EXPAND APPOINTMENT - This action allows you to display all the patient demographics and appointment event log items that have been entered for a selected patient appointment. Expand Appointment displays information from the Scheduling package and not from PCE.
LIST BY ENCOUNTER - This action allows you to change the display from a list of appointments for this patient or clinic to a list of encounters for the same patient or clinic. There may be several encounters for one appointment.
LIST BY APPOINTMENT - This action allows you to change the display from a list of encounters for this patient or clinic to a list of appointments for the same patient or clinic. Not every appointment may have an encounter associated with it, so you can add encounters from this view.
MAKE HISTORICAL ENC - This action lets you add encounter information for an old encounter or one that took place at another hospital or clinic (VA or non-VA). Although you can't get workload credit for this kind of encounter, it can be used to help compute clinical reminders.
SELECT NEW PATIENT - This action allows you to change the display of encounters based on the patient. If you select a new patient, the display will include encounters or appointments for the selected patient.
UPDATE ENCOUNTER - This action lets you edit an encounter that is associated with an appointment. You may edit information such as provider, diagnosis, procedure, treatment, immunization, skin test, patient education, exams, and treatments, as well as date, service connection, and demographic data.
VIEW BY CLINIC - This action allows you to change the display of appointments or encounters based on a Clinic. For example, if your current list includes all appointments for a specified date range for the selected patient, and you want to display all appointments for a specific clinic, you may use this action to change the display to include appointments or encounters for the desired clinic.
QUIT - This action allows you to exit PCE and return to your menu.
NOTE: You can add Health Summary, Problem List, and Progress Notes as actions to the PCE screens, to enable you to go directly to these programs. See the PCE Installation Guide for instructions.
