Custom clinical note types give providers the flexibility to document what and how they want to meet their specific needs. Once a custom note type is created, it can be shared with others in the practice. Custom note types can only be created by users with the System Admin or Provider role.

Note: Non-clinical note types (such as Memo to Record and Amendment) cannot be customized.
