The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) include the practice of giving a clinical summary to patients after each office visit as an element of Meaningful Use of an electronic health record (EHR) Stage One.
Alternatively, after you open a patient chart (or phone note, portal message, or other message protocol), select “Patient Visit Summary” from the Reports menu. Before you generate the report, you can select the visit encounter (if other than today) and optionally change what information will appear on the report output.
Display ICD-10 for Referral or Lab Requisitions: Some practices use the Patient Visit Summary to help communicate about an order. For example, you might use it as a lab requisition form.
Section Content 1. ID Patient name, visit date, encounter provider, PCP 2. Provider comments 1. Here’s what you have 2. Here’s what it means 3. Here’s what you do 3. Vital signs for visit 1. BP & Pulse 2. Weight and BMI 4. Encounter diagnoses 1. Reason for visit: chief complaint 2. Diagnoses corresponding to the issues addressed 3.
CMS has defined the clinical summary as “an after-visit summary (AVS) that provides a patient with relevant and actionable information and instructions containing the patient name, provider’s office contact information, date and location of visit, an updated medication list, updated vitals, reason(s) for visit, procedures and other instructions based on clinical discussions that took place during the office visit, any updates to a problem list, immunizations or medications administered during visit, summary of topics covered/considered during visit, time and location of next appointment/testing if scheduled, or a recommended appointment time if not scheduled, list of other appointments and tests that the patient needs to schedule with contact information, recommended patient decision aids, laboratory and other diagnostic test orders, test/laboratory results (if received before 24 hours after visit), and symptoms.”
The pre-visit summary should be designed with sufficient patient input to assure that a person with a sixth-grade reading level will understand what the report shows and what the patient is supposed to do with it.
The office visit choreography described here is designed to assure that the AVS is accurate and complete at the end of the visit by engaging patients in their care, empowering support staff to be active members in the care team, and leveraging the technology. The few additional tasks that are performed by the provider must add clear real value for the patient. The visit framework shown in Figure 6 on page 17 can be used regardless of whether the purpose of the encounter is to make a diagnosis or to manage a condition for which the diagnosis is known (Christiansen, 2008).
While rooming the patient, the CA enters the vital signs that will be included in the AVS. The CA then reviews the pre-visit summary with the patient. The steps in this process are as follows:
The complexity of clinical practice has increased dramatically in recent years, with patients having more chronic illnesses, taking more medications, and requiring more information for providers to make informed clinical decisions. As a result, there is a current trend supported by the medical homes literature, toward healthcare staff working in more complex teams that, in addition to the provider and one or more CAs, may include a registered nurse, a dietician or a pharmacist (Coleman, 2010). Regardless of the team configuration it is essential that everyone on the team, including the member who rooms the patient and obtains basic information before the provider sees the patient be working at the top of his or her licensure.
Like the huddle, a pre-visit summary is not a requirement for meaningful use of an EHR. However, the accuracy of information obtained from patients is time limited and must be updated by the clinical team if it is to be accurate enough to use in clinical decision-making and included in the clinical visit summary. The pre-visit summary is an efficient way to 1) engage and activate patients in thinking about specific details of their health information, 2) ensure accurate current information by showing the patient the EHR record of recommended health maintenance issues and have the patient identify gaps, and 3) reduce the time required to update patient charts prior to their seeing the provider (Beard 2012, Keshavjee 2008, Krist 2011).
38. From the following table, write a SQL query to find those patients who had at least two appointments where the nurse who prepped the appointment was a registered nurse and the physician who has carried out primary care. Return Patient name as “Patient”, Physician name as “Primary Physician”, and Nurse Name as “Nurse”.
