  • CDS Examples For diabetic patients, an alert which allows the physician to order a hemoglobin A1c test if there is no hemoglobin A1c result in the past six months. For a patient with a history of ischemic vascular disease without contraindications for aspirin use, and who does not have aspirin on his medication list, an alert which asks the provider if the patient is currently taking aspirin and if not, allows the provider to order it. For women age 40-69 with no mammogram in the past year, an alert and/or an order set to facilitate ordering of this diagnostic study. 1. A best practice alert (BPA), triggered by evidence-based practice guidelines, alerting physicians that a pneumoccocal vaccination is recommended for their patients. [Note, Institute for Family Health, 2006 HIMSS Davies Public Health Award winner demonstrated an 18-fold increase in the rate of pneumococcal vaccines, and a BPA for at-risk diabetic patients resulted in a 55% increase in the rates of referrals for ophthalmology appointments. Visit www.himss.org/content/files/davies/2007/ph/InstituteFamilyHealth.pdf for additional information.] 2. For diabetes patients – alert, when the patient arrives in the office, if the most recent HbA1c > 9.0% − in a timely way to facilitate patient education and intervention. 3. For CHF patients, alert if LVEF <40% AND no documentation of ARB or ACE in active med list and facilitates the ordering of it or the documentation of why it is not on the list. 4. In an office visit, when the reason for visit is depression, it makes available a depression diagnosis guideline and a PHQ-9. 5. For diabetes patients – alert if no LDL has been drawn in past 6 months; and if one has been drawn, alert if LDL > 100 mg/dl and facilitating the ordering of the lab. 6. For patients with CAD – alert if no anti-platelet therapy in active medication list. 7. For patients 18 and older – alert if have NOT received smoking cessation counseling. 8. For adults – automatic calculation of BMI – and if it is outside or range, alert reminding clinician to arrange for follow-up. 9. For patients with A Fib as diagnosis – alert if warfarin is NOT on active medication list and that there is no contraindication. 10. For children – alert reminding clinician of immunizations that are due at that visit. 11. A template that is loaded for patients with cardiovascular disease that guides the provider to order aspirin – if no contraindications to aspirin exist. 12. If a patient is being seen by a provider for depression, a depression management guideline, PHQ-9, and/or management guidance can be provided as components of templates/forms or order sets that are triggered by the patient’s diagnosis. http://www.himss.org/content/files/CDS_MU_FAQ.pdf
  • If the EP's certified EHR technology cannot populate all of these fields, then at a minimum the EP must provide in a clinical summary the data elements for which all EHR technology is certified for the purposes of this program (according to §170.304(h)): o Problem List o Diagnostic Test Results o Medication List o Medication Allergy List
