Adding clinical notes
Clinical notes are free-form notes that you can enter at any time during an exam. With a clinical note, you can enter notes for an exam that are not specific to a procedure. Once you move a clinical note to history, you cannot edit or delete it. However, you can add an addendum to a clinical note in history.

2. In the Chart toolbar, click Clinical Notes.

4. Type the note that you want to attach to this patient.
