Patient Handover

Each group can add a handover note for each patient on their list.  This handover note can be updated at any time, by any members of the group.  A patient will have one handover note that is shown to all groups. This ensures all teams have the most recently updated version and when a patient is moved between teams the handover will be moved with them. When you update a handover it will be updated for all the teams in the organisation.

The handover note will appear on the patient list and on the patient’s summary feed that contains all the conversations and alerts about them.
