Care Plans are in Office Practicum for a patient's health maintenance schedule.

Note: The Bright Futures Preventive Care Plan is linked with the Diagnostic Test Management table and the Vital Signs/Growth Chart table to determine whether a patient has had standard measurements and screening tests performed, which are listed below:

  • Well baby visits according to the standard AAP schedule, with documentation of height, weight, head circumference and development
  • After age 2, annual preventive exams with height, weight, and BMI. Vision, hearing and blood pressure after age three. Developmental assessment up until age 5.
  • Newborn Metabolic Screen and newborn hearing screen.
  • Hemoglobin & Lead at one and two years of age. Children with WIC require more frequent anemia screens.
  • Annual lead risk assessment until age 6, with lead levels if there's a risk of exposure.
  • Annual "TB risk" assessment and if positive, a PPD.
  • Another anemia screen in adolescence.
  • Cholesterol screen in adolescence, but earlier if there are risk factors.

The Customize Patient Care Plan window lists the customized plans applied to the patient along with providing a list of available care plans that can be applied to the patient. You can manage a patient's Care Plan in this window.
