COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Templates (EHR)
We have added new templates to capture patient symptoms for communicable diseases, including COVID-19. The templates are in the Family/Primary and Urgent Care specialty folders in the EHR Template Library.
Visit – Telemedicine Communicable Disease
This template is geared for assessing both respiratory and COVID-19 symptoms for use with our telemedicine module. Included on the template are time duration bookmarks which allows the system to calculate the total time spent with a telehealth patient. Using this time stamp, an appropriate charge can be selected using an E&M or telehealth charge code. Additional template fields include check boxes for the various lab tests related to communicable disease testing along with the ability to document the result.
Visit – Communicable Disease
This template allows the assessment, physical exam findings, diagnosis, and treatment plan for respiratory communicable diseases. Additional template fields includes check boxes for respiratory communicable lab tests and results along with check boxes for E&M service charges. There is also an intake tab that will auto-fill a patient’s responses to questions about their travel abroad, dates of travel, and any respiratory symptoms. Included are two word merge documents which can be printed out and given to patients to educate them about the COVID-19 virus and what to do if they are sick with the COVID-19 virus. Both of these word documents come from the CDC.
SN – Communicable Disease
This subnote can be dropped in an existing note to capture a patient’s responses to respiratory symptoms, including the COVID-19 virus.
PF – Communicable Disease
This patient form was developed to assess a patient’s reported respiratory symptoms, including the COVID-19 virus. It also includes questions on travel dates abroad and social history.
