Physician group recommends Problem List guidelines

January 2013

A group of physicians affiliated with Legacy Health is proposing a list of nine guidelines for using the Epic Problem List.

The physicians all agree that consensus on the use of the Problem List is critical to keeping the patient record in Epic accurate, meaningful and up to date. The group consists of more than 20 employed and community physicians from different specialties who practice in the clinic, hospital and long-term care environments.

The guidelines are now being widely distributed in the hope that they will be discussed, tested and evaluated by physicians and providers across Legacy.

Please review the proposed guidelines and send comments and suggestions to Mikeanne Minter, M.D. and to Amy Chaumeton, M.D. They will take your suggestions and concerns back to the physician group and other groups as appropriate for consideration.
