Webinar: Streamlining Clinical Workflow

We showed our customers tools in the EHR that will improve the functionality and streamline multiple processes with the use of automation to help your practice offer patients the best possible healthcare experience. 

This includes creating "order sets" to make an order entry convenient and
efficient, "copy visit forward" which allows you to pull historical data into a new exam- helping you to avoid selecting every element within that new exam (this saves you time with recording patient information!!), the "plan macro" tool which tracks the most frequently used treatment plans for particular diagnosis that can be applied to different patients,  and more! 

For Direct Messaging, FHIR API, and Bank of America Credit Card Processing, please contact our sales department at Sales@criterions.com

2021 Evaluation and Management (E/M) Code Changes

2021 Evaluation and Management (E/M) Code Changes

CMS has made changes to how Evaluation and Management Codes will be calculated beginning Jan 1, 2021. E/M codes will now have the option to ignore History (HPI, ROS, History) and Exam as part of the visit calculation. This shift allows providers to focus more on pertinent clinical documentation and less on data entry. In place of the data requirements from the past, E/M 2021 focusses on Medical Decision Making and Time Spent. This means there are no changes required for templates in 2021 E/M coding.

Criterions EHR will be Updated to Accommodate E/M 2021 Changes

For 2021, the Criterions EHR is updating the Medical Decision Making calculation to the 2021 standard as well as providing options to select how much time was spent during the visit. The E/M page for Medicare patients will be redesigned to allow providers to use the various methods of calculation.

Enabling these options will be available in the Practice Defaults, allowing for activating the 2021 E/M calculation for Medicare only, or switch to all carriers as others accept the changing rules.

More information regarding E/M 2021 can be found from CMS here.
