Telemedicine – AdvancedCQM – PI/MIPS – Reports – Prescriptions

Telemedicine (PM)

Require Providers to Admit Attendees (Security Enhancement)

To enhance the security in our Telemedicine feature, we have enabled a new setting in Zoom, the Waiting Room. This change requires the provider to Admit all attendees into the call. The admit process can be done directly after starting the session. If needed, the provider can also Remove attendees. This increases security and privacy against malicious attacks called Zoombombing. Prior to this enhancement, anyone in the telemedicine waiting room could automatically Join the meeting.

AdvancedCQM (PM/EHR)

Episode Count Tool Tip

We have added a tool tip for all episode-based measures (CMS 68, 132, 133, 146, 154, 157, 161, and 177) that, when you hover over the IPP, Denominator, Numerator, or Exception check boxes in the Patient List, displays how many times a patient was seen in the reporting period. Multiple episodes will increase the denominator, but not the numerator, which results in a discrepancy between the counts, but the measures are being reported correctly.

PI/MIPS (PM/EHR)

eCQM Measure Troubleshooting

We have updated the Troubleshooting sections on all 2020 eCQM measure help files to add detailed workflows to help you ensure each measure is reported correctly. They can also help you pinpoint issues if you suspect that your numbers for a measure might not be accurate.

These new additions include instructions for multiple workflow methods, step-by-step guides, important notes to be aware of, additional tips to prevent possible problems before they
arise, and much more.

Reports (PM)

Custom Visit Listing – Additional Filters and Columns

We have added new filter options for the Custom Visit Listing report:

  • Facility Selection
  • Report Format
    • Multi Line – Default format. Displays all signers, but does not allow data manipulation.
    • Single Line – Displays the first signer on the visit’s EHR note (version 2), and allows data manipulation after being generated.

As part of this enhancement, we have also added two additional columns:

  • Facility Name
  • Facility Code

Prescriptions (PM/EHR)

Confirm Prescriptions – Edit Unsigned Prescriptions

You can now edit unsigned prescriptions on the Confirm Prescriptions screen. Click the edit icon on a prescription to open the selected prescription in edit mode.

The following can be edited:

  • Prescription information.
  • The pharmacy the prescription is being sent to.

As part of this change, we have also added discontinued unit (potency/terminology codes) warnings on the Confirm Prescriptions screen and in edit mode to indicate if the units are incorrect for the medication. This update ensures you will get a warning for discontinued units on prescriptions that are quick renewed.

Edit a Prescription

You can edit a prescription on the Confirm Prescriptions screen.

View Discontinued Units (Potency/Terminology Codes) Warning

Medications with discontinued units display warnings on the Confirm Prescriptions screen and in edit mode.

  • On the Confirm Prescriptions screen, medications with discontinued units display a warning icon.
  • When you click the edit icon to open the medication in edit mode, medications with discontinued units display the unit outlined in red and a warning message displays the appropriate unit for the medication.

“If we are waiting for a delivery or in between surgeries, we can log in, check messages or patient information and send electronic prescriptions as needed. Mobility is a good thing, and certainly being able to coordinate care with our patients from multiple locations is definitely a plus.”

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
