It will be great if somebody could answer this from their experience. Thank you!
When the encounter is over youll leave the room asap and then go to your computer and enter your badge number then start your patient note. If you finish your interview and physical exam early you can leave and just get straight to typing. When the timer says this patient encounter is over, just continue to type since you left the room early. hope this helps!
