Save time with best practice embedded in your documentation
Progress Notes lets you quickly and easily document key patient information in a single note shared across your team.
Progress Notes™ helps your frontline clinical teams align their documentation with best practice in a standardized digital note shared across all team members.
Traditional patient documentation is widely recognized as a major contributor to clinician burnout that pulls attention away from patient care.
Progress Notes makes documenting and finding patient information easy, improves communication, and keeps you focused on your patient by:
- Embedding best-practice clinical guidance
- Eliminating “note bloat” with accurately recorded patient information in a concise, history-rich digital note
- Reducing incidents of missing information
- Increasing note clarity and making quick reads easier
Discover how standardized documentation can assist your practice and help enhance your overall quality of care.

Saves clinicians’ time
Progress Notes speeds up the documentation process by ensuring it’s always accurate and complete. All required information is embedded in a single patient note that’s up to 50 percent faster to complete and can improve clinician-patient attendance time by up to 25 percent.
Improved patient care
Progress Notes helps improve patient care by making complete, clear, and succinct documentation easily accessed across teams. This mitigates risk and facilitates collaboration as team members have a centralized and updated source of patient information. For patient discharge, Progress Notes creates a discharge summary with complete treatment information, streamlining the transition to community care and other vital supports.
Progress Notes simplifies billing and coding for administrators by automatically including required information in a standardized digital note format using embedded codes. This makes billing entry easier and eliminates time spent tracking down missing information.
Ensure best-practice COVID-19 response
Patients with severe COVID-19 cases may require hospital stays of 18 to 20 days or longer; documentation can become a burden for overextended healthcare teams. Progress Notes reduces this impact while assisting you in providing a standardized COVID-19 approach.
