Care Management - Deploying the Alert Processor

Suggest edit Updated on September 25, 2019

The Care Management Framework contains a Data-Admin-Queue instance in the PegaClinical RuleSet called Alert Processor that is derived from a Rule-Agent-Queue instance of the same name/class.

It is this data queue that processes all active alerts on a recurring schedule each day.

Out of the box, the queue is set to process alerts at 1:00 AM every day when the status of the work item is PENDING.

When the agent processes an alert in the queue, it:

  1. Evaluates scheduling information to determine if the alert is scheduled to run. If it is not, it evaluates the next alert in the queue.
  2. Evaluates the data source information to find claim criteria and create a result set. If there is none, it evaluates the next alert in the queue.
  3. Matches the codes against the data source result set.
  4. Stores all events on the alert work item in case of a matching event.
  5. Processes all dormant work items if the alert is looking for the presence of a claim.

The following diagram shows this chain of processing events by the agent.
