After I attested for 2011 Meaningful Use, my group decided to have the doc decide on some of the ‘re-investments’ in our practice. The second thing I got was the WelchAllyn SpotVitals Lxi. (Bigger monitors for reception was first.) I had been interested in this for at least a couple years. A while back, I [...]

A few years ago the AAFP had an article, How Many Patients Can One Doctor Manage?. This report can be used for dicussions about relative panels in a practice. Which doctors have availability that matches up with their assigned panels? Who is over-paneled? Who is under-paneled? This crystal report for e-MDs has 4 different tables [...]
Bill Sweeney of Mid State Health wrote this report. This shows normal vs new patients per month. It also includes distinct patients in that time. Appointment Status by Month
Here’s another report by Bill Sweeney from Mid-State Health. Bill creates awesome flat file reports. This is just begging for some simple list work in Excel (See my Data-Driven Practice page). In my practice we didn’t fully realize how expiration dates worked. We used 1 year later — now patients portal is expiring. We need [...]
Thanks to Jeff Grabenstein, MD, of Family Doctors of Oak Ridge. He’s been exploring this lately and wrote this summary. Jeff’s Current Recommendation (Free): NetTime Daily frustration with access violations I have been a user of e-MDs solution series since 2000. Many years ago I learned that I needed to know as much about computer [...]
It’s been just over a year since I was appalled at the default Visit Summary. The original visit summary disengages a patient in her care. It sets up barriers like 3/4 of a page of junk before the actual content begins. So that night as a proof of concept, I cleaned up the Visit Summary. [...]
This is Chris Hunter’s Laboratory Template that includes links to appropriate flowsheets. Flowsheet links are ‘brittle’ so the exact wording matters. For my clinic the flowsheet links don’t work but it would be a starting point for making our own. Laboratory_Results
This template was created by Christine Hunter, PA-x. (x stands for extraordinary) This includes some billing codes (so you can get credit for reviewing and interpreting Vanderbilts, for example.) Psychological_Testing Template
Thanks to everyone who participated. I learned a lot about hosting a webex. The more I edited myself out of the podcast, the bettter it gets. Load in iTunes: There’s some sweet nuggets in here. So load it into your phone and listen during your commute.
The Medicare e-Rx code drove my practice crazy last year. We e-prescribe all the time and many of us successfully attested for Meaningful Use. But the e-prescribing rule doesn’t allow for tracking that way. Instead it requires a bonus g-code be submitted. Please, Medicare, stop the madness! Sara Evans rightly recognized this as a reporting [...]
Here’s a report by Bill Sweeney from Mid-State Health. It generates a nice flat file list of appointments that you can select by date. Includes check in time, date, check out time, and optionally who did the check in. I love ‘flat file’ reports like this — it allows you to do your own analysis [...]
Print this for yourself and your partners Download Handout: Proposed MU Stage 2 Benchmarks Made for printing double side. This was written initially by John Crankshaw as a forum post, then we collaborated to make it into a handout. Since these are ‘proposed’ guidelines, these are our interpretations.
I’ve wanted this for several years — I think it’ll improve flow, reduce disparities in vitals and reduce transcription errors on vitals. If we implement this right, we can even use it to improve the human-ness of our rooming. Keith Tom’s practice uses it and loves it. Here’s their quick video. By the way, Keith, [...]
Mercy Moore has made a Word Form to create a 2 column visit note for printing for PCPs (to make it look shorter/more manageable.) [Discussion on SupportCenter][https://supportcenter.e-mds.com/ics/forum/Client/Common/ContentView.aspx?contentID=110220]. Mercy says: I had to put my name on top as we are only a one provider officeand it would have added more clicks/steps to note creation. For [...]
