Intro to Health Maintenance
*REQUIRED FOR MEANINGFUL USE (MU) OPTIONAL MENU SET (CHOOSE 5 OF 10) - PATIENT REMINDERS
Health Maintenance is designed to alert and keep track of Preventive health issues. The Health Maintenance section is used anytime you wish to add, edit or modify rules that belong to a single patient.
The format for health maintenance in v4 is completely different in 2008/2009/2010. The conversion can and does bring over the notes from each rule in v4 patient charts, but the conversion can't reformat the rules to go forward in the new version.
Prior to the conversion, create HM Reports to identify patients due for follow up for health maintenance in the future. Print this report and use it as a back-up reference to ensure issues have been addressed in the future.
We suggest, as patients arrive in the future, update the HM rules in each chart.
