Patient is notified by doctor that they need to schedule an exam and call central scheduling themselves.
Patient walks into a facility and does a "walk-in" exam where the front desk schedules the exam for them. Clinical questions are answered.
Encounter types are entered.
HAR is created. 3. In all instances the following things are done: Order entry -- diagnosis entered on the Order from the provider
