EMR & EDR Element - Problem List

Diagnoses codes within the Problem List Element can be sorted with the Active or All toggle. Select Active to display only those labelled as Active. Select All to display all problem lists records in the box, regardless of whether they are Inactive or Resolved.

If the patient does not have any problems, select the No Problems checkbox. If there are no changes to the patient's problem list, select the No Changes checkbox to add the information as it appears to the patient narrative.
Within the Patient Form, click the small plus button to add a new problem list record for the patient. In the resulting popover, search for and select the diagnosis.

Next, add the diagnosis attributes, such as the Onset Date, Diagnosed Date, Type, CQM Value, Status, and any additional notes. If the diagnosis's status is set to Resolved, you may also add a date to the Resolved Date field. Enable the Use in Procedures checkbox to add the diagnosis to the patient's billing procedures and problem list in Patients > Clinical > Problem List. Click the Done button to add the new problem list record.

Problem List Reconciliation

The Problem List Element can be used to perform a Problem List Reconciliation. Click the Reconcile menu and select the Add New List for Reconciliation menu item.
In the resulting window, select the radio button to add a new list of problems from the Patient or Referral. Where Referral is selected, set the Referral Source menu to None, an Existing Referral, or select to Add New Referral Record.
If Add New Referral is selected, select the Referrer from the list within References > Referrer, or click the plus button to add a new Referrer.
With the list source selected, click the plus button to search for and select the diagnosis and complete the diagnosis attributes as usual (See Problem List Element for instructions.) Once finished, click the Next button.
The resulting window displays the each problem list diagnosis for the patient. The icons denote which problems were already on file for the patient and which problems were added during the current reconciliation. Disable the checkbox for any problem to set it as Inactive. Enable only the problems to keep on the patient's record, then click the Next button.
As a final review, confirm the problem list reconciliation in the resulting window. Click the Next button to dismiss the Problem List Reconciliation window.
