Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) Functionality to Identify and Flag Patients with Complex Needs

Version 14 includes the ability for a practice site to identify and assign risk scores/labels based on a risk stratification methodology that meets CMS guidelines. Risk scores are associated with health concerns on the Health Concerns window in EMR. The practice can then identify and flag patients that have complex needs and/or require episodic, short term care management. Also, you can generate patient lists and reports based on these risk scores/labels.

Access the History Recorder within All Encounter Types

The History Recorder is now accessible within all encounter types (in the Encounter Builder, Encounter Wizard, Text Encounters and Form Encounters), without having to open a patient chart first or use the Encounter Wizard.
