Clinical Reminders on Health Summares furnish providers with timely information about their patients' health maintenance schedules.
Providers can work with their local ADP coordinators to set up customized schedules based on local and national guidelines for patient education, immunizations, and other procedures.
Options on the Clinical Reminder/Health Maintenance menu let you edit reminder and health maintenance definitions, based on your site's clinical terminology.
A complete reminder definition includes associated components such as examinations, taxonomies, and health factors. Sites may define their own components to use in reminder defintions. A site may also create routines for computed findings where necessary. This makes reminders completely customizable by sites.
Taxonomy entries define low and high range values from ICD Diagnosis, ICD Operation/Procedures, and CPT codes which are part of a clinical category (taxonomy).
To alter a VA- prefixed reminder item, first copy it to a different name and then edit the reminder to reflect your site's requirements for the reminder.
Once reminder criteria have been defined, they may be included in the Health Summary Type definitions for the Clinical Reminder and Health Maintenance components which will be displayed on Health Summaries.
