The AWARDS Medical module Diagnostic Tests feature is an optional database enhancement that enables users to enter, update and delete diagnostic test information, as well as to view read-only diagnostic test reports.
NOTE: Diagnostic tests 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 diagnostic tests information via the Medical module are reflected within the face sheet, and vice versa.
Because the Diagnostic Tests feature is optional, it is not automatically available in all databases. When requested, it is turned on behind-the-scenes in AWARDS by Foothold Technology for individual programs. (Contact the Help Desk to provide access to specific programs in your AWARDS database.) Staff in programs for which the Diagnostics Tests feature has been turned on must have the following permissions in order to use it:
Program Chart Access
Display Any Chart Records Buttons
Display Chart Records Medical Button
Display Chart Records Profile Button (optional - to work with diagnostic tests 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.
