How To Assign Patient Risk Level Follow
In the Care Team Portal, you can assign a risk level to patients based on their health condition. With the Risk Level, you can easily see which patients have an accelerated risk.
To assign a patient risk level:
- On the Patient List page, click the menu.
- In the menu, click Change Risk.
The Risk Level Change window appears.
- In the Risk Level Change window, click Low, Medium, or High to designate the patient’s level of risk for readmission to a facility. Risk is either automatically determined using the Risk Stratification Form (which closely resembles the LACE tool) or you can set it manually (based on your facility’s definition/protocol).
- In the Reason box, type the reason that you are changing the patient's risk level, such as a new health condition.
- Click OK.
