Infectious Disease Profile/COVID-19 Screening


The Infectious Disease Profile in Axxess Hospice tracks infectious diseases and screening tools used to detect them.


This feature streamlines operations by enabling agencies to manage all aspects of infectious disease monitoring in a central location, and facilitates compliance with infection control and emergency preparedness planning requirements.

Access the Infectious Disease Profile


Users can access the Infectious Disease Profile for employees in the Infectious Disease Profile tab of user profiles.


To access an employee’s Infectious Disease Profile:


People tab ➜ People Center ➜ Edit ➜ Infectious Disease Profile tab



Users can access the Infectious Disease Profile for patients in the Patients tab drop-down menu and the Actions menu in patient charts.


To access a patient’s Infectious Disease Profile:
