Group Therapy documentation

feature

(Sherwin Gaddis) #1

I am trying to figure out how far this group feature goes.
It looks abandoned at the point of being able to bill a group session.
I couldn’t find any documentation on the subject either.
Does anyone know where or if there is any documentation?

hi @juggernautsei ,

Do you mean this feature:
https://www.open-emr.org/wiki/index.php/Administration_Globals#Enable_Group_Therapy

This is a bit of a hidden gem that was brought into codebase by matrix. It basically treats a group almost as a patient (and can add patients to group, create group encounters, create group notes and schedule group visit). When you turn it on a Groups menu item will appear on the main menu, which recommend then playing with to see how it works. Note US centric billing was likely not built into it since it was for a non US user.

Maybe something I can address while doing Claim Builder. I also think there may be some compliance issues in U.S. Just can’t recall what they are but will try to find out. It wasn’t major but I think something to do with how providers are handled.
