EHR Interventions

When a provider documents an intervention for an eligible patient encounter, it counts towards EHR Clinical Quality Measures. Interventions are documented while entering patient EHR Vital Signs and Smoking Status, or can be viewed and added on the Interventions window.

To view all patient's interventions, on the EHR Dashboard, click Interventions.

Adding interventions
