Hiding Unanswered Questions in progress note
Answered

Lets say I create a custom progress note with 50 questions in it. Only 10 of those questions apply to this specific patient/encounter....so I fill out those 10 questions. It looks like the other 40 questions will still show up and say "no answer given".

 

Is there a way to prevent this? I only want the questions answered to show up once I sign/lock the progress note.

    Hi Brad,

    We don't currently have an option to remove the "No Answer Given" text when a text field in a note template is left blank. 

    If there are questions in a template you don't use, you can customize the template to remove the questions. This guide will walk you through that: My Notes and Forms: Creating customized client intake and progress note templates

    I've also emailed you directly in case you have any follow up questions. Otherwise, have a wonderful rest of your week.

    I usually will add an answer such as WNL (Within normal limits) or N/A or something similar. In our state there are regulations about blank space on reports where you put a large slash and "Left Blank On Purpose"... I've thought about adding a similar options when there are no appropriate answers.
