A provider whose profile has been set to "Needs to be Cosigned" will have the option to designate a cosigner during the finalization service of an encounter. (This setting must be enabled by an administrator--please see the article "Set Up a Provider to Request Cosigner for Encounter Notes" for more details.)
If the provider's profile has been properly enabled, the following screen will be presented to the provider during the finalization process. NOTE: If the provider's profile has not been enabled with "Needs to be Cosigned," the option shown in the red box below will not appear.
If the provider would like to have these encounter notes cosigned, check the box. A search field marked "Provider" will appear. Begin typing the name of the designated cosigner and choose the provider from the search results.
Complete other information in the finalization service, such as Status, Fax info, etc. Click on the Finalize button to complete the finalization process. A summary of the encounter will be sent to the designated cosigning provider to be reviewed and cosigned.
