Unformatted text preview: patient check-out time. I found a high correlation between the time a patient waited to checkout for those doctors who completed the encounter notes prior to the patient leaving as compared to those doctors who waited until the end of their shift. I then compared the lost revenue due to the creation of the note and compared it with the cost of hiring a transcriptionist to complete the notes for the doctors. When all was analyzed and presented it made better financial sense to drop the encounter note project and hire staff to perform transcription.
