Record and chart changes in vital signs:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Blood pressure
  • Calculate and display: BMI
  • Plot and display growth charts for children 2–20 years, including BMI.

For more than 50% of all unique patients age 2 and over seen by the EP, the height, weight and blood pressure are recorded as structured data

 

How does eClinicalWorks fulfill this requirement?

On each patient's Progress Note or Telephone Encounter, eClinicalWorks provides the ability to record vital signs. All meaningful use vitals, vital graphs and growth charts are standard within the application. Each element (vital sign) is captured in a structured manner and the BMI is calculated automatically based upon the patient's height and weight.
