How do Clinical Reminders and Health Summary packages use

the data?

Reminder items are added to health summary selection components for a given health summary type. When the health summary type is run, the Clinical Reminders software evaluates the patient’s data and returns the results to the health summary for display.

Health Summary Reminder Components

Clinical Reminder: an abbreviated component indicating only what is due now.

Name of reminder

Date last done

Date next due

The clinical reminder displays on the health summary as follows:

ReminderNextLast Done

Mammogram10/1/9810/1/96

Pap SmearDue NowUnknown

Diabetic Eye Exam10/1/9810/1/97

Clinical Maintenance: this component provides:

1.   Details about what was found from searching the VISTA clinical data.

2.   Text related to the findings found or not found (as defined in the

reminder). This includes taxonomies (ICD or CPT codes), health factors,

and test results related to the reminder and computed findings (e.g., Body

Mass Index).

3.   Final frequency and age range used for the reminder.

The advantage of clinical maintenance over clinical reminders is that it

includes related test results, health factors, and logic related to that

reminder.

Example of clinical maintenance as displayed on a health summary:

ReminderNextLast Done

Hemoglobin A1C11/1/9711/1/96

11/1/96 - Problem Diagnosis: 250-Diabetes

HbA1C required yearly for diabetic patients

11/1/96 Lab procedure: HbA1C; results 9.6%

Final frequency and age range used: 1 year for diabetic patients
