ChARM EHR Workflow :
For Patients with PHR:
Once the encounter is signed, Clinical Summary is automatically shared to Patient Portal. Hence if the patient has a PHR account, this measure is automatically satisfied once you sign the chart.
For Patients without PHR:
For patients without PHR account, follow either one of the steps below at the end of each consultation.
If patient declined to receive clinical summary, update that under Encounter > Meaningful Use Measures section for excluding that office visit from MU calculation.
