Here are some of the main highlights in ChartMaker® Medical Suite 2016 (file version 6.2.6). To read a full list of enhancements, view the Release Notes.
Clinical: Reports > Meaningful Use > Dashboard
The Meaningful Use Dashboard has been updated with a Stage 3 2018 option in the Stage field, thereby allowing you to select and run queries specific to the changes reflected in this stage for 2018, and provide accurate statistics for applicable attestation requirements.
These changes do not require intervention on the user’s part in order for them to be displayed.
Clinical: Reports > MIPS Dashboard
The MIPS Dashboard has been updated to meet the new Advancing Care Information (ACI) performance requirements for 2018. The performance measures for ACI are dependent upon the dates configured for the Performance period in the MIPS Dashboard Configuration dialog. The MIPS Dashboard Configuration dialog has been updated so that you must enter a date range of 90 days up to one full year, in the Performance period fields, and the starting and ending year must be the same.
When the performance period is in 2018, upon accessing the Advancing Care Information dialog, the Base Score and Performance Score sections will display the applicable measures per 2018 requirements for ACI. The method of configuring and calculating the various sections in the Advancing Care Information dialog works in a similar manner as previous versions.
Upon upgrade, these changes will be available for those Configurations where the performance period is in 2018, as outlined above. You can then select the applicable options and calculate the measures in a similar manner as previous versions.
Clinical: Chart Notes
The Vital Signs Entry dialog has been updated so the Oxygen Saturation section now has an Oxygen Flow Rate drop-down, in the Additional Information column, that allows you to select the flow rate (0 – 11 L/min), and will then automatically calculate the Inhaled Oxygen Concentration (FIO2). Whenever a value is entered in the Oxygen Saturation field, the Oxygen Flow Rate will default to 0, and the FIO2 will be 21%. You can then modify this value as needed, and the FIO2 will recalculate. Whenever an Oxygen Flow Rate is configured, that value along with the FIO2 will be outputted to the note. Likewise, the History tab and any exported CDA files (Clinical Summary, Continuity of Care, Transition of Care, and Referral Notes) will be include the FIO2 as well as the applicable LOINC code.
