This report may be set up for hospital location or stop code. The report format is a summary of all selected locations. For each location, Scheduling data is used to identify patients whose appointments were either scheduled, unscheduled, cancelled, or are no-shows during the patient appointment date range. VISTA data for these patients is then examined for possible patient activities for admissions/discharges, emergency room encounters, and critical lab values during the patient activity date range. If any of these activities has occurred, data specific to the activity is reported along with the patient's address, phone, and future appointments that fall in the future appointment date range.
This report was developed as a measure of continuity of care. If a provider of record has his or her care-giving interrupted through clinical rotation, leave, reassignment, or for any other reason, this report may be used to get an update on patient activities in his/her caseload.
This report is also useful when care is not interrupted. Clinical staff may wish to review patient activity by clinic for events, which they might be unaware of.
Patient activities that are included in this report are:
All admissions and discharges within the selected date range are reported. If corresponding discharges exist for admissions, the discharges are shown, and vice versa; corresponding admissions are shown for discharges.
Emergency Room Clinic activities:
All Emergency Room stops within the selected date range are reported. Emergency Room visit date and time are displayed for all encounters with an identified Emergency Room stop. Emergency rooms are identified through the PCE PARAMETERS file. This data is entered by the clinical coordinator or IRM staff through the PCE Report Parameter Setup option.
Critical Lab Values:
All critical lab values reported within the selected date range are presented, along with a column to identify whether the value is critically high or critically low.
