  • PATIENT on patientUnitStayID

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.

  • If infectious disease data are present for a hospital, then this it is likely used to communicate site or source of infectious process and infection control precautions between bedside providers and may be widely used at that particular hospital. This section is rarely completed.
