The Immunization History appears in the History section of patient charts and in the Immunizations section of visits, phone notes, and portal messages.
The Immunization History has two parts: Vaccines and Diseases. The Vaccines section shows patients’ vaccine history, organized by immunization name. The Diseases section shows patients’ history of vaccine-preventable disease.
You can customize the default layout of the Immunization History to optimize it for all users and patients at your practice.
Configure the Vaccines Section
You can configure the layout and default display functionality of immunizations in the Vaccines section of the Immunization History.
Open the Configuration menu in PCC EHR and select the Immunizations option.
On the Immunization History Screen tab, click and drag the immunization rows to reorder them. Immunizations display on the Immunization History in the order you establish here.
To display immunizations by default on the Immunization History, check the “Display” box. Immunizations configured this way display as rows on the Immunization History even when patients have not received them.
Immunizations where the “Display” checkbox is blank remain hidden from the Immunization History until patients have received them.
When you have finished configuring the Vaccines section of the Immunization History screen, click “Save” to commit your changes and exit the tool.
Call PCC Support to Edit Immunizations or Add Combination Vaccines: The list of available immunizations in PCC EHR comes from your Immunization and Diseases table and other configuration under the hood in the Practice Management window. Contact PCC Support for help editing immunizations or adding new combination vaccines.
Configure the Diseases Section
You can customize the layout of diseases on the Immunization History screen.
Open the Configuration menu in PCC EHR and select the Immunizations option. Once in the configuration tool, click the Diseases tab.
On the Diseases tab, you can configure which vaccine-preventable diseases display on the Immunization History and elsewhere in PCC EHR. Vaccine-preventable diseases that are checked off in this configuration pane only display for patients who have received a diagnosis.
Check with PCC Support About Immunization Registry Configuration: Not all registries accept vaccine-preventable disease information for patients. If you would like to learn whether the registry with which you interface accepts this information, contact PCC Support to speak with an immunization registry specialist.
When you have finished configuring the Diseases section of the Immunization History screen, click “Save” to commit your changes and exit the tool.
