That can't be true simply because there is no explicit way of "closing a 
consult". A consult is only
ever closed implicitely - by starting another one and considerung the new one 
the current one.

Chronicity defines consultations.

It is not disabled. As far as editing previously saved progress notes go, 
however, it is
simply not yet implemented :-)

This is possible today (and anything else would be stupid) -- but I believe you 
found out
how already.

It will not close the encounter. It cannot, because the encounter can well be 
carried on
by another provider. We have this every day. Patient comes in, sees doctor in 
exam room, is
transferred to monitoring unit for a while, sees radiology nurse for xray, back 
to monitoring,
sees doctor again, transferred to septic operating theater - all in the same 
encounter in the
course of, say, 3 hours. During normal office hours. Happened to me just a few 
hours ago.

It is a good idea to get a first, easy use case going for oneself. More complex 
ones will come
about anyways.
