Some progress notes can be very long and include a lot of questions or fields. The progress note summary can help you highlight certain answers or sections in the Progress Notes panel and when the completed note is first opened.
A progress note summary is displayed when you look at a completed progress note that has been configured to only show the answers to specific questions in the Progress Notes panel and when it is first opened.
For example, a screening exam progress note could be configured to only show "positive" answers in the summary so a clinician could quickly scroll through multiple notes without seeing empty fields.
The full progress note details are still accessible from the summary. If a note was not configured to display a summary, then you will always see the full details in the panel and when opening the note for the first time.
