Can’t the computer do that for me??? Yes eCalcs can. When we installed Galen eCalcs, our clinicians deleted their bookmarked calculators and now stay in TouchWorks where patient data is auto-populated and calculation is just a click away.
The Galen eCalcs are very valuable tools that facilitate the entry of key clinical data elements, as well as their retrieval for display in flow sheets or inclusion in analytic reports. This is particularly useful for clinical quality measures that must be available to providers at the point of care and also must be reported to CMS or other agencies or payers.
