Our standalone application allows clinical users to get up to speed on their patient populations quickly and easily through a separate application. It uses the same components and underlying data as our ZAP for EHRs and embedded components, making it a great place to start.

Setting up users and patients

Care team member accounts can be managed via our API. It is important that each user is also linked to a practitioner resource. For help with your configuration, feel free to reach out to the Zus team.

Patients may either be set up via API or manually through the user interface. Please take care to ensure key demographics and contact information are included, as this greatly increases our ability to match patient history in partner networks. The other alternative is for clinical users to manually add patients via the user interface using the “add patient” button.

Refreshing patient history

Patient history may either be refreshed via the Patient History API.

Accessing and managing patient history

Once logged in, users will see a list of patients and be able to select the desired patient, or search for patients by name. Clicking the patient’s row will take the user to the patient’s ZAP, which currently is populated with demographic details, conditions, and medications.

Patient demographic details are unique to the given Builder (not currently drawing from network sources or others on the Zus network) and can be updated to improve match rate via the application or API.

Conditions is divided into two sections - “Patient Record” and “Other Provider Records.” Initially, the patient record will be blank while the “Other Provider Records” will reflect a summarized view of all available conditions. Zus summarizes conditions on the basis of SNOMED codes. For more information about summarization, please refer to our Data Enrichment documentation.

Users may view history by clicking on the “...” menu to the right of each entry. This will expose all of the individual records that have led to the given condition, as well as any other codes linked to the resource. If a source document is available, it will be linked as well.

Users may add a new condition via the “Add Condition” button, noting that selections chosen in the auto-complete condition search will be tied to a SNOMED code. If a user wants to verify an existing condition, she may click the “Add” button within the “...” menu, which will create a new entry for the specific condition.

A similar interface is available for medications. Users may also view history (which includes medication review events, medication administrations, prescriptions written and prescription fills), add a medication to their record, or add a brand new medication. Zus uses RxNorm as our preferred terminology for medications.
