The clinical team has just finished working on a patient. Now they need to post the procedures and send the patient up front to check out. The routing panel is the quickest way to communicate between the clinical team and the front desk team. This tool gives you up-to-the second updates on what procedures have been posted and lets you quickly navigate to all the areas of Ascend needed for checkout. Additionally, the Exit Workflow feature helps make sure you schedule the next recare appointment, gather missing contact information, and collect a payment from the patient.
