Step one: navigate to a patient’s profile
You can open a patient’s profile by searching for them in the top-right corner of any SHIIP page.
Step two: click on the ‘Patient Status’ button
The ‘Patient Status’ button is on the right side of the page. Clicking it will show a dropdown that includes the statuses that you have permission to update.
Step three: click on the status that you would like to update
After clicking ‘Patient Status’, there are three options that may be listed (depending on your account’s permissions):
- Vital Status – you can change if the patient is alive or deceased.
- Complex – you can update the patient’s complex conditions and complex status.
- End of Life Care – you can indicate if the patient is currently receiving or not receiving end of life care.
Click whichever option/status you would like to update and follow the on-screen instructions.
