PATIENT TRACKING FORM




IMPORTANT TIP: 
When using or monitoring the LIVE ACTION LOG screen, it is VERY important to click the "Show all messages for this topic" link at the top of the screen every 2 or 3 minutes. This will immediately update the log and bring up everyone else's messages. This log does NOT update itself automatically like many chat rooms. If you don't click this link, you may miss out on important information!


Contact Command Center if additional clerical staff is needed to process Patient Tracking Forms. 

 REMEMBER: THESE FORMS MUST BE SUBMITTED IN ADDITION TO ANY ROUTINE INFO ENTERED INTO MEDITECH. Do not enter patient info onto LIVE ACTION LOG page.
