We use “letters” for the vast majority of our clinical reports (assessment reports, progress reports, etc) but I am not satisfied with the fact that they remain editable after they have been sent. I would like the letters to either:
a) “Save as final” like the treatment notes, so they are more difficult to edit (and locked to a single author)
b) Be able to easily digitally sign the letter
This is based on advice I received from Speech Pathology Australia that we don’t necessarily need to sign a report if it is absolutely clear who wrote it (e.g. through individual sign-ins to cliniko). I’d say we don’t quite meet that standard yet, so long as the letters remain editable.
