Billing Batch Report Enhancement
The following enhancements/features have been added to the Billing Batch Report in the Report Center:
Accounts Receivable Roll Forward Report
The Patient Status column in the AR Roll Forward report now includes ALL patient statuses (Pending, Active, Discharge, Non-Admit & Blanks).
New Advanced Directives Comment Box
Other Advanced Directives, such as the DNR-CC, DNR-CCA, or POLST, in the OASIS or (Edit) Patient Profile can now be documented in the new editable Comment box, which is located under the Advanced Directives tab. This text data entered in the new Other Advanced Directive Comment box will populate in the Plan of Care (including print PDF).
When creating a new patient in AgencyCore, under the Demographics tab, the Track F2F Documentation request option is selected or checked as the default. If Face-to-Face documentation tracking is not needed, the user can simply deselect or uncheck this option.
Attending Physician Contacted for Care Plan Oversight
In the New Referral form, New Patient form, Edit Patient Profile or Re-Admit Patient, a new Tooltip is added to the “Attending Physician contacted and agreed to provide ongoing care (orders) for this patient” check box. The Tooltip will provide clarifications relating to the Referring, Certifying and Attending physicians.
The Plan of Care is now available to view from the Skilled Nurse Visit Note as soon as the OASIS is signed, even when it is in pending QA approval. This enhancement allows the clinicians to have a Plan of Care to follow without waiting on the QA process.
Note: Clinicians need to be aware of possible change(s) in the Plan of Care during the QA process.
