What is a dot phrase?
AKA smart text, auto text, smart phrases, macros, templates. They are abbreviations or acronyms (usually they start with a "." [dot].) When typed in a note (i.e.: ".dm" for diabetes) they summon a pre-saved boilerplate template or text snippet that replaces the abbreviation and gets inserted in your progress note. This is an easy way to speed up medical documentation. They save users time by avoiding them to type repetitive text commonly used in charts. They are not only used to complete a SOAP notes, but also to document a procedure, write a patient letter, or even insert a short CPT code. They sometimes have a bad reputation of bloating the note with useless information. StatNote's dot phrases are concise and help capture only the essentials of the visit. They are dynamic and allow for the user to edit them "on the fly" to reflect accurate information.
What is StatNote?
StatNote is a library of dot phrases and medical templates created to expedite medical documentation. Primary care physicians in Family Medicine or Internal Medicine know that writing your progress note is time consuming and is the most common cause of physician burnout. Our dot phrases can be used through a text expander software in any computer or EMR. Since we have over 1,000 dot phrases, we published a book where you can familiarize with all of them.
Are there any legal risks associated with the use of these templates?
The main goal of your progress note should be to document your decision-making so that your work can be understood by others, including some one questioning your care in litigation years later. The second goal should be to support your level of coding and billing. Our templates have concise and relevant information regarding the different conditions being documented. You should always edit the templates in order to document accurately. For some complex patient presentations, it is better to dictate or write the old-fashioned way. Finally, you should always read your notes before you sign them.
