New Suicide Risk Alert Banner

For All Physicians and Providers
Effective Thursday, Oct. 24

Beginning Oct. 24, a new suicide risk banner alert will display across the Patient List and Summary views for patients who are at imminent or high risk for suicide.

This information is:

  • Based upon their most recent score for the PHQ-9 Depression Screening tool.
  • In accordance with the new systemwide PCPS180 Suicide Risk Assessment and Mitigation Policy.

The banner allows care teams to quickly identify at-risk patients and help ensure that the recommended action steps are followed.
