The "lock" feature on clinical progress notes. I have never used this before and am wondering the purpose of it? Is it for legal safe guarding? Thanks! Jayne W.

    Hi Jayne - Happy to clarify this for you! It's to sign your notes electronically. Some states require you to have a signed record of notes. It's a good idea to go back and sign your Progress Notes in case a client needs them for court, you get subpoenaed, or you get audited by an insurance payer.
