Chart Alert

The Chart Alert feature is a free-text message attached to the patient's chart that informs the staff of special precautions they should take when caring for specific patients. This feature allows the user to create, update, retrieve and delete chart alerts.

If a patient is registered in a department that has athenaClinicals enabled, you can add a text alert to the patient's chart to alert staff to special precautions they should take when scheduling, rooming, and caring for specific patients. Examples include patients who are immunocompromised, have physical or mental impairments, or who might need other special accommodations.

Chart alerts help your practice communicate important information about specific patients internally across several patient-focused workflows in athenaNet.

A chart alert appears prominently the first time you view a patient's Quickview. After you close the alert, it appears as a minimized alert icon in the green patient banner until you view a different patient.

When there is no alert to display for a patient, a faint alert icon with an exclamation point appears next to the patient's name in the patient banner.

If you have permission to add and edit chart alerts, you can click the alert icon to create a new chart alert for the patient. (The permission is included in the Superuser, Clinicals, and Receptionist roles by default, and is also available as a standalone Chart Alerts permission.)

With APIs, your application can:
•  Retrieve a patient’s existing chart alert text with GET /patients/{patientid}/chartalert.
•  Add additional messages to an existing chart alert with PUT /patients/{patientid}/chartalert.
•  Create a chart alert with POST /patients/{patientid}/chartalert.
•  Delete a patient’s chart alert with DELETE /patients/{patientid}/chartalert.
