Cut and paste

I would like to know what other hospitals are doing with cutting and pasting from your E-record. I have had a number of requests from care coordination to cut and paste parts of the record for insurance approval. I would appreciate hearing from others on this topic.

  • Case Management asked if they could cut and paste from the her to send out information for referrals. We decided that if the information was complete and signed, that they could do this. The caveat was that they could not cut and paste pieces of a report. They had to cut and paste they whole thing, such as an H&P.
