Patagonia Health, an Electronic Health Record (EHR) focused in Public and Behavioral Health, is in the final stages of developing a COVID-19 Risk Assessment and Public Health Management Decision Making Tool. Public Health professionals are on the front lines of combating the growing COVID-19 pandemic. Local Public Health agencies are tasked with identifying cases of COVID-19 and working with government officials on how to advise the community on precautionary measures.
The risk assessment and decision-making tool in Patagonia Health works to automatically categorize an individual’s risk of infection. Similar to screening tools developed during previous public health emergencies, such as the Ebola outbreak, the COVID-19 Risk Assessment tool follows CDC guidelines exactly. The assessment will automatically open during the patient check-in process. The software will automatically categorize the patient’s risk level and save the results directly to the patient record.
Additionally, Patagonia Health is working with LabCorp to facilitate the distribution of COVID-19 test kits. Users who have the LabCorp bi-directional lab interface can order COVID-19 test kits directly through Patagonia Health EHR. COVID-19 ICD10 diagnostic and CPT codes are updated and available to users in the interface. The assessment tool will become available to all Patagonia Health EHR users, free of charge, by March 23, 2020.
