A medical note, or electronic medical note, contains all relavent, free form information as it pertains to an encounter between a medical provider and patient.

The Note module of TouchWorks Version 11 replaces the note definitions of Version 10 with note templates. The appropriate sections, text templates, note forms, lists and results can be configured to automatically populate the note based on how the note template is configured. Note functionality is managed from the Note Admin workspace.
