When documenting an inpatient encounter, use the Epic dot phrase .HPROBL instead of other dot phrases previously used. By using .HPROBL you’ll:
- More accurately capture the problem list for hospital visits.
- Narrow the problem list, capturing only relevant diagnoses, applicable to the hospital visit.
- Support note fidelity and accuracy, since only conditions pertinent the hospital stay are now included.
- Reduce note clutter that interrupts provider-to-provider communication.
Be sure to also update your personal templates with .HPROBL.
