Family Health History

Previous Topic  Next Topic 

The AWARDS Medical module Family Health History feature is an optional database enhancement used to enter, update, and delete family health history records, as well as to view read-only family health history reports.

Required Permissions

Because the Family Health History 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 Family Health History 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

  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.
