Clinical Application Coordinator (CAC)
Welcome to the IHS CAC web portal. This site provides news, information and resources to assist Clinical Application Coordinators in the implementation and maintenance of EHR-related, multi-service clinical software applications. We encourage you to make use of this valuable support on an on going basis and we look for your contributions to maintaining it as a valuable and relevant resource.
Health Summary Components released in April, 2006: This application provides functionality to produce locally customizable TIU objects. Health summary flow sheets and supplements (diabetes, asthma, etc) can be created and displayed in the GUI and inserted in the progress note. End users can also create an ad-hoc health summary on the fly on the Reports tab.
Clinical Reminders - The Next Step: Sites who are using Clinical Reminders have demonstrated an improvement in their GPRA performance measures by informing the clinician when the patient is due for a clinical activity such as a health maintenance reminder. Reminder "dialogs" assist the clinician in resolving the reminder in a standardized manner. Your site should have the EHR fully implemented for at least 6 months before implementing reminders.
The best resource for support with the job of being a Clinical Application Coordinator is the EHR Listserv. A number of experienced CACs monitor the Listserv and respond promptly and thoroughly to questions raised by others. By using a forum such as the Listserv, the entire EHR community benefits from the discussion.
