PCE Clinical Reports
The PCE Clinical Reports options provide clinicians and managers with summary data about their patients, workload activity, and encounter counts. The reports extract data from various files in VISTA, including laboratory, pharmacy, and PIMS to create output reports which have been requested by physicians throughout the VA.

The Caseload Profile by Clinic and Patient Activity by Clinic reports track Critical Lab Values and Emergency Room Visits (among other things). The PCE Report Parameter Edit option on the PCE HS/RPT Parameter menu allows your site to specify which clinics in the Hospital Location file (#44) represent "Emergency Room" clinics and what tests from the Laboratory Test file (#60) should be used for looking up patient data for Glucose, Cholesterol, LDL Cholesterol and HBA1C lab results. (This is necessary since the Laboratory Test File is not standardized and each site may have customized it differently.)
NOTE: If month or day aren't known, historical encounters will appear on encounter screens or reports with zeroes for the missing dates; for example, 01/00/95 or 00/00/94.
