The practice has a written process and defined standards for providing access to clinical advice and continuity of medical record information at all times, and regularly assesses its performance on:

1.B.1 Providing continuity of medical record information for care and advice when office is closed.

You can access medical records remotely using the EHR and/or pocketPCC from your smart phone or home computer.

1.B.2 Providing timely clinical advice by telephone. (CRITICAL FACTOR)

Document your process for providing timely advice to patients over the phone. PCC EHR clients should record phone calls as phone encounters. For calls that need a callback, a phone task should be created with an appropriate task type and this task should be completed once the phone call has been initially responded to. As documentation for this factor, users can generate a report of phone calls and response times using the "Phone Encounter Performance Report" in the EHR. This report can be used as a call log showing each phone call including response time to complete the first associated task.
