Statistics from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services show pneumonia to be the eighth leading cause of death in the United States, causing about 90,000 deaths per year. Each year pneumonia affects 4 million Americans, is responsible for 1 million hospital admissions, and results in 10 billion dollars in health care costs. The overall mortality rate of pneumonia is 13 percent, and is influenced by factors such as age, living in a nursing home, or having cardiac or renal disease. The large numbers of people affected by pneumonia and the associated health care costs make pneumonia care a focus for many health care quality improvement initiatives.
The Pneumonia Evaluation Medicine MedicalTemplate contains prompters for ascertaining different symptoms associated with pneumonia, such as dyspnea, chest pain, pleuritic pain, cough, fever, chills, nightsweats, and hemoptysis. Other prompters help identify patients who are at higher risk of aspiration pneumonia, multi-drug resistant infections, or infections due to less common causes including fungus, legionella, SARS, avian influenza, tuberculosis, and other microbes. Questions to document smoking history, drug abuse (both prescription and street drugs), and alcohol abuse are included to identify patients who are at increased risk of certain types of pneumonia.
