Discharge Appointment Scheduling How to use Star. Panel to request discharge appointments via Message Baskets and Star. Forms
This is how a patient’s information appears in Star Panel
Select the “Forms” tab
Click on “VUH Discharge Appointment Request” (in the BLUE font) First time users will need to search the Form by typing Discharge next to search title and clicking the box to the left of the form. Next click Refresh in the upper right corner. This saves the form as a preference.
The VUH Discharge Appointment Request Form appears
Type in the name of the Attending MD in the blank marked “Ordering Attending Provider” (Dr Tulipan in this example)
Click on “Add Data” to request an appointment
A set of blanks will appear
In the blanks type in the ordered appointment information.
It is MOST helpful to indicate if the patient had surgery in the “Comments” section.
Click on “Save Only this Part”
Your request is saved to the form. Press “Modify” to make corrections.
Click on “Add Data” to enter another appointment or radiology visit
Once again, a new set of blanks appear.
Type in the next appointment needed (radiology in this case). Click here to acknowledge the Radiology order in Wiz
Use the “Comments” section for special instructions (“with and without contrast” or “before appt. in Neurosurgery”)
Also use the “Comments” section to indicate when the appointment is with a provider OTHER THAN the attending (Dr P Russell in this case)
Remember to always click on “Save Only This Part” to save the information.
All appointments requested
Enter the contact numbers for the patient. This is CRITICAL if Central Appointment Scheduling needs to reach the patient after discharge. (if patient is going to a Nursing home or a relative’s house, please put this number in the “Primary Contact #” blank. )
After entering ALL of your requests, Click on “Save this to Star. Panel”
NOTE: Clicking “Save to Star. Panel” saves this FORM to Star Panel It does NOT send your request to Central Appointment Scheduling. Another step is required to SEND your request.
Click “OK” to finalize form
