Scottish Prior Approval Chart Mapping | 13.0
V13.0 sees the introduction of base chart mapping, so that existing patients charting, is represented in the prior approval base charting area, without any extra input.
The process starts by assigning a base chart category to each service.
Most of the standard services have been pre-mapped, but these can be changed by editing the service item if required.
When requesting a prior approval for a patient, the system will check to make sure the patient clinical history is covered by base chart mappings. If there are any gaps, a prompt will appear where the additional mappings can be set.
Existing mapping will be used automatically so eventually this mapping dialogue will not come up very often. If a service does not form part of the base chart, select the ‘Not relevant’ option, and it won’t be included.
Some services will require additional material information. Where these are present an additional prompt will ask for this information.
The dialogue shows as much information as possible to help determine what the material should be. Hovering over the clinical notes will show the full clinical note if there is one. Select the material for all the listed services to continue. Once the material has been stored for that patient, and service, then it will not be asked for again. However, this dialogue may continue to appear in the future, as it is asking for information about individual patients and services where that information was not stored.
Once this material information has been entered into the prior approval screen will show and the base charting will be displayed with the existing information.
