How do I open an episode for a patient?

In WriteUpp, the opening and closing of episodes is automatically taken care of for you. When you register a new patient, you will see their details appear in grey when they are the Active Patient, indicating there are no open episodes:

When you go to create an assessment, note, attachment or document for a patient, you will see this changes to orange. This indicates that the episode has been opened for you:

To close an episode for a patient, you should discharge them. When a patient is discharged, you will see their details turn black, which indicates the episode is closed. This will remain closed until you create another note, assessment or document for the patient, at which point another episode will be created for you and their details will turn orange:

If you wish to view the details of each episode, go to the Patient Summary and click on the Episodes tab. Here you will be able to see the status of each episode along with its date of creation, creator and the date of discharge if closed.  You can also rename the episode title and add a description if you like.
