"EMD Problem List" Solution
The Smart Problem List provides visualization of existing problems alongside potential new problems generated as clinical records are processed through the Smart Problem List engine. The engine contextually processes records to extract missed problems in the EMR. Overlooked problems are identified and automatically coded; while resolved and inactive problems are flagged to reduce problem list clutter. The result allows for efficient problem list management fully integrated in the EMR.
Smart Problem List Features
The EMD NLP engine contextually processes the note to extract potential new problems which can be compared to existing problems in the EMR. Extracted problems include conditions, clinical features, vital signs, procedures and imaging results; problems that can then be added to the existing list at the clinician’s discretion. The types of problems that are extracted can be customized according to user preference. The module recognizes problems that are related and organizes them into a collapsible hierarchy to reduce clutter, while allowing the clinician to fine-tune problems by selecting a narrower, more specific condition. Existing problems that have resolved are flagged appropriately. Other manually entered problems can be easily added as well. All new problems are automatically assigned corresponding codes (SNOMED and ICD).
