Flagging an encounter type ensures the encounter is being reported as a Transition of Care (TOC). If an encounter is pulled into context from an appointment that is flagged as a TOC,the encounter will also be marked as a TOC (the system defaults to the type of appointment made). However, flagging encounter types as a TOC ensures appropriate reporting when working in an encounter not tied to an appointment.

Note: Only encounter types created by the organization can be flagged as a TOC.

To Flag Encounter Type

  1. Log into TWAdmin
  2. Navigate to Dictionaries in the VTB
  3. Select Encounter Type from the picklist drop down
  4. In Detail 1 box check Transition of Care
