The Health Management Plan or HMP offers a singular location within the application to track patient testing and procedures in order to alert the provider when these items are due, near due or overdue. The HMP is a workspace that includes all the patient’s active problems along with Active orders, Results, Medications and Reminders linked to the problem. Providers have the ability to View the “whole picture” very quickly along with the ability to take actions on problems and associated clinical items.

Question: Providers have been turned off from HMP due to it being so overwhelming... Is there a way so that the HMP only displays chronic problems?

Answer: You are able to modify the type of problem to display by selecting the "Problem Type" option. If you then collapse the display, you can see problems are grouped as acute or chronic. There isn't any way to only show chronic problems. However, there are two preferences that might be helpful as well. The defaults for the Problem/Problem Type View - Default Acute Problems to Expanded could be set to "Never" and the Problem/Problem Type View - Default Chronic Problems to Expanded to "Always" to help streamline the providers workflow.

Question: Can reminders be sent to the patient portal just like appointments?

Answer: The reminder action will be controlled by the patients preferred method of communication selection.
