If you have internal physicians, such as a Hospice Medical Director, other Physicians and Nurse Practitioners, signing orders that include the Care Plan, interim orders, IDT as well as Cert/Recert documents, you have an option available to that you can use to review and sign orders. After a Physician/Nurse Practitioner accesses the Careficient application, the individual can use this new option as follows: Go to Processes menu > Orders Sign option
Select an Agency from the dropdown list (defaults to all Agencies selected)
Search by Patient first or last name (listing defaults to all Patient's for the individual that signed in)
Change certification dates as necessary (defaults to 30 days prior to current date)
"Include Interim Orders" checkbox is now checked as the "default" (in addition to the Care Plan, this will show the Cert/Recert, IDT and other types of interim orders)
If a "saved" signature does not exist (you now have to create a signature in the format you want to use prior to applying your signature to orders). The "Apply Physician Signature" <icon-editpencil>xxx<icon-editpencil> icon is disabled (grayed out) until your signature is created.
<udl-orange>Save my Signature<udl-orange> link appears that lets you create and save your signature in the format you want to use to sign orders (i.e., digital imprint, sign the screen, upload your signature from a file). Click here to learn more about Signature Application
After you add/save your signature, the <udl-orange>Change my signature <udl-orange> link replaces the <udl-orange>Save my signature<udl-orange> link
And the "Apply Physician Signature" icon <icon-editpencil>xxx<icon-editpencil> is available for use (no longer "grayed out")
All approved orders requiring your signature display. You can view each individual order requiring signature by selecting the "Print" icon <icon-printer>xxx<icon-printer>.
You can sign each individual order by selecting the "Apply Physician Signature" icon <icon-editpencil>xxx<icon-editpencil>. After you apply your signature the order will no longer display in the listing of orders to sign.
This will automatically sign the document, remove it from the list and display the following message next to the Agency field at the top: "<color-green>Physician Signature applied successfully<color-green>"
Physician can review the status history as necessary by selecting the "Status history" icon <icon-dropdown>xxx<icon-dropdown> next to the status listed (Status column shows only Approved for orders that the physician can sign)
Hospice Physicians can select and sign multiple orders at a time. Physicians can use this feature by selecting the <udl-orange>Sign All <udl-orange> link
If any of these orders include the face-to-face visit date, physicians will have the ability to enter this date as well.
A pop-up displays showing all orders requiring signature; Cert/Recert documents will have a date field if it requires the face-to-face visit date. Check one, multiple or all orders that appear in the pop-up, enter the physician's face-to-face visit date as necessary and select the <btn> Save <btn> button. All orders you checked now have the physician's signature along with the face-to-face visit date, if required.
There are multiple reports that you can generate from the Orders To Sign" option. Once you have determined the settings that you want to export, select the <btnw> Export <btnw> button.
