The introduction of Work Sites allows you to setup up work sites / sections for each Employer on the system.

Reports and statistics could be extracted based on Work Sites.

Audio Reportingaudiogram interpretation

  • A new report Missing Baseline Audit, lists all Patients that do not have one of the  regulator baselines on record; ie. Clinic /Entry, Regulation 171 (National Baseline), Regulation 839 (Milestone Baseline).
  • System calculated interpretations (eg. reportable shifts) are optionally printed at the bottom of the audiogram.

Exit Medical CoF

The following values have been added to the Exit Medical CoF:

  • Current & Baseline Audio PLH and ST
  • Current Spiro FEV1 & FVC


Additional fields have been made available on the UNI Integration staging tables for consumption by third-party or back-office systems:

  • Patient race and environmental temperature & pressure on Spiro

“Toast”audio calibration

Non-critical application notifications are presented as a “Toasts” (non modal, unobtrusive window elements used to display brief, auto-expiring windows of information to a user). This keeps the operator properly informed, without having to deal with annoying popups.
