    • Admissions and Discharges are Start and End Dates of Episodes (Programs / Level of Care / Transfers)
  • For Bed Tracking, BestNotes Support can help add text to Episode Locations for two scenarios:
    • Each Location is a bed:
  1. Each Location would have the name of the Location then the Bed designation (e.g. Location1MaleBed1 or L1MB1)
  2. After each client has their Location selected in their Episode tab, go to Reports
  3. Run the P - Census Summary report
  4. A user can see what is available during a Date Range and even when a bed may open by their Episode End Date or (Estimated End Date)




    • Instead of having a Location for every bed, your company could simply request to add the number of beds to the end of a location and a user can run the report to gauge if there is an opening
      • e.g. if there are only 5 beds, quick math can tell a user how many are open (the following picture shows N. Wing has 3 openings)
