Did you know you can change priority numbers for a group of patients?

Priority Update utility lets you change one or all medical history priorities for a selected group of patients to a single priority.

Simply search for the patients you want to change by running a medical history search and save the results of the search as an output group (or you can use a clinical audit group).

Then, to run Priority Update:

  1. From the Vision 3 front screen, select Utilities.
  2. Select Priority Update 48592.
  3. The Priority Update screen displays, from Select Group choose the group for which you would like to change the priorities. You can select to update priorities from the following group types:
      • Groups that you have created yourself from a search. If medical history Read codes are specified within your group, Priority Update updates the priorities for those specified coded entries only. Other parameters of the original search are also maintained, for example, date ranges.
      • Clinical Audit generated groups. Select a clinical audit line to use as a group for Priority Update.
  4. In From Priority, select which priorities should be changed. You can select from 1-9.
  5. In To, select the priority you would like to apply to the medical histories specified in the selected group search. You can select from 0-9.
  6. Select OK.

Note - The original entry details, for example, date and comments are unaffected and the audit trail is updated to show the change.
