Online Training - Using Cerner PowerNote

PowerNote is an application within PowerChart where providers can create documents directly into the electronic medical record using an interactive template system. PowerNote templates are built and customized on-site by the Clinical Informatics team in conjunction with departmental faculty and staff. PowerNote eliminates the cost and turnaround time associated with traditional dictation and transcription, and puts the provider in direct control of the documentation process.
