AUTOMATED PRE AUDIT MQSA MACRO

A macro is provided to automate preparation for MQSA audit. Audit requires completed pathological findings for audit period, as well as resolution to unresolved exams when applicable. A macro is offered to produce itemized list of patients with incomplete pathology, and unresolved exams. The macro will automatically run administrative reports 4U, 4T, 4X, producing patient list of incomplete pathology results, and 5A for unresolved exams, for selected audit period.

 

Tap Marco button, select macro “1 Run Before MQSA Audit”, select Date Range, tap Print Selected button.

  • 4U Patients with Suspended / In Progress Pathology, provides list of patients with incomplete pathology.
  • 4T Patients with BX and NO Pathology, provides list of patients with BX, but NO associated pathology.
  • 4X Patients with Birads 4/5 and NO Pathology, provides list of patients with Birads 4 or 5 and NO pathology.
  • 5A Unresolved Exams, provides list of exams unresolved awaiting final outcome, to be incorporated.
