A shareable set of clinical note templates is a set of master clinical note templates that you can manage separately from the set of clinical notes for your location (if your organization has only one location) or any of the locations in your organization (if your organization has multiple locations). You can copy any of a location's templates to your organization's shareable set. As needed, you can add, modify, and delete templates in your organization's shareable set. You can also distribute templates from your shareable set to other locations, so users have access to those templates while logged in to those locations.
You may want to restrict who has the "Manage Shareable Set" right to help prevent unwanted changes to these master templates.
When entering or editing a patient's clinical note while logged in to a given location, a person has access to only that location's clinical note templates and his or her own favorite clinical note templates.
