The Current Patients tab provides a means to access patient charts through browsing versus individually searching for patients. The patient list consists of patients for whom you are designated as their primary nephrologist or for whom you have been granted covering rights by the patient’s primary nephrologist. An NPP has access to their supervising nephrologists’ patients for those facilities where the NPP is credentialed.
Data for the patient includes last name, first name, age, DOB, gender, phone number, facility name, in-center hemodialysis schedule for an ICHD patient, the modality for peritoneal dialysis or home hemodialysis patients, and the patient’s primary nephrologist name if you are not the primary nephrologist. The list is sorted alphabetically by the patient’s last name. A last name alphabetized navigation shortcut is available at the top of the screen. Clicking on a letter will take you to the appropriate section. The active letter will be highlighted in green. When scrolling through the list of letters, the active letter will be updated.
Care team members enter the DaVita patient's COVID status into the Risk Event Management system (REM). If the patient meets the COVID-19 criteria, then the COVID-19 status will show one of the 3 status tags; PUI Asymptomatic, PUI Symptomatic, or COVID-19 Positive. The COVID-19 status tags in the patient banner are color-coded; PUI Asymptomatic is yellow, PUI Symptomatic is orange, and COVID-19 Positive is red. Click the status tags to show details on the most recent status event information. The information may include: Status; Last Date in Facility; Facility Action; Receiving Dialysis in Facility; and Patient Treatment Going Forward. The status information is pulled from REM every hour.
