March 3rd at 7:00 a.m. please key in the patient’s account number when you dictate. 

Do not enter Medical Record Number.  The system will only accept the account number. 


·         Account number entry ensures that transcribed reports will process to the correct patient visit in the medical record. 

·         Dictations will not be delayed for clerical corrections.

The account number is the 10 digit number which can be found on the patient’s label and/or top of the facesheet.    Below is an example of the location of the account number on forms in the medical record.

Meds Tracker upgrade to version 6.1 


Changes to expect:

  1. Discharge Diagnosis is REQUIRED. The system will not allow finalization if discharge diagnosis and related quality measures are missing. Even though Admission Diagnosis may be marked with a RED border on the discharge page, it is not required. ONLY the discharge page is required. 
  2. The Home Medication 'OVERRIDE TO PROCEED' notification has been enlarged to remind you that nursing has not yet reconciled Home Medications.
