What’s the best way to enter conditions?
BestPlanPro has a couple built-in features to help make inputting conditions more accurate and efficient.
- Via Medications
- Via Conditions
If you decide to enter medications, we’d recommend waiting until after entering all medications to work on additional conditions, so that BPP’s patent-pending engine can determine dates and other implied information from the medications list.
We’d say the best way to enter conditions is enter all the medications first, review your asterisk conditions, then enter your non-medical conditions (like Felon, Wheelchair, etc).
Through Medications, you’ll fill out
Prescribed to Treat fields. The contents of those fields will appear in the Conditions/Events section. Anything you need to review will have an asterisk(
*). After entering all meds, click on each condition with an asterisk. Ensure that the most specific condition is listed and all the dates are correct.
Through Conditions, type the name of the condition you’re looking for. BPP will search its database to help you find the correct one. You can also override the software to enter in conditions that don’t appear in the software. After, make sure all the dates are correct.
Note: If you have conditions with asterisks, BPP will still analyze.
In BestPlanPro, when you enter a medication, you’ll also be asked to input for which use or treatment the medication is prescribed to treat.
What You Get.
After setting the condition, when you save the medication, it will automatically add the condition to the Condition/Events list.
Notice that there will be an asterisk(
*) by the newly autofilled condition so you can double check it for accuracy.
Best Plan Pro has several rules for when an asterisk can appear next to condition. The common thread is that if you should look at it, there will be an asterisk.
Once you’re ready to review asterisked conditions, the process is the same as if you entered the conditions using the Add button.
When you click on a condition, the Edit Condition window will open up and you can double check the information and make any necessary changes. You may see several results. BPP is searching for your condition. So, if you just enter the word
CANCER, it’s going to look for all conditions with the word
If you press the Add button in the top-right of the Conditions/Events area, you’ll get a similar window. Start typing the name of your condition and it will search for that condition and all conditions that contain that word (similar to this example with
If you need to make any changes, you can type in the Condition Name field to narrow down the results.
