For the 11.2 Upgrade, some Appointment Types may need to be flagged as Transition of Care (TOC). Transition of Care implies that a patient is moving from one provider or clinic to another within the organization (i.e. hematologist to oncologist). Meaningful Use requires EHRs to be able to provide summary information for transition of care referrals. Allscripts 11.2 enables appointment types and non-appointment encounters to be flagged as “Transition of Care” encounters. If an encounter is not flagged and needs to be this can be done form the Encounter Summary, Daily Schedule, or the Provider Schedule.

11.2 Build Task

  • Review Appointment Types and flag those appropriate as Transition of Care. This task can be done either manually for via SSMT.

Note: Remember to use the 80/20 rule. If the appointment type is a transition of care at least 80% of the time it should be flagged. Users can always override this flag.
