Dear All,

Please remember that you have 72 hours to "Complete and Electronically Sign" your emergency ultrasound studies on QPATH.  

The clock starts from the time the study is performed. Studies that you perform that lack completed documentation within 72 hours will not obtain credit. Remember that this is also a component of the ultrasound milestones, and if the number of documentation deficiencies grow you could be a risk to fail a milestone!

DFES can directly document the study as well which could in fact shut you out, so beat them to it.

If you wish to review how to "search QPATH" for studies you have please contact the section. You should probably check QPATH 3 times per week.
