Q. How does PCE collect and report on diagnosis and procedures that are checked off on the DIAGNOSIS and CPT PROCEDURE tool kit boxes on Encounter Forms?
A:Items that are checked off in the above mentioned tool kit boxes are validated and stored by PCE into PCE files and then shared with other subscribing packages such as Scheduling.
Two PCE Health Summary Components display diagnosis and procedure information: Outpatient Diagnosis and Outpatient Encounter.
The Outpatient Diagnosis Component displays: the date of the encounter, the facility, the hospital location, the encounter eligibility, the provider(s), the diagnoses, ICD9 or ICD10 code, ICD9 or ICD10 text and Provider Narrative.
The Outpatient Encounter component displays all the information included in the Outpatient Diagnosis component plus the procedure(s), CPT code, short description and Provider Narrative.
If an immunization or skin test is collected by PCE through any of the four data collection interfaces PCE supports, data is stored in the procedure file and the Immunization or Skin Test file. Immunization or Skin Test information is included in the Outpatient Encounter component displays.
In addition, there are separate PCE Skin Test and Immunization components which only display information specific to Skin Tests and Immunizations. The Immunization component displays immunization, series, date, facility, and reaction. The Skin Test component displays skin test, reading, results, reading date, facility.
If you want to display Patient Education, treatments, examinations, and health factor information using the PCE Health Summary components, check the specific EF tool kit boxes. Otherwise that information is to be entered manually either through AICS manual data entry or PCE manual data entry.
PCE also exports six clinical reports. Two of those reports display diagnosis data related to the numbers of patients associated with the identified diagnoses: Caseload Profile by Clinic and Diagnosis Ranked by Frequency.
