- To allow creating PreOp Clinic Documents exclusively for documenting PreOp Clinic findings at an appointment before the DOS, clinicians can now select an Appointment in the Patient List and mark it as a PreOp Clinic. The PreOp Clinic can be signed and saved; AT will prompt clinicians to import the Clinic findings when starting a PreOp on the DOS (this is based on the Patient’s MRN)
- In order to support more pharmacy formularies and management systems, this release adds support for additional formulary configurations for Pharmacy Connect
- To improve the usability of the “Attachments” feature for Visits in the Patient List, the “Attachment” button will now be always accessible in the Patient List toolbar
- Minor UI Improvements and Other Fixes
To turn an appointment with no documents started already into a PreOp Clinic appointment, select the Appointment Row in the Patient List and then select the Document Status > New > PreOp Clinic
PreOp Clinics appointments can only have the PreOp Clinic created and signed, and additional files can be attached (from "Attachments"). They are clearly marked in the Patient List, and have only the PreOp Clinic document tracking checkbox.
To revert an appointment back to a regular appointment, open the PreOp Clinic document and select "Remove" in the Toolbar. This will change the appointment back.
To complete the PreOp Clinic, the user should sign the PreOp Clinic as normal. This document has a unique name and can be handled uniquely or held for interfaces.
When a patient with a prior, signed PreOp Clinic has a PreOp started on a normal Day of Service (DOS), Anesthesia Touch will prompt the clinician to import (or ignore) the data from the PreOp Clinic.
