When doing Patient Recall for the Core 12 measure of meaningful use for Preventive Care, one can only choose one provider name to "sign" at the bottom of a mail merge that includes the provider signature.
In a practice where there are multiple providers, patients will get a letter signed by a provider that may not be their primary care provider at that practice. Confusing to patients. Unfair to the actual provider.
To be able to use the Patient Recall to replace a card catalog system of mailing when a(n) S&P item is due, would be ideal if it could be run per provider. This way they would utilize the EMR to properly track reminders due to patients of each provider without returning results for all (a sometimes overwhelming list if there are several providers), and still get meaningful use credit.
May we suggest the list be generated broken down by provider?
Currently we haven't found a work around.
