This patch releases the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Checklist 5 (PCL-5) mental health instrument. This will make PCL-5 available for selection in MHA (Mental Health Assistant) application. The previous versions of PTSD checklists, PCL-C and PCL-M are inactivated with this patch. Nationally released Clinical Reminders and Reminder Dialogs that made use of PCL- C as a mental health finding are also updated to use PCL-5. These include:
Additionally, the patch provides an interim solution for the problem where instruments with complex scoring algorithms display inaccurate scores in Clinical Reminders and Health Summary. A filter is added that will prevent selection of these instruments in Clinical Reminders and Health Summary until a VistA based scoring algorithm can be deployed.
To include the changes to Mental Health, Clinical Reminders, and Health Summary, three patches are bundled together in a multi-package build:
YS*5.01*119 PCL-5 Update and Instrument Scoring
PXRM*2.0*62 PCL-5 Mental Health Instrument Update
GMTS*2.7*116 Correct List of Mental Health Instruments
This revision provides an updated build (T7) for the patch bundle.
YS*5.01*119 is the main patch which adds the PCL-5 instrument and corrects some scoring issues.
GMTS*2.7*116 is a health summary patch that changes a routine in health summary so that it used a mental health API for obtaining the list of instruments.
PXRM*2.0*62 updates some clinical reminders and reminder dialogs so that they use PCL-5 instead of the older PCLC instrument.
