EHR Tip of the Week:





1.       Please remember to include the following information when you submit a helpdesk request to add location/providers:

a.       Location Name

b.      Provider Name (First and Last)

c.       Address

d.      Phone Number

e.      Fax Number

2.       Documentation of a patient’s Hysterectomy– This is important!

a.       Why? This is important for quality care because patients who have had a hysterectomy w/ removal of the cervix (and have no h/o abnormal Pap smears) would often unnecessarily be getting Pap smears done.  Testing in this population of patients is not needed.  This is also something that insurance payers are monitoring and if documentation is done incorrectly this can affect reimbursement.

b.      How do I document it? See attached.
