Prescriptions created in either the ePrescribing module of the PM, or the New Rx tab in the EHR, that require a Supervising Provider signature will now include the following details for the supervising provider:
• NPI number
• Phone number
Supervising provider details are displayed under the signature line on a printed prescription and are included in the electronic file when sending a prescription electronically.
Meaningful Use Modified Stage 2 (PM/EHR)
We have updated the Meaningful Use Modified Stage 2 help files to include the latest information about measures, alternatives, exclusions, calculations, data definitions, and workflow.
Patient portal account holders can now select to view forms for any patient associated to their patient portal account. Now when an account holder uses their patient portal credentials to log in, and their portal account has multiple patients with assigned forms, the account holder can select which patient’s forms to view.
AdvancedPatient Patient Forms (PM)
You can now print a blank copy of a patient check-in form directly from the Patient Forms Preview screen. This is helpful when a patient does not have access to the patient portal and needs to manually complete a check-in form while in your office.
CMN Forms (PM)
We have added a new CMN form, CMN Form # 846 – Pneumatic Compression Device Form (DME 04.04B), to the PM.
Mobile App (Mobile)
We have added the ability to edit charge slips from the charge slip screen in the mobile app. You can still also edit charge slips from the edit screen.
As part of this update, we have changed some of the tools for editing charge slips to make them easier to use:
• Adding units
• Adding modifiers
• Copying procedure codes
• Deleting diagnosis codes
We have also added the ability to select a POS (Place of Service) on both the main charge slip screen and the Edit screen.
We have added a 2016 option in the Reporting Year field in the NQF Quality Measures and NQF Quality Measures Detail reports to make it easier for you to run the report for the 2016 reporting year. You can now filter the reports for 2016, and the Low and High Date fields will automatically update for the 2016 reporting year. The default year is 2016.
System Defaults (PM)
To accommodate an upcoming release, we have added a new Transaction Entry system default, Use OpenEdge Payment Processor. When set to Yes, your system will use the new EMV® (chip-enabled) functionality when processing credit card payments.
AdvancedPatient Forms (PM)
We have enhanced the Patient Forms Template Designer by adding a new Library feature where you can view and import patient and consent forms. Patient and consent forms are listed under the new AdvancedPatient® Forms specialty filter in the library.
We have also streamlined the saved templates list to show only patient form templates.
Template Library (EHR)
We have added a new Selected Specialty filter, AdvancedPatient Forms, to the Template Library. The AdvancedPatient Forms option displays patient and consent forms that can be assigned to patients in the AdvancedPatient Patient Forms tool.
We are excited to announce that EPCS-approved providers can now send prescriptions for controlled substances electronically to EPCS-enabled pharmacies.
