The EHR dashboard is a central location for entering patient data for EHR meaningful use reporting. During a patient visit, open the dashboard to quickly enter data for objectives and measures. You can also view reports for a specific provider and reporting period.
There are three different dashboards options, each based on the current setting for stage of meaningful use. See Set Your MU Stage.
To open the dashboard, select a patient, open the Chart module, then click EHR in the toolbar.
Provider for this patient: The patient's primary provider. For reporting purposes, it should be an provider with an EHR Annual Provider Key.
Provider logged on: The provider/person currently Logged On to Open Dental.
Grid: A quick indicator of patient data that needs to be entered. As you enter data that meets MU criteria, the rows may turn green.
Note: Do not rely on this grid to track your MU progress; it is merely a guide. This grid does not take into account date ranges or per-patient rules.
Reports and Percentages
Measure Calc: Generate a report of measure percentages. The report will include denominators, numerators, and percentages for a specific provider and reporting period. See EHR Measure Report.
Quality Meas: Generate a report that details clinical quality measure (CQM) percentages. The report will include denominators, numerators, and percentages for a specific provider and reporting period. See Report Clinical Quality Measures.
Vaccines: Click to enter immunizations administered to patients and export the data as an HL7 XVU message. Since vaccines are often outside the scope of many dental practices, providers may qualify for an exclusion.
