Medication Reconciliation at
Admission
The new Med Rec at Admission, using the
Order Reconciliation Manager (Scale Icon)
was introduced hospital-wide in February.
Education material is located in the MD
lounge, or on SMH.com, Physician
Resources.
Medication Reconciliation at Discharge
Effective June 23, 2014, the process of completing a
Medication Reconciliation within SCM is continuing with the
addition of Medication Reconciliation at Discharge. You will
complete your discharge reconciliation via the “SCALE ICON”.
Medication Reconciliation at Discharge
If Med Rec @ DC has not been completed, a link will display
for the new DC Rec. If Med Rec has been completed the link
will appear greyed out.
Click on the Discharge(New) link to open the Discharge Rec
session.
Medication Reconciliation at Discharge
Med Rec @ DC indicates where a medication order came from.
Medications continued from Home will be listed with “Home” beside
them. If the Home Medication was reconciled on Admission and
continued you will see “Inpatient” next to the medication. You will
see both versions of the medication available to you at Discharge.
To continue a medication on discharge as a Home Medication, you
will click on the green arrow next to the medication (either Home or
Inpatient).
Medication Reconciliation at Discharge
Once selected via the green arrow, the Medication will be
added to the right pane as a Home Medication at Discharge.
Discharge Rx Writer
Within Med Rec @ DC, if you would like to create a printed prescription; you
would click the Rx button next to the med for which you wish to create a printed
prescription. Once you have selected the Rx option, the Modify Prescription
window will open to allow you to configure the prescription for that medication.
You would then check that all info is entered correctly, click done and the Modify
Prescription window will close.
Discharge Rx Writer
The medication will be added to the Home Medications at Discharge side with the
Rx icon showing that it is a Home Medication generated from a printed
prescription.
When satisfied with Home Medications at Discharge, you will need to “Mark All
Remaining as Reviewed” to reconcile all remaining medications.
Click the “Save as Complete” button at the bottom.
Discharge Rx Writer
You will then be taken to the Review Prescription screen where you can take one final look at the
medication prescriptions being printed. The selection for “Print” has been pre-selected. Select
the “Submit” button. Your prescription will then print to the default printer for your location.
Sign the prescription and give to patient as you would with a written prescription today.
The medications that were submitted as Home Medications during this Med Rec @ Discharge
session will be available in the Home Medications List during the patient’s next hospital
admission.
Discharge / Approved By Order
Effective 6/23, the Discharge / Approved By Order will be modified.
The following screen shot shows the modified order session:
Discharge / Approved By Order
Note that the new order session has two mandatory
fields, the Discharge to (no change from current order),
and Discharge Diagnosis (new field). Meaningful Use
requirements now make a Discharge Diagnosis
mandatory.
NOTE: The Discharge Diagnosis can be established from
this order session, or at any time through SCM using the
Health Issues icon.
Discharge / Approved By Order
Clicking on the Discharge Diagnosis button in your order
screen brings you directly to the following screen within
the SCM Health Issues Manager:
Discharge / Approved By Order
Quick Copy
If there is already a Working Diagnosis for your patient, and it will remain as
the Discharge Diagnosis, it can be copied by:
1) Select Discharge Dx from the drop down menu under Copy To
2) Right-click on the blue highlight bar and select Quick Copy
Discharge / Approved By Order
3) The Working Diagnosis is copied as the Discharge Diagnosis
4) Then select Save to Order
Discharge / Approved By Order
If you do not wish to copy an existing Working Diagnosis as your Discharge
Diagnosis, then:
1) Go to the bottom left of the screen, click on ‘Discharge Dx’, and then search for
the appropriate diagnosis. (Similar to ‘IMO’ in entering the Working DX). Use
the applicable shortcuts in the box, if not use the ‘Full Catalog Search’ tab.
2) Once the appropriate diagnosis is found, click the ‘Add’ button
Discharge / Approved By Order
3) This will establish the Discharge Diagnosis
4) Then click on ‘Save to Order’
This will add the selected Discharge Diagnosis to the order.
Discharge / Approved By Order
When you click on ‘OK’ to submit your order, the following Alert will fire so that a
detailed instruction note can be prepared:
While you have to respond to this alert, please note that this complicated process for meaningful use preparation of a
discharge note is automated and you will only have to click “save” and acknowledge the alert before submitting the order. See
below.
You must click on ‘Add Document’ to complete your Discharge order. You will be brought to the new, mandatory Discharge
Instructions note. This note will be placed on the Patient Portal.
Discharge / Approved By Order
After clicking on the ‘Add Document’ button, you’re brought to the following screen:
All fields required by Meaningful Use to create a minimum plan are pre-populated, therefore it’s only necessary to click ‘Save’
and all the pre-filled fields will become the Discharge Instructions note. You may add more detail or change the default
selections, however, because the Discharge Instructions note will be going to the Patient Portal. MD’s, PA’s and ARNP’s are
encouraged to fill out here what they have always filled out in the DC order previously. Once done click ‘Save’. The password
box should not come up.
This returns you to the alert. Acknowledge the alert and move on to submitting the order.
Discharge Instructions Note
Now the order is placed for Discharge, and the Discharge Instructions note is in the
Documents tab.
