You can enter the specific fields and click CALCULATE button and it will calculate the average time card for a specific encounter(s). It also gives other totals/averages for dictations and signatures related to the visit type(s) you selected.
- Date Range: You must enter at least an end date range date. If you want an entire history date range (not a specific date or week, etc), then simply leave the first date blank and make the end date today (now) date. It will give you results for the entire date history in your system.
- If you wish a specific date range, you must type in a Start and End date in the fields. Leaving both Start and End date fields blank will not give you any results. You must have a range or at least an end date.
The system will then display the Average Timecard specific to the data you entered into the fields. The statistics on this report involve how long the encounters where open, how long it took for the dictations to be completed after they were created on the encounter, and how long did it take for the doctor to sign the transcribed document after the nurse uploaded the dictation transcription.
