Clinical Instructions

Ensure patients aged 50-75 are screened for colorectal cancer. Use the Past Procedures section of the encounter to record a previous Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT), Flexible Sigmoidoscopy, Colonoscopy Screening, FIT-DNA, or CT Colonography; otherwise, use the Visit Orders section of the encounter to order/perform one of the recognized procedures at the time of the encounter.

  • While documenting the Visit encounter, either record the previous procedure or the receipt of the colorectal screening, or order and perform the screening, as appropriate:
    • Option 1: Document in the Past Procedures section
      • Open the Past Procedures section.
      • Using the Procedure autocomplete, begin typing the name of the diagnostic procedure (e.g., Colonoscopy) with the appropriate Concept ID.
      • Add the Date and any relevant Notes.
      • Click the Next button, or close the section.
    • Option 2: Document in the Preventive Care section 
      • Open the Preventive Care section.
      • Provide the date of the last reported procedure in the Enter New Date field (e.g., 01-17-2019). This date is the Last Reported Date.
      • Click the Next button, or close the section.
    • Option 3: Document in the Tests and Procedures section IF performing the screening in-house
      • Open the Tests and Procedures section.
      • Using the autocomplete, begin typing the appropriate procedure name.
      • Click the Add to Exam button.
      • After adding the new section, open the procedure section and add any results or findings.
      • Click the Next button, or close the section.
  • Continue documenting the encounter, as needed.
  • When completed, Close and Archive the encounter.
  • Option 4: Scan/Index or Upload an accepted screening document
    • Using WebScan, scan and index the appropriate document type configured with the necessary LOIN-C.
      • Scan/Index or Upload the Colonoscopy Screening document type (COLON) configured with the necessary Concept ID (73761001).
      • Scan/Index or Upload the Fecal Occult Blood Test document type (FOBT) configured with the necessary LOIN-C (2335-8); otherwise, add the FOBT observation and ensure it is configured with the 2335-8 LOIN-C.
      • Scan/Index or Upload the Flexible Sigmoidoscopy document type (FLEXSIG) configured with the necessary Concept ID (44441009).
      • Scan/Index or Upload the Computed Tomographic Colongraphy document type (CTC) configured with the necessary Concept ID (418714002).
      • Add the Fit DNA observation to the chart either manually, or via an established interface, and ensure the observation is configured with the 77354-9 LOIN-C.
