Astronaut now supports ICD-10. Signing PIN reset into TMG-CPRS, 1 year of eRx including Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS).
Astronaut now supports ICD-10. We’ve also put changing document signing PIN into TMG-CPRS on the Tools menu so that the user does not have to go into the text-based interface to change their signing PIN. Changing signing PIN is was a difficult undertaking for most users and even more difficult to provide support for. That problem has now disappeared.
Upgrading an Astronaut server to ICD-10 requires a major upgrade. That major upgrade is best obtained from the WorldVistA 501c3 organization through purchasing a multibuild. You also have to be licensed for CPT codes from the American Medical Association. The current base Astronaut server does not and legally cannot distribute these.
We will keep you appraised of how ICD-10 works with Astronaut in the near future.
It has been 1 year since Astronaut began eRX including Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS). Conclusion 1: I won’t go back to paper prescribing. Conclusion 2: eRX is not perfect and has plenty of glitches some software and some human. Conclusion 3: Despite its problems, eRX can improve while paper can’t.
Both inpatient and outpatient, comprehensive paperless distance supervision with Astronaut has been clinically tested and optimized for performance and safety.
