An Episode of Care is defined as the set of services that are provided in order to treat a specific clinical classification or region of injury during a set period of time.
Patients that are receiving care at your clinic may have multiple regions of injury, therefore you will see different Episodes of Care within their patient profile. Episodes of Care can also be segmented by discipline (Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, etc.).
You are able to toggle through various Episodes of Care as seen on the patient profile below:
The most recently active Episode of Care will appear first, followed by the remaining episodes.
For each Episode of Care there will also be an associated Care Plan that contain activities such as questionnaires, exercises, and education.
