User Settings

Problem List Favorite Search Type

The 'Problem List Favorite Search Type' user setting allows a user to choose which data is returned in the 'Favorites List' in the Problem List chart tab.  Users may find it helpful to change this setting so that the list of favorite items returned are either more or less specific based on usage patterns.

Default Value: Company

Options:

  • Company:  This option shows the top most used problem list items across the entire patient population. This setting works in conjunction with the 'Problem List Favorite Search Days' user setting.
  • User:  This option shows the top most used problem list items for the logged in user. This setting works in conjunction with the 'Problem List Favorite Search Days' user setting.
  • Original Search:   This option shows the top most used problem list items across the entire patient population. No time restrictions are applied when using this search.

Problem List Favorite Search Days

The 'Problem List Favorite Search Days' user setting allows a user to choose how far back in time to look when generating the 'Favorites List' in the Problem List chart tab.  This setting works in conjunction with the Problem List Favorite Search Type user setting.  

The reason this setting exists is so that the favorites list displayed shows relevant and timely data. For example, if no time frame existed, iSalus would build a list of favorites based on all of the data in the system.  This becomes problematic when a specific code that was used commonly is no longer an acceptable code.  Without this setting, you would have to use the "acceptable" code for several years to surpass the "unacceptable" code by usage.  However, when a time frame is added, the "unacceptable" code will be used less in this smaller time frame compared to the "acceptable" code.

Default Value: 365 days

Options:

  • Search Days:  Set this to a number of days in the past to look

Problem List Favorites Search Max Rows

The 'Problem List Favorite Search Max Rows' user setting allows a user to choose how many items are return in the 'Favorites List' in the Problem List chart tab.  

Change this setting in order to limit or expand the number of rows you see in the 'Favorites List'.

Default Value: 100

Options:

  • Max Rows:  This is a numeric value that represent how many rows will be returned

Problem List Summary View

The 'Problem List Summary View' user setting allows a user to decide how the list of problems display on the Problem List chart tab.  

Most users will use the more modern view, however, some users may choose to revert to the older layout of this window.

Default Value: Text

Options:

  • Text:  This option display the data in a more modern, easy to understand format.

  • Table:  This display the data in a grid view.  This is the 'older' way of looking at the data. 

Search List Type

The 'Search List Type' user setting allows a user to decide which code set the system search against by default in the Problem List chart tab.  

Default Value: SNOMED Problem

Options:

  • ICD:  This option causes the problem list to search against the diagnosis codes that have been added to the system via Setup > Diagnosis Codes.
  • SNOMED Problem: This option causes the problem list to search against a SNOMED library that are linked to problems. The 'Problem' option means that the SNOMED value can cross-walk into an ICD code.
  • SNOMED Full: This option causes the problem list to search against a SNOMED library.  This option search across all possible SNOMED terms, regardless if it can be linked to an ICD code.

SNOMED is a industry standard codification mechanism that provides "physician friendly" naming schemes and abbreviations.

Procedure List for Vitals Timeline Wireframe Summary

The setting is used to identify a list of procedure codes should be added to the Vitals Timeline graph when a user selects the Procedures icon. This can be a specific list of codes separated by a comma (i.e. 99213, 99205) or a range of codes (99203-99205).

This setting works in unison with the Company Setting of the same name.  If the company setting is set and the user setting is not, the company setting will be applied.

Default Value: blank

Options: A comma separated list of procedure codes and/or a range of cpt codes. Also, 'NONE' can be added to force the procedures off for the user.

The setting is used to identify a list of wireframes (logical grouping of lab result values) that should be added to the Vitals Timeline graph.  This can be a specific list of values, separated by a comma.
