Provide seamless care for patients across the many aspects of their lives with the help of a care plan
Creating your practice’s care plan template should be an iterative process. When deciding where to start, think about your patient population. What type of care plan function (e.g., action, emergency, summary) has been most requested by patients and families? Alternatively, you may want to focus first on including elements that can be populated from your electronic medical record. The key is to get started and then keep adding elements to the care plan and assessing to make sure you balance the patient and practice’s needs. This resource lets pediatric practices pick and choose items to include in a care plan.
