Implementation Notes:

Interest in patient provided data through forms completed previsit and available for use during the visit has been growing and exceeds simple registration information prior to the first visit. Meaningful use regulations call for implementation of the Continuity of Care Document (CCD as a means of capturing a wide range of patient information (demographics, insurance, problems, medications, allergies, immunizations, and vital signs prior to the first visit or following a referral, emergency department visit, or inpatient admission. Vendors should store and display these data elements and encourage practices to use them with their patients. Additional forms, both paper and electronic, are used to gather information from patients about specific problems. Standards-based methods for providing these forms will enable vendors to do it once and enable practices to select forms from online libraries and to develop their own reusable forms that use data-driven approaches. These standards are evolving and are also discussed under Req-2043 Specialized Scales and Scoring. In the absence of standards, vendors can capture and display these previsit forms by any method that enables the display of these forms at the time of the visit.
