The AWARDS Medical module Procedures feature is an optional database enhancement that enables users to enter, update, and delete records for client medical procedures, as well as to view read-only procedure reports.
NOTE: Procedures 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 procedures information via the Medical module are reflected within the face sheet, and vice versa.
Because the Procedures feature is optional, it is not automatically available in all databases. When requested (by contacting the Help Desk) it is turned on behind-the-scenes in AWARDS by Foothold Technology, and is available to users with the following permissions:
Program Chart Access
Display Any Chart Records Buttons
Display Chart Records Medical Button
Display Chart Records Profile Button (optional - to work with procedures 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.
