Clinical (EHR) Release Notes January 25, 2018

In January 2018, your Kareo Clinical account will be upgraded to the latest version. 

Patient Facing Comment Field on All Labs

Providers now have the ability to provide patient facing comments on electronic labs and manual labs, as well as Imaging and Studies. Comments entered in this field become available in the Patient Portal to provide a patient friendly description of the result for the patient.

When recording results on labs, the provider can add one or more comments to the patient, and make the comments available for the patient once the results are signed off. Patient comments will be visible on printed results, and from the patient's portal.


New Direct Inbox Shortcut for Referrals

This new enhancement improves workflow and saves time by notifying the provider of incoming referrals/continuity of care documents (UpDox direct messages) directly on the Agenda. Direct Inbox notification count is listed under Outstanding Items on the right sidebar.

Incoming referral messages can also be found by hovering over the Clinical icon and clicking Clinical Tasks. The Tasks page opens. Then click on the Referral tab across the top. 

Note this only applies to customers who have signed up for UpDox direct messaging.


Clinical Quality Measures - QRDA Exports

2015 Certification requires the generation of QRDA I and QRDA III files based upon both an individual patient's record and compiled summary information. QRDA is a specifically formatted file that summarizes a provider quality measure. The only purpose of this file is for submission to CMS and is only applicable to providers attesting for MIPS.


Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the the EPCS Authentification Screen was not loading for Multiple Drugs. In this particular case, when the provider tried to e-prescribe Morphine 15mg Extended Release and they completed the new prescription form, once they clicked the "Send Now" button it did not redirect them to the EPCS authentication page. Instead the page would try to load and they would see a spining wheel in the lower right corner that would get stuck.
  • The following drugs were recently added to the Lexi Drug database:
    • Intrarosa 6.5 mg vaginal insert Prasterone 
    • Naldemedine 0.2 mg oral tablet Naldemedine Tosylate 
    • Mydayis all dosages Amphetamine-dextroamphetamine
