary is one of two drop down boxes on the Clinical Toolbar and is displayed as Status on the Clinical Toolbar. It can be used to update the patient's current status most commonly within the context of an ambulatory encounter. The dictionary is typically manually managed, but can be managed via SSMT as well.
