Policy Reminder for the Outpatient General Consent Document

As a reminder, the Outpatient General Consent for Treatment (GCT) document only needs to be collected once every twelve months.

For those in registration/access areas, you may have seen various warnings in Epic reminding you to collect this document for every visit. Due to system limitations, you will continue to see a warning that states “The Outpatient GCT document has not been collected. If you are certain the document has been collected in the last year, please bypass this warning.”

In order to confidentially determine that the GCT has been previously collected, please access previous patient's encounters on the documents table to validate the document’s received status.
