HEY, DOCS !!!
We have some new tips for making the most of your Physician Portal. We are going to be in the Doctor's Lounge Tuesday and Wednesday, March 24th and 25th from 6:30 am to 12:00 Noon. Spare a few minutes and stop and see us for a short demonstration.
NEW DICTATION INSTRUCTION
NEW DICTATION INSTRUCTIONS ****** EFFECTIVE MARCH 3rd at 7:00 a.m.
March 3rd at 7:00 a.m. please key in the patient’s account number when you dictate.
Do not enter Medical Record Number. The system will only accept the account number.
WHY THE CHANGE?
· Account number entry ensures that transcribed reports will process to the correct patient visit in the medical record.
· Dictations will not be delayed for clerical corrections.
The account number is the 10 digit number which can be found on the patient’s label and/or top of the facesheet. Below is an example of the location of the account number on forms in the medical record.
Patient label/sticker (bottom right corner) on forms
Account number is highlighted in yellow. This is the number to key in for dictation.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO GIVE THE PATIENT’S NAME WHEN DICTATING
New dictation cards will be distributed with this information starting Monday, March 2nd

Changes to expect:
Discharge Diagnosis is REQUIRED. The system will not allow finalization if discharge diagnosis and related quality measures are missing. Even though Admission Diagnosis may be marked with a RED border on the discharge page, it is not required. ONLY the discharge page is required.
The Home Medication 'OVERRIDE TO PROCEED' notification has been enlarged to remind you that nursing has not yet reconciled Home Medications.
Please visit the eCafe to refresh.
AUTOMATIC Printing of Physician Rounding Reports will STOP
Why are we stopping?
We have received complaints from nursing staff and providers that there is only a small percentage of providers using these forms
