Diagnoses Fields / Options







Previous Topic  Next Topic 

Below is an alphabetical list of the fields and options located on the diagnosis data entry page.  To jump directly to the information for a specific field or option, press <Ctrl+F> to access your browser's search field and enter the name of the field/option in question. 

  NOTE: A gear icon  next to a field or option in this list indicates that it is either optional (and therefore not automatically available in all AWARDS databases), or that some aspect of it (for example drop-down selections) is configurable.  For more information on the ways in which this data entry page can be configured, see the "Diagnosis Options" portion of the Medical Module - Implementation Requests Form. To request changes detailed there, complete the form and submit it to [email protected]

Comments

In this field, type or make changes to any comments pertaining to the diagnosis.

Condition

In this field, type or make changes to the condition or description of the diagnosis.

IMPORTANT! If your AWARDS database has been configured to use the optional fee-based IMO service, as indicated by an IT icon to the right of the Condition field, click here for more information on how to complete a condition / code search using that tool.

Diagnosed By

Click this drop-down arrow and select the name of the physician who diagnosed the client.

  NOTE: This selection list is comprised of users with chart access to the program in which diagnoses data entry is being done, who:  A) Have been assigned the optional "List as Prescribing/Diagnosing Physician" data entry/access permission on the individual layer -OR- B) have been designated as an "eligible provider" within the Human Resources module Staff Information feature in an AWARDS database configured for AWARDS Certified Edition.

Diagnosis Date

In this field, type or make changes to the date on which the diagnosis was made (using mm/dd/yyyy format), or select the date using the date picker drop-down arrow. 

End Date

In this field, type or make changes to the date on which the diagnosis condition ended (using mm/dd/yyyy format), or select the date using the date picker drop-down arrow.   Future dates are not allowed.

  NOTE: Entering an end date and saving the diagnosis record moves the diagnosis from the list of current diagnoses to the diagnosis history for the client.  As a result, it is not displayed when accessing the Diagnoses index while using the Active filter.

ICD-10 Code

In this field, type or make changes to the ICD-10 diagnosis code.  The value entered can only contain alphanumeric characters and underscores ( _ ).

IMPORTANT! If your AWARDS database has been configured to use the optional fee-based IMO service, as indicated by an IT icon to the right of the Condition field, click here for more information on how to complete a condition / code search using that tool.

Onset Date

In this field, type or make changes to the date on which the diagnosis condition began (using mm/dd/yyyy format), or select the date using the date picker drop-down arrow.  The specified date must be on or before the Diagnosis Date.

Order Level

Click the {Program Name} Order Level drop-down arrow and select "Primary," "Secondary," or "Tertiary" to indicate the diagnosis ranking for the client within the selected program.  This value is saved at the program level; as a result, if the client is in multiple programs each program can have a separate "Primary" diagnosis.

  NOTE: For agencies using the BillingBuilder, diagnoses set as "Primary" are used in the billing process; specifically, AWARDS uses the oldest of all Primary diagnoses entered across all of a client's programs.
