Webcast Overview

This webcast will detail CareGuide functionality, configuration and maintenance within the Allscripts Enterprise EHR.


Question: Can Providers Create their own CareGuides?

Answer: The delivered CareGuides can be personalized, however a custom careguide cannot be created from scratch. There are 2 places providers can update their Personal Templates: Providers can save a CareGuide as a Personal Template from within the ACI. Providers can access their personal templates and make changes from within the Phys Admin workplace by clicking on “By Module” and then clicking on “Base”. The edits made to the CareGuide will only affect the provider’s Personal Templates NOT the Enterprise Templates. A provider’s personal templates can be edited support analysts through TWAdmin/CareGuide Admin/Personal.

Question: If a medication is discontinued, will it be automatically removed from our CareGuides?

Answer: No, this must be done manually and it is a recommended to have a practice in place for this scenario to notify providers and have them clean up any personal templates.

Question: Why is the activation date earlier than the release date?

Answer: The Enterprise Activation date is when the current Enterprise CareGuide was activated for the enterprise (or the organization). The release date is the date of the latest CareGuide release from Allscripts (indicating the latest updated date). The latest release of the CareGuide may not have been activated as Enterprise yet.

Question: Would it be possible to reimport a properly encoded html document?

Answer: There is the option to import an .xml file into the system as well.

Question: Is it possible to use a combination of standard with free text in the monograph?

Answer: Currently there isn’t a way to use the Q & A section along with the free text without simply adding the Q & A items your organization wants to the free text area along with the desired free text.

Question: Can you make separate careguides from a single delivered one to address diff specialties – like rash for FM would be diff from the one for dermatology?

Answer: You could make personal templates for the providers of each specialty and edit the CareGuides accordingly.

Question: How do quick sets affect the careguides?

Answer: Items selected from the CareGuides will populate the QuickSets, the same behavior as when “standard” orders are placed from the ACI.
