How To Add Biometric Data (Direct Entry) Follow
If the patient's biometric data is not uploaded automatically through their device, you can add the biometrics through a direct entry process. Direct entry biometrics are added on the Direct Entry tab. For information about the valid value thresholds for each biometric, see Biometric Data Thresholds.
Note: Biometric data added through the menu (Add Biometrics option) is not directly associated with a Patient Pathway. Use this option only when entering data in addition to a pathway schedule.
To add biometrics through direct entry:
- On the Patients page, click anywhere in the patient header, and then click the Direct Entry tab.
The Patient Direct Entry page appears.
Pathways Section: Each section includes an assigned Pathway with questions. Each question is followed by a response option with a check box. Each patient's customized clinical Pathway is presented as a guide for telephonic interaction. Each of the Pathway questions is presented in a hierarchical view, including each response option identical to how they were created in the Pathways. Select the check box for the response that best matches the patient's verbal response to each question.
Biometrics Section: Click Enter Biometrics to add the biometric readings the patient reported. The following dialog box appears:
- After typing the readings, do either of the following:
- Click Cancel to remove any entries you made.
- Click OK to save all biometric readings.
