Report Writer & Patient Identifiers Update
Posted by , Last modified by on 24 March 2011 08:46 AM

As noted in November when the Report Writer 2 (RW2) tool was turned on within the VPHIB System, OEMS noted that the program would need additional modifications and encouraged the use of the original Report Writer.  OEMS has now reviewed and updated all the datasets, elements and fields available to us within RW2 and has made the following changes.

Please read the changes carefully and consider whether your agency needs to change/lower Report Writer permission levels for members of your agency.  The new Report Writer 2 datasets include more patient identifiable information, staff personal information, and billing information.  Directions for changing Report Writer permission levels can be found posted in the knowledge base.

  • Label names have been updated to Virginia nomenclature
  • Some label names were changed to help group like items (i.e. addresses)
  • The dataset “Agencies” has been disabled because it will not be supported in the future
  • The dataset “Agency Information” has been added to replace the agencies dataset.  This new dataset was created to improve upon the old. This will automatically be available to anyone at your agency that has a “Report Writer-Full” permission level.
  • The dataset “Billing” has been added.  The “Billing” dataset includes not only incident data, but also billing codes, insurance company information, disposition info, unit info, interventions, and complaint info.  This will automatically be available to anyone at your agency that has a “Report Writer-Full” permission level.
  •  The “Incident” dataset as been cleaned to update field names and eliminate unused fields to improve your ability to find fields.
  • We have added an “Injury Assessment” and “Medical Assessment” dataset.  These two datasets are that simply abbreviated incident datasets.
  • The dataset “Incident – Virginia New” has been disabled.
  • A “Signatures” dataset has been added which adds AMA info, some billing info, patient demographic info, and others.  This will automatically be available to anyone at your agency that has a “Report Writer-Full” permission level.
  •  A “Staff” dataset has been also been added to those who have the “Report Writer-Full” permission level. This will automatically be available to anyone at your agency that has a “Report Writer-Full” permission level.
  • The training/activities dataset has remained unchanged.
