Paperless Clinic Notes
Children's National has gone paperless with clinic notes. This affects how you receive information about patient visits to our clinics. You will receive clinic notes electronically via fax transmission or through Direct Messaging.
If you are not sure whether your practice is using Direct Messaging and want to confirm or sign up, or if you are using it but have questions or concerns please email Direct Messaging.
Patients/families will still have access to notes via the patient portal.
The physician liaison team is available to assist you as we convert to a paperless process. Please contact your physician liaison with questions, concerns or troubleshooting advice. Thank you for your partnership.
