CS-Link Tip: Routing Charts to Colleagues

This week's CS-Link™ tip comes from Neil Goldberg, MD. The InBasket has many folders, and it can be difficult to know which folder has top priority.

When routing charts to colleagues for review, it is best to do so by using the Level of Service and Follow-Up section. When forwarded in this way, the chart is sent upon closing the section and placed it in the CC'd Chart folder of the receiving party's InBasket.

When a chart is routed from the Chart Review section, it is sent to the "Review Reports" folder, which is not widely accessed by physicians. We thank Dr. Goldberg for this tip.
