Patient Education “I” Icon
To meet meaningful use or promoting interoperability requirements (formerly advancing care information) a practice needs to pay close attention to the Patient Education (i) Icon. The numerator is now looking at the number of patients in the denominator who were provided electronic access to patient-specific educational resources using clinically relevant information identified from CEHRT during the performance period. Below is how MicroMD defines this information:
- Clinically relevant patient education is available in the following encounter areas: assessment, medication, problem list and labs.
- You can also give patient education from within an encounter by clicking the administration tab in the encounter ribbon > patient education > select the appropriate educational material with the (i) icon.
- The education must be published via the patient portal, this is done from portal updates.
Example: In an encounter from the Assessment step, highlight the assessment > click the (i) icon > patient education > select the assessment that has the (i) icon next to it.
