Productivity Woes or " ain't got time for that!"


Again, more research. Just curious for those using Allscripts software how long it takes for you to do a SOC, the whole shebang- visit and documentation. For me it is generally an hour to an hour and a half visit and 2 to 2 1/2 hour documenting. Do all of you have to chart to a care plan daily or is that optional. We have to do a huge physical assessment, then chart to every item on our care plan, then do a clinical note, the clinical note being the most valuable piece of documentation for your colleagues. I wish there could be a straight answer re what Medicare requires, not just opinions.
