Outside Practitioner Assessments
If you're a practitioner wanting to send an update about a mutual patient to Pine Street, here are the key metrics to consider including in your report:
Retrospective Analysis (if the patient has a new diagnosis): Knowing the current diagnosis, looking back over your serially collected set of diagnostic notes, are you able to retrospectively "see" this diagnosis? If so, and if you are a practitioner of TCM, what is the significant dominant energetic pattern to which you would connect the dots in regards to cause and effect?
Time Metrics: Is the patient doing better over time? Are your therapeutic goals being reached?
Performance Metrics: Is the patient feeling better over time? If you are a practitioner of TCM, are the underlying TCM energetic patterns that have been identified resolving?
Treatment Intensity Metrics: Is the patient reporting symptoms at each office visit? Are you responding to these symptoms at the optimal calibration?
Quality of Life Metrics: Is the patient feeling better than expected?
Treatment Synergy Metrics: According to your in-office diagnostics, is the patient having better-than-expected outcomes?
Treatment Focus Metrics: Based on your in-office diagnostics, what are your current concerns and what are your treatment goals and focus for the next six months?
Lifestyle Metrics: Are daily habits in regards to nutrition, fitness, meditation, sleep, stress, and compliance where you want them to be at this time? If not, please explain.
