The Contacts feature in the AWARDS Medical module enables users to record contact information for clients, such as emergency contacts and next of kin. It also provides users with the ability to generate customized reports of the data contained in the contact records.
NOTE: Contacts information can also be accessed from within individual client face sheets if the face sheet has been configured to allow users to do so. Please keep in mind that any changes made to contacts information via the Medical module are reflected within the face sheet, and vice versa.
The Contacts feature is available to users with the following permissions:
Program Chart Access
Display Any Chart Records Buttons
Display Chart Records Profile Button (optional - to work with contacts info from within client face sheets if the face sheet has been configured to allow it)
NOTE: Permissions are assigned using the Permissions Maintenance feature. If you do not have access to that feature and need a permission listed here, please contact your supervisor or your local Help Desk for assistance.
