A patient note is a written or electronic record that contains important information about a patient’s medical history, examination findings, diagnoses, treatment plans, and other relevant clinical details. It is a documentation tool for healthcare professionals to track and communicate patient information, ensuring continuity of care, effective communication among healthcare providers, and a comprehensive record of the patient’s healthcare journey.
