Rehab administrators answer questions regarding documentation transparency. IPRC archives information collected by the Pediatric Rehab Administrator’s ListServ as a public service to the entire Pediatric Rehabilitation Community. All information is posted in summary format and has been de-identified. Search through past queries for responses to rehabilitation related questions.
Currently, our therapy notes are not automatically shared with families through our EMR/EPIC. Families can request copies through our Health Information Management Department.

2. Has this caused any challenges/issues? And if so, what types?
3. Did your therapists change anything with their documentation practices as a result of auto sharing?
