On August 4, President Biden declared monkeypox a national public health emergency. As the supply of monkeypox vaccine steadily increases, more providers and clinics will be able to offer immunization to their patients. If your clinic or practice provides or is planning to provide the monkeypox vaccine, TempDev's new Monkeypox Vaccine Clinic NextGen EHR Template can help. Your clinic offers a vital public service by vaccinating patients against monkeypox. But the administrative hassle of recording and billing for vaccinations can slow your efforts. TempDev's Monkeypox Vaccine Clinic Template lets you record vaccinations without opening individual patient charts for quick processing and easy billing. Here is why your practice should use the Monkeypox Vaccine Clinic Template.

Three Reasons To Use TempDev's Monkeypox Vaccine Clinic Template
1. No Need To Open Individual Patient Charts
Loading individual patient charts to record vaccinations takes time. With the Monkeypox Vaccine Clinic Template, you can search for patients, record responses to screening questions, and document vaccine administration without ever opening a patient's chart. The template helps you move patients through the vaccination process more quickly. With the Monkeypox Vaccine Clinic NextGen EHR Template, you can record a monkeypox vaccination in just 3-5 clicks per patient. The template also prevents documentation errors by capturing all necessary data during the vaccination visit. Prompts and check-boxes guide clinicians through screening questions, flag potential allergies, and ensure proper dose spacing. For example, the Monkeypox Vaccine Clinic Template pre-populates allergy history from each patient's EHR, alerting you to potential problems. You can add relevant allergies directly in the template as well. And the template also provides information on each patient's prior vaccinations to ensure the second dose is given on schedule. Because the Monkeypox Vaccine Clinic Template is built into your NextGen EHR system, you do not need to worry about copying or transferring data to patient records or billing systems. Data transfers can introduce errors, slowing reimbursement and putting patients at risk. TempDev's Monkeypox Vaccine Clinic NextGen EHR Template harnesses the power of your NextGen EHR to help you safely vaccinate more patients in less time.
2. Bill for Monkeypox Vaccines Quickly and Easily
Billing errors and insufficient documentation slow down reimbursement and cost your practice money. But in a busy vaccine clinic, errors can happen. The Monkeypox Vaccine Clinic Template is customizable to help streamline billing. The template comes pre-populated with the NDC codes, dosages, and administration codes for the two monkeypox vaccines, JYNNEOS and ACAM2000. Your clinicians only need to select the appropriate vaccine and note the administration site; the correct billing and documentation codes will pre-populate. Your practice can also configure the template to pre-populate patient payers. With this approach, you can bill for vaccine administration in just a few clicks. The Monkeypox Vaccine Clinic Template can help maximize patient flow while maintaining clean, accurate billing.
3. Integrate Your Vaccine Clinic With Inventory and Public Health Reporting Tools
Public health guidance and reporting requirements will evolve as the monkeypox outbreak spreads in the US. Currently, providers must report monkeypox immunizations to the appropriate state or local jurisdiction within 72 hours. The Monkeypox Vaccine Clinic Template is fully integrated with NextGen's Immunization Registry Interfaces to help you manage public health reporting. With the template, you do not need to re-enter vaccinations in the Immunization Module. Instead, you can pull information directly from the template to fulfill local and state reporting requirements. The Monkeypox Vaccine Clinic Template also works with NextGen's Vaccine Inventory Tool to help you keep track of your vaccine stock. The template automatically updates your vaccine inventory with each administration. With the Vaccine Inventory Tool, you can view available vaccines by practice site to track use rates and ensure sufficient supply. Given current supply limitations, you can also monitor supply to prevent overbooking vaccine appointments. And as the supply of monkeypox vaccines increases, you can use the Vaccine Inventory Tool to help you adjust inventory across sites as needed to meet demand.
Monkeypox Immunization Coding
The ADA has now released guidance on how to bill for the Monkeypox Vaccine, the template uses the following Monkeypox Immunization CPT codes:
- 90611 - Smallpox & monkeypox vaccine attenuated vaccinia virus, live, non-replicating, preservative-free, 0.5 mL dosage, suspension, for subcutaneous use
- 90612 - Long descriptor: Vaccinia (smallpox) virus vaccine, live, lyophilized, 0.3 mL dosage, for percutaneous use
When the government supplies the vaccines, only bill for the administration of the vaccine and not the vaccine code.
The CVX code for the smallpox monkeypox vaccine is 206.
