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

Have questions?  Please call Cathy Hany, Director of HIM at x7762 or Janet Owens at x6533

 


 

C. Diff Burden in the U.S.

  • 453,000 new cases per year
  • 66% health care-associated
  • 24% with onset during hospitalization
  • 29,300 deaths per year (6.5% case fatality rate)

(NEJM 2015;372:825-834)


 NOTICE:

Meds Tracker upgrade to version 6.1 

 

Changes to expect:

  1. 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. 
  2. The Home Medication 'OVERRIDE TO PROCEED' notification has been enlarged to remind you that nursing has not yet reconciled Home Medications.

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
  • Information is NOT current
  • Resource Waste
  • Preparation for our future integrations with CPOE

How can I view my information?

  • All information is within the Portal system. If you need assistance with Portal, contact: Brenda Land - 402-5228; after hours: call HelpDesk at 402-5000

How can I get a printed copy?

REGULATORY CORNER

 

The CMS will no longer require INPATIENT "Certification" effective January 1, 2015. Therefore, effective 12/6/2014, "Certification" forms will not be placed on charts for completion.

 

A VALID INPATIENT ORDER, SIGNED BEFORE DISCHARGE, IS STILL REQUIRED

 

The requirements for "Certification" WILL REMAIN for outlier patients as defined below and a form may be developed in the future.

 

     42CFR 424.13 Requirements for inpatient services of hospitals

 

     Timing of certification and recertification:

     Certification is required no later than one day after the hospital reasonably assumes that the case meets cost outlier criteria or no later than 20 days into the hospital stay. Subsequent re-certifications are required at intervals not less frequently than every 30 days.

 

     Content of certification and recertification.

  1. Reasoning for continued hsopitalization of the patient for medical treatment or medically-required inpatient diagnostic study; or
  2. Reasoning for special or unusual services for cost outlier cases
  3. The estimated time the patient will need to remain in the hospital.
  4. The plans for post hospital care.

 

Please call Case Management if you have any questions @ 352-351-7208.
