V15.1 summary of Potential Sensitive Health Conditions


Patient Profile Dialog.png

Patient Profile Dialog

Under the Clinical Information section, a new checkbox for Potentially Sensitive Health has been added to flag patient charts that might contain potentially sensitive health conditions. If checked, the Available Communities in the Community Information section are all are automatically set to Not Shared. These can be manually changed to Shared if the patient provided appropriate consent to the organization.

The checkbox can be manually checked (with Patient Profile-Edit security), or a nightly SQL job can run that will identify and flag the patients within the preference setting parameters that might contain sensitive health conditions++. It is important to remember that if the flag is ever removed manually, that patient will be excluded from the nightly SQL job to prevent automatic rechecking of the Potentially Sensitive Health checkbox.

++Currently, the SQL job only looks at the age ranges based on the preference settings, rather than the age ranges from the preferences in combination with a designated list of sensitive conditions. This may change in future releases.

The Potential Sensitive Health icon, (PSH Icon.png), will display on the Pt Banner, ACI, NAW, and the Print/Fax context menu.

Auditing

The Community Security Audit button under the Community Information section of the Patient Profile opens the Patient Community Audit Dialog, which displays key information related to any changes made to the patient’s community values. This also tracks changes made to the Potentially Sensitive Health checkbox.
