To monitor a glucose curve, you will need to enter the blood glucose either more frequently than every hour (to see how to do that, please click HERE) or you will need to enter vitals every few hours, but not have the charge repeat itself. 

In order to do this, you will need to have a billable parameter, we recommend calling it 'Blood Glucose Curve (billable)' and a non billable parameter which we would recommend calling Blood Glucose (monitoring). Note that the non-billable parameter will need to default to numeric values. To do so, you can go to your Settings -> Parameters, then select edit to choose your default setting. 

You will need to add the billable daily Blood Glucose Curve to your flowsheet, and have it repeating as just 'once', or every 24 hours if you would like to repeat the curve the next day. Should you have certain time intervals that the charge should repeat (such as charging for 3 hours of curving at a time), you will need to repeat the billable parameter at the specific hourly intervals. This will need to be initialled as soon as the blood glucose curve is started, to ensure the charge is either transferred to your EMR or recorded on your billing PDF.

You will need to then add the Blood Glucose (monitoring) parameter to the flowsheet. This can be repeated on the flowsheet at whichever interval you choose, such as every hour. Your flowsheet will end up looking a little like this: 

If you choose to charge for a blood glucose test each time you do a blood glucose check, you can add a billable parameter with a default of a numeric picker type in order to have the charge placed every time you enter a value. Ensure that you call this parameter something like 'Blood Glucose Single (billable)' in order to differentiate between curve charges and single charges.
