Rolling Out The Continuous Care eNote


Only 9 out of 96 team members completed the AXXESS Continuous Care eNote Training Exercise in May.  (Yikes!)  That’s okay, we know it’s a big deal.  We are hoping to train as many of you in the field as we can, versus bringing everyone into the office.  So this is your big chance to get the training done without having to come into the office.  Please complete this training exercise by June 30th or we will have to schedule you to come to the office.

Introduction to the Continuous Care eFlowSheet in AXXESS – PART 1

Over the next two months, we will be rolling out a new electronic method of documentation for continuous care shift-nursing.  Learn our plan for how it will be rolled out, and how you will learn to use the new system of documentation.

Axxess Quality Assurance Process – PART 7
EXERCISE – Enter Three Continuous Care Notes in AXXESS

Now that you have watched the AXXESS training above, it’s your turn to give the new Continuous Care eNote a try.

1.     Login to Axxess

2.     Go to the week of May 13th in your schedule.

3.     You will find that you’ve been assigned care to a Test Patient on May 13, May 14, and May 15.

4.     Go ahead and open the scheduled task for the Test Patient and try out using the flowsheet

5.     Enter the information like you would enter it for the actual patient you are currently caring for

6.     Sign & finish the note

7.     Once you are complete, the note will be automatically submitted to Quality Assurance for review.

8.     If QA has feedback on your note, they will email/text you, asking you to log back into Axxess to make corrections to the note.

Additional notes might be assigned to you to help you in the learning process.


After you have successfully entered three notes, you will have achieved the initial goal of training on the Continuous Care eNote in AXXESS!!
