Patient Management Overview
This section contains the list and details of all Patients, as well as the Physicians and any other possible accessioners/submitters in your practice. It can actually be a database of any entities you would like to have in the LIS (e.g. suppliers, etc.).
To Add a New Patient or Physician
- NOTE: A "Parent Entity" could be a primary facility or hospital, for instance, where the patient is receiving treatment.
If the entity is other than a Patient, the insurance frames do not display.
- NOTE: Patient or other entity information could be automatically taken directly from your EMR/EHR if a HealthCloudPOL integration exists.
Additional information may now be added in the same way, by clicking on the appropriate buttons to display their frames. The buttons toggle between Show and Hide.
Add individuals related to the main Entity.
If the person you want to associate with the main entity is already in the system, you don't have to enter them into the system again. Just click on the link beside "Choose From Existing Person:"
Show Entity (Child)
You can add '"child" or "sub-entities" to the main Entity by using the Child Entity frame. For instance, if a main entity is a facility, a child entity may be the main contact there, or a physician, etc.
You can add additional roles to the main Entity by selecting them here.
Show Address, Show Files
You can also add additional addresses and/or upload files to associate with the main Entity using those frames. Click Show Address or Show Files to display those frames, then add information or upload files as desired.
- The Upload Files frame is usually labeled the same as in the Order screen, Requisition form. It may be used to upload any types of files.
