Below is an alphabetical list of the fields and options located on the Diet Information - Data Entry page. To jump directly to the information for a specific field or option, press <Ctrl+F> to access your browser's search field and enter the name of the field/option in question.
NOTE: Because the Diet Information feature is highly configurable, you'll see a gear icon next to all fields and options in this list, indicating that they are optional (and therefore may not be displayed in your AWARDS database), and in some cases that other aspects of the field/option (such as drop-down selection lists) can be adjusted. For more information on the ways in which this data entry page can be configured, see the "Diet Information" portion of the Medical Module - Implementation Requests Form. To request changes detailed there, complete the form and submit it to [email protected]
Dietary Need / Restriction Selections | Details
Click each dietary need/restriction drop-down arrow and make the necessary selection. Available diet type options may include:
For each option where a selection is made, a corresponding Details field is available for the purposes of recording additional information as needed.
In this field, record the date on which the diet ended (or is to end), if applicable. Type the date using mm/dd/yyyy format, or select the date using the available date picker drop-down.
Number of Calories
In this field, type the number of calories the client is allowed per day.
If the diet being recorded has not yet started, click the Pending toggle to set it to "Yes." When this option is set the Start Date field will accept today's date or a future date; otherwise, the start date must be today or earlier.
NOTE: When this option is set, pending diet records will continue to display as pending until a user sets the toggle to "No" and updates the record.
In this field, record the date on which the diet went into (or should go into) effect. Type the date using mm/dd/yyyy format, or select the date using the available date picker drop-down.
TIP: The start date must be today or earlier unless the optional Pending checkbox is selected. When Pending is selected, the start date must be today or a date in the future.
