VA Code in Flight Submission - Suicide High Risk Patient Enhancements iter 1 build 4
Revision: 1
Please use this identifier to cite or link to this publication:
The National Mental Health Service requires an IT solution that facilitates the delivery of care to Veterans at high risk for suicide. The IT solution shall enhance the Category 1 Patient Record Flag feature to include improved reporting that allows for the ability to review flags based on the applicable timeframe, current status, and manage flag ownership when the Veteran is receiving treatment at more than one facility. The IT solution shall enable prescribing providers to dispense medications more frequently and in smaller quantities. Additionally, the IT solution will modify the copays associated with more frequent contact with mental health providers and the increased costs associated with dispensing medications in smaller amounts, so that these additional costs are not passed to these Veterans.

DG: This patch implements the "OTH 90 DAY MENTAL HEALTH" as a new secondary
eligibility code for patient registration process.
It is used to identify and track the "other than honorably discharged"
service members for emergency mental health services in the Department of
Veterans Affairs (VA).
This patch implements the new Application Programming Interface that
provides the "OTH 90 DAY MENTAL HEALTH" eligibility information to the
Mental Health application.

IB: The Mental Health Suicide Prevention - Suicide High Risk Patient
Enhancements effort incorporates the Modifying High Risk patient
Copayments and the Display Patient Record Flag (PRF) effort and ownership
management and transfer initiatives. The goal of this effort is to
improve the delivery of targeted Mental Health care for individuals at
high risk for suicide. Modification of copayments for Veterans assessed
as being at high risk for suicide involves making changes to the existing
VistA and payment systems to support regulatory change processes aimed at
removing financial barriers that may prevent these Veterans from engaging
in enhanced care, which includes more frequent contacts and dispensing
medications in smaller amounts more frequently, as safety precautions.
The Display PRF effort enhances the current VistA system and Delphi
graphical user interface to address deficiencies in the functionality of
the existing PRF package that interfere with effective management of
coordination of care for high risk individuals.

OR: The purpose of this patch is to temporarily distribute:
- the OR OTHD CLOCK GET Remote Procedure Call for that is used to
display the OTH status for the patient.
- the MUMPS code to support the OR OTHD CLOCK GET Remote Procedure Call.
- the menu option that contains the registration of the OR OTHD CLOCK GET
Remote Procedure Call for use by the Computerized Patient Record System
(CPRS) Graphical User Interface (GUI).
