Once a patient's Chronic Conditions are identified, users have the ability to add a ICD10 codes to the chosen conditions. ThoroughCare makes it easy to add and identify the correct code based on the condition.
Adding Conditions to Patient Chart:
Search for the patient in the dashboard by First Name, Last Name, or Patient EHR ID. Users may also create a new patient from the dashboard by clicking the "+ New Patient" button. For help on creating a new patient click here.
On the "Patient Search" results screen, find the target patient and select their name, EHR ID, or "View" button under the "Actions" column.
To add a new condition to a patient's chart, make sure the "Conditions" tab is selected then click "+ Add Condition".
Once clicked, a drop-down box will appear. Click this to scroll through the conditions list to find the condition that is to be added to the patient's chart. For this example we are selecting "Hypertension".
Note: ThoroughCare may not list the specific condition you may want to choose, in this case select an "Other Conditions" option.
Once the patient's condition is selected users may move onto specifying the ICD10 code. Click the "Diagnosis Code" drop-down box and begin typing the patient's corresponding ICD10 code. Users may notice that ThoroughCare will suggest popular codes such as i10 for Hypertension. Once an ICD10 code is clicked it will be added to the "Diagnosis Code" column.
Next, select the "Programs" drop-down box. Here, users will specify which program this condition is to managed under. For this example we will be choosing "CCM".
Note: If you have only one condition added to a patients chart you will see a orange notice appear above your entered condition. In order for a patient to participate in CCM they must have two qualifying conditions. This notice is letting you know that with only one condition the patient will be managed in regards to PCM (Principal Care Management) guidelines. You will need to add an additional condition to qualify for CCM. To learn more about PCM click here.
When all necessary conditions have been added, select the "Save" button in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
Viewing Patient Diagnosis History:
Notice that under the "Conditions" tab there is a "Manage Diagnosis History" button located below the conditions table.
When clicked a "Diagnosis History" pop-up will appear. Most likely, there are more conditions listed in this table than there are listed under the patient's "Conditions" tab referenced above.
Note: If a condition is out of date or previously deleted it will be shown in this pop-up.
If a conditions is not active anymore click the checkbox under the "Active" column to uncheck the target condition.
If a user needs to add an ICD10 code to the patient's diagnosis history, click the "Add ICD-10 Code" button.
the "Diagnosis History" pop-up will then change to a "Search for ICD-10 Code" drop-down bar. click this drop-down bar and begin typing to find the correct ICD10 code.
Whenever the correct code is selected click the "Save" button at the bottom of the pop-up.
