Med Variance Alerts

We are now sending out an additional Medication Variance Alert to those who are to be notified. This one is sent out after the user has identified that one of the med variance conditions has been med and submits the "Give Med" form.
This alert says, "A new Medication Variance condition has occurred.  You will receive another email upon its completion."

The user then is supposed to complete the Med Variance form.  Once that is completed, you receive the Med Variance alert that you are accustomed to seeing.  If you receive the first alert without a follow-up alert, you will need to make sure that the user filled out the form.

NOTE:  Kentucky users will not receive this alert.

Agency Sites - New Fields Added

We have added some new optional fields to the Agency Sites form.  Not all agencies will use these but you could all make use of the "Notes" field.  The additional fields are at the bottom of the form.
The Housing Type field only applies to Missouri currently.  Send us a Help Desk if you need the Housing Type field as well.

Important Dates on Info Page and Med History on Health Passport

We have implemented the change on the Personal Info page that shows the "Important Dates" so that only the Encounters/Appointments marked as Important Dates  = Yes will show up here.

Also, the New Health Passport has been changed to include the Encounters/Appointments marked as  Med History = Yes under a new Medical History section near the bottom.

Please mark the encounter/appointment records that you think are worthy of showing up in these areas.

New Contact Type -- "Inactive"

We have added a new contact checkbox to designate the contact as inactive.  Inactive contacts will not show up on the Face Sheet, etc. 
From Individuals, Contacts, View Contacts, click on the Change Type link to get to the screen below where you see "Is contact INACTIVE?".


Encounters / Appointments Changes

The "Important Dates" section on the Personal Info Page can get a bit lengthy for some if the individual has had several doctor visits, etc.

We also had a request today to include information from specific Medical Appointments (Encounters) on the Health Passport as a Medical History to be seen by physicians, etc.  (Even though some states may no longer require a Health Passport, you have told us that you are still using it, so it will remain on your menu.)

To take care of these issues, we have added two fields at the bottom of the Encounter add/edit form.  These have also been added to the Encounter Query so that you can edit these and get a quick look at which ones have been changed. 
We will implement the "Important Dates" change so that only encounters marked as "Yes" will be shown soon.  But for now, it will continue to show the last year's encounter plus those scheduled for the future until you have had enough time to edit these.
