Designed for rounding and charge capture, Patient Lists can be built in the EHR that capture specified hospital's census (ADT) lists and display a select group of patients that a provider can reference when conducting rounds.

Patient List Setup (TW v10)

Patient Lists are designed in TWAdmin under the Pt List VTB.

Patient lists are the product of filters. Based on a variety of different parameters, a Patient List can be developed that is customized to the needs of a doctor, practice, or medical team.

For example, if a practice with three providers (Bob, Don, & Ann) wanted to share a Patient List for Hospital ABC, they could set up the Patient List to filter based on the Location of Hospital ABC, the admitting provider, and Visit Status (Admitted, Transferred, etc.). Constructing the filters doesn't have to be complicated, but can become so when trying to design dynamic parameters.

Managing Patient Lists

Patient Lists can be created at the Enterprise, Organization, and User level. This allows the administrator to limit visibility of patient lists to only those users that need access. When a list is created Enterprise, it becomes available to all users when they try to 'Manage Lists'. When managing their lists, a user can see only the lists that his/her Org or User allows. They can then select the lists they will use and add them to their available Patient Lists.
