The Medical module Verification of Disability feature is an optional database enhancement used by Emergency Shelter programs to maintain verification of disability records, as well as to view customized reports of related data.
IMPORTANT! The Verification of Disability feature is only available to programs for which the program type has been set to "Emergency Shelter" under System Setup > Agency Program Information > Add/Edit Entire Program.
Because the Verification of Disability 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
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.
