Reports

  • B11428 - Modified Dialysis Productivity Connect report to pull based on encounters:  Previously, the Connect report, Dialysis Productivity Report was based around a patient's schedule. If a patient was seen on a scheduled day, the visit would be shown with the appropriate provider, etc. If a patient was not seen on a scheduled day then the schedule item was still shown, but any visit-specific fields were left blank. Now, this report will pull all dialysis encounters, whether they are on scheduled days or not. Even if dialysis is scheduled, the day will not show up on this report unless an encounter occurred.
