Important considerations

  • The Care Plan in eCareManager is used primarily as an intraprofessional communication tool. Variables related to care provider type and specialty, code status, prognosis, family/healthcare proxy, end-of-life discussions, and various therapies (sedation and analgesia therpaies, airway and ventilation status, and stress ulcer and deep vein thrombosis) can be documented on the Care Plan.

  • The End-of-Life Discussion section of the Care Plan allows for the care provider who had the discussion, the date/time of the discussion as well as free text comments describing the discussion to be documented.
