HMP Bulk Load, also known as HMP enrollment, is a new feature in v11

Reminders may be generated by the system through the HMP Bulk Enrollment feature by PhysAdmin. This tool allows immunization, medication, and order reminders with specific frequencies and end dates to be created for patients based upon age and gender and associate them with problems/ICD 9 Codes. The rule may specify that the patient receive this reminder with or without the problem as an active problem, resolved problem, or listed within family history. If an order reminder exists on a patient the HMP Bulk load will not remove or duplicate the order. However, the HMP enrollment may increase the frequency of the order reminder.
