CAT Starting Point:
RECIPE Steps Filters:
You don't have to filter for gender, as the report will do that for you
As we want to identify patients seen by a particular provider, we need to filter by assigned provider. CAT4 uses different ways to assign a provider depending on your clinical system, for more information please see here:
Find patients never screened
Find patients underscreened
To see the results date scroll to the last column - the dates of each result will be listed. CAT4 doesn't provide a report matching the 4 years for Pap smears and 7 years for HPV required for this report, so you will have find the HPV results manually by sorting the second last column. HPV result will be listed first when sorted along with the date of the test.
