You can support clinical learning inside the system by using the Validation feature. Validation allows certain people to approve the work of others before the work is considered correct and complete.
When a person requires validation, the work they do with a patient is tracked for approval. This information is summarized in a validation area for review. People with validation permissions can access this area in order to review and approve work.
People with validation permissions can also validate work directly from their mobile devices. Learners can present their work to a supervisor, who validates directly from their own mobile device instead of logging into the learner's computer.
