Quickly identify and manage CPC+ clinical quality measures with Elation’s document tags September 13, 2017
With the first CPC+ performance period now well underway, Elation is excited to bring our users weekly updates to help you save time, get the most out of using Elation for CPC+, provide better care for your patients and ultimately succeed in this program. Learn more about Elation and CPC+ here.
As many CPC+ physicians know, part of participating in CPC+ includes being able to balance meeting the measurements and providing exceptional care. Document tags within Elation’s Clinical First EHR make participating and caring for your patients more effortless
What are document tags?
Document tags are critical for logging the completion of eCQMs within Elation. You can tag reports and visit notes to not only categorize these items for future reference but also use them to track completion of screening and measure requirements.
We now make it easier for you to know which document tags qualify for measure completion by flagging the document tags with a gold “CPC+” flag! You’ll be able to distinguish which document tags are being used for quality programs from those used for internal tracking purposes.
How can you use Elation’s new CPC+ document tags?
Document tags can be added to a visit note by scrolling to the bottom and clicking on the +Tag link. Once the appropriate CPC+ – flagged tag is identified and added, the patient will then show as meeting the measure or qualifying for a measure exclusion.
You can also add document tags and flag completion of measures through the Health Maintenance section, or by adding document tags to reports.
A list of all of Elation’s document tags can be viewed here.
How can document tags help you succeed in CPC+?
Now that clinical quality measures are appropriately labeled within Elation, CPC+ physicians know exactly which tags count for meeting the program’s requirements. With greater visibility, physicians can address CPC+ measurements more readily and ultimately improve their performance!
