The purpose of this manual is to provide technical information about the CACs set-up guide. The set-up guide is designed to help clinical coordinators to run the Electronic Health Record (EHR) application.
This setup will explain options that are part of the Veteran’s Administration CPRS, TIU, and consult packages and how they differ from the EHR, as well as those items that are unique to the EHR.
This document is divided into the following sections: Basic EHR Setup, Patient Context Configuration, Encounter Context, Setting Up a New User, TIU Configuration, Notification Configuration, Order Entry Configuration, Consult Tracking Configuration, Medication Management Configuration, Lab Configuration, Vital Measurement Configuration, Report Configuration, Problem List Configuration, POV Configuration, Personal Health Hx Configuration, Procedure Configuration, Patient Education Configuration, Exam Configuration, Health Factor Configuration, Immunization Configuration, VueCnetric Framework Configuration, Spellchecking Configuration, Reminder Configuration, Design Mode, IHS Setup, Point of Care Lab, Reminders, Coding Tools, Drug Text Orders, and Print Formats for CII Prescriptions.

The setup of the EHR involves the setup of several different packages. The setup is generally done using RPMS options available to Clinical Coordinators. The setup is also a continuing process. This section contains the various setups that need to be done. The majority of the setup can be done through the RPMS-EHR Configuration Master Menu. The CAC needs access to the BEHO menu and have the BEHOZMENU key/ to access this master menu.

Because TIU will be installed before the EHR software, some of the setup can be started early. The TIU Maintenance Menu is where these options are found (EHR | TIU Configuration | TIU Medical Records | TIU Maintenance Menu). Use the options in bold.
