Intake workflow in the Electronic Health Records (EHR) product is designed to speed and simplify the process of starting a patient visit. If you have a nurse or medical assistant taking the Vitals, History, and other initial details from patients before the physician starts the encounter - intake workflow is for you! Intake workflow can be configured by a Clinical Admin and applies to all encounters for the practice.
Configure intake workflow
Log into RXNT and click on ePrescribing or Electronic Health Record.
Click Utilities in the upper left.
In Clinical Admin Tools, select Intake Workflow Options. Note: You will only have access to Clinical Admin Tools if you are set up as a Clinical Administrator for your practice. If you should have this access, but do not have Clinical Admin Tools, have your Practice Administrator contact us to add this access to your RXNT account.
To turn on intake workflow, select the checkbox for Intake Workflow Enabled. To turn off this feature, deselect the checkbox.
Choose which plugins to include in intake workflow by selecting the checkbox to the left of the plugin. Unselected plugins will not be included.
Intake workflow options correspond to Smart Form plugins as outlined below:
- Allergies - Allergies plugin
- Medications - Current Medications plugin
- PFSH - Patient History plugins (eight individual plugins: Medical History, Surgery History, Hospitalization History, Implantable Device History, Allergy History, Medication History, Family History, Social History)
- Problems - Diagnosis plugin
- Vitals & Charting - Vitals plugin
Arrange the plugins in the appropriate order for your intake process by using the arrows to the right of the plugin or clicking the icon to the left of the checkbox and dragging the plugin into the desired order. This is the order that the plugins will be presented when an encounter is started.
Use intake workflow
Create a new patient encounter as normal from the Patient Dashboard or Today's Appointments. If the encounter template contains any of the plugins that have been enabled for intake workflow, those plugins will be presented in the order defined by intake workflow options. Enter and/or update the patient's information as relevant. Note: if the Smart Form does not include any intake plugins, the full encounter template will open immediately.
If more than one plugin is presented, click Next to proceed to the next plugin.
When intake is completed, click Save to proceed to the full encounter, or click Save & Home to save the intake information and close the encounter.
If the encounter is closed, the provider can access the encounter from the Patient Dashboard, Today's Appointments, or the Unsigned Encounters screen to complete the patient visit.
