EMR- VITAL SIGNS AREA:
BMI: The area under the HT/WT/BMI area where it says "BMI not taken". We are a bariatric surgery office and it would be more accurate to say, "BMI not calculated" because you do not take a patients BMI. You take their height and their weight to obtain the BMI calculation.
This reasons for inability to calculate are not accurately portrayed in the drop down reasons provided. It should possibly state: 1. Unable to weigh due to scale limit, 2. Patient refuses weight, 3. Unable to measure height, 4. Pt unable to stand, 5. Scale not available, 6. Telehealth appt.
