      DESCRIPTION:   
        This patch corrects several miscellaneous data entry problems that
        NOIS #LON-0596-61759 reported a duplicate screen display when using
            like to place out of order, enter the following: 
                ECPAT Enter/Edit Patient Procedures
                ECBATCH Batch Enter Data by Patient
                ECBATCH PROC Data Entry (Batch) by Procedure
        7.  MSM sites:  Please ensure you answer YES when asked if you want 
            to move the routines to other systems and indicate the appropriate 
            CPUs.  Alternately, you can wait until the installation is complete 
            and move the routines listed in the ROUTINE INFORMATION section 
            to all systems.  
        the "Batch Data Entry by Patient" or "Data Entry (Batch) by Procedure"
        options.  After selecting a procedure, from the listing of available
        procedures, the procedure name is echoed back plus printing the name
        two additional times.  The additional printing of the procedure names
        has been eliminated.
       
        Problem 3.
        NOIS #LON-0596-61762 reported that when using the "Batch Data Entry
        by Patient", if an "^" is entered at the prompt "Is this information
        have been identified.
        correct?" the user is not exited from the option.  The user is then
        prompted to "Select Next Patient".  If a patient is selected the list of
        selected patients is numbered incorrectly.  Now when an "^" is entered
        at "Is this information correct?" a screen displayed alerting the user
        that "**NOTE**  No action taken. You must  re-enter the correct patient
        and procedure data that has NOT been filed during this session. ".  The
        user is then prompted to "Select Patient".
       
        Problem 4.
        After confirming a category using the "Local Category (Enter/Edit)"
       
        option the screen will display "??".  The option correctly updated the
        category name but was not updating the date created information when 
        the category was initially entered.
       
        Problem 5.
        NOIS STC-0696-40797 reported when creating an Event Code Screen the
        user is prompted with "Is the following information correct? YES// "
        when the data is listed previously on the screen.  The display
        message has been changed to read "Is this information correct? YES// ".
       
        Problem 1.
        Problem 6.
        The routines ECED and ECDSSYN killed the variable ^TMP("ECPRO")
        incorrectly.  The correct method killing ^TMP("ECPRO",$J) has
        been inserted.  This will prevent procedure lists from being
        deleted by mistake.
       
        Problem 7.
        When using the data entry options and selecting a procedure from
        the listing displayed, an <UNDEF> error could occur if "01" was
        entered instead of "1".  This error has been corrected.
        NOIS #OKL-0596-72092 reported an <UNDEF> error at SELC+1^ECBEN2A.

      the ECS extract fix.  Targeted release date for patch ECX*2*23
        This field will indicate the default clinic associated with workload 
        performed by this event code screen.  This clinic will be used as the
        hospital location for the EC system workload records for PCE filing
        purposes.  This clinic will also be the source for the stop code
        (DSS ID) needed by PCE.  This field should be edited for each event
        code screen that will send to PCE.  The clinic associated with the
        event code screen will be displayed to users during the data entry
        processes.

      NEW CROSS REFERENCES:   This patch includes a new MUMPS cross reference
      in the EVENT CAPTURE PATIENT file (#721).  The AD cross reference on the
      SEND TO PCE field (#31) controls the filing of the data that is ready
       
      for PCE.  
       
      NEW OPTIONS:  This patch adds two new options to collect, maintain, and
      report the data filing to PCE.  
       
       Nightly Data Feed to PCE [EC NIGHT] 
        This option controls the routine that sends Event Capture data 
        to Patient Care Encounter (PCE) software nightly.  The EC system 
        data is stored in the EVENT CAPTURE PATIENT file (#721).  EC data 
        that has been flagged to send to PCE will be picked and sent when 
          before installing this patch.  
      This patch implements new functionality in the Event
        this routine is run. This routine should run nightly, therefore 
        the rescheduling frequency is 1D.  The time to queue this option 
        to run should not conflict with system backup.  
       
       PCE Data Summary [ECPCER] 
        This option is exported on the Event Capture Reports [ECREPS] menu.  
        This Event Capture data summary lists, by patient, key information 
        that has been sent to the Patient Care Encounter (PCE) software.  
        The date and time of the procedure, procedure name listed in PCE, 
        volume of procedures sent, CPT and ICD-9 codes, associated clinic 
      Capture (EC) package to allow the non-interactive filing of
        and DSS ID (formerly stop code), and the provider of care are listed 
        on this report.  
       
      HELP FRAMES:  The following help frame is created.  
       
      ECPCER 
        This Event Capture data summary lists, by patient, key information 
        that has been sent to the Patient Care Encounter (PCE) software.  
        The date and time of the procedure, procedure name listed in PCE, 
        volume of procedures sent, CPT and ICD-9 codes, associated clinic 
      the EC system workload data to the Patient Care Encounter
        and DSS ID (formerly stop code), and the provider of care are listed 
        on this report.  
       
      SUMMARY OF THE PCE FILING PROCESS: 
       
      Each DSS Unit should be edited to update the SEND TO PCE information.
      If a DSS Unit is marked to send data to PCE, then when creating new
      event code screens within this DSS Unit or editing existing event
      code screens defined within this DSS Unit, a new prompt for an
      ASSOCIATED CLINIC is displayed.
      (PCE) software.  By utilizing this EC to PCE filing process,
       
      An associated clinic should be defined for each event code screen
      defined for DSS Units marked to send data to PCE.  For entering new
      event code screens, use the Event Code Screens (Create) [ECSCREEN]
      option. For existing event code screens, use the Procedure
      Synonym/Default Volume (Enter/Edit) [ECDSSYN] option.  These
      associated clinics will be displayed to users during data entry
      processes.  
       
      The data entry options Enter/Edit Patient Procedures [ECPAT],
      the need for duplicate data entry into both packages diminishes
      Batch Enter Data by Patient [ECBATCH], and Data Entry (Batch)
      by Procedure [ECBATCH PROC] are updated to ask users the PCE
      required prompts.  The DATE/TIME OF PROCEDURE field (#2) now
      requires time as part of every procedure date.  Each patient
      record entered must include a diagnosis code (ICD-9), an
      inpatient/outpatient indicator, and an active clinic.  Users
      manually entering this data must answer diagnosis, determine an
      inpatient or outpatient status, and accept the default clinic
      or select an active clinic.  If it is an outpatient encounter,
      users are also prompted to answer agent orange exposure,
      while supporting the transmission of workload data to
      ionizing radiation exposure, environmental contaminants exposure,
      and related service connection.  
       
      After the PCE prompts are answered, all appropriate patient
      records are formatted to file the data with PCE.  This formatted
      data string is stored in the PCE DATA FEED field (#30).  The
      flag to file this record is then set in the SEND TO PCE field
      (#31).  These fields exist in the EVENT CAPTURE PATIENT file
      (#721).  The nightly scheduled Nightly Data Feed to PCE [EC NIGHT]
      option will file the data with PCE and store a pointer to the
      nationally supported databases.  Outpatient data entered into
      corresponding visit created in the VISIT file (#9000010).
      Patient data records that have been filed with PCE and are
      later edited or deleted in the EC system will automatically
      send an update to PCE. For those records that should be filed
      to PCE but are not sent due to missing or incorrect data will
      store a reason in the REASON file (#33).
      EC, passed through PCE, updates the National Patient Care
      Database (NPCBD) at the Austin Automation Center (AAC).  All
      data entered into EC is passed to the Decision Support System
       
      (DSS) at the AAC using the VISTA DSS Extracts software.
       
      This is a mandatory patch and MUST be installed.  If your site does
      not anticipate sending Event Capture data to PCE, this patch still
      MUST be installed.  The only difference your users will see is both
      DATE and TIME are now required to enter workload data into Event
      Capture.  They will never see the additional prompts required for
      the filing of data to PCE.
       
       
      Three patches are required before installing this patch.  Event
      Three NOIS messages are addressed in this patch.  The AMIS Reports
      are modified to correct the problems reported in the following NOIS: 
       
       ATG-1196-30490 AMIS Report Producing Incorrect Totals

      installation instructions.  
      EC NATIONAL PROCEDURE file (#725): A new field called CPT
      (field #4) is added which should be edited for each local
      procedure entry that sends workload data to PCE.  A Current
      Procedural Terminology (CPT) code is required to pass EC
      procedural data to PCE.  Only the local EC procedures
      representing workload that your sites wants sent to PCE
      require an associated CPT code.  The option Local Procedure
      (Enter/Edit) [ECDSS PROCEDURE] is modified for users to edit
      this field for local procedures and is exported as part of the
       
      Event Capture Management Menu [ECMGR].
       
      Many new nationally defined procedures added in this patch
      include Speech Pathology  and Blood Bank.  Products for Social
      Work and Chaplain service have been completely redefined.  A
      generic CPT code is associated with each existing active
      national procedure entry.  Use the National/Local Procedure
      Reports [ECDSS1] option on the Management Reports [ECDSRPT] menu
      to review the new and updated entries in this file.   
       
      This patch will impact the DSS Extracts ECS Feeder Key report
       Field 4 - CPT 
        The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code equivalent for this 
        national or local procedure.  Each EC recognized procedure must 
        have an associated CPT code for filing with PCE.  
       
      DSS UNIT file (#724): The DATA ENTRY DATE/TIME DEFAULT field
      (#11) is modified to accept N for NOW or X for NONE as a date/time
      default.  T for TODAY is no longer a valid date/time default.
      All existing DSS Units using T for TODAY will be updated to use
      N for NOW during the installation process.
      and the ECS extract.  A DSS Extracts patch, ECX*2*23, is currently
       
      One new field, SEND TO PCE (field #13), is added which must
      be edited in order to activate the filing process. The option
      DSS Units for Event Capture (Enter/Edit) [ECSECT] is modified
      to edit these fields and is exported with the Event Capture
      Management Menu [ECMGR].
       
       Field 13 -  SEND TO PCE 
        This field controls the method of sending data, by DSS Unit, to the 
        PCE software.  If this field contains an O, only outpatient data, for 
      under development that addresses the ECS feeder keys for FY97 and
        this DSS Unit, will be filed with PCE.  If the field contains an A, 
        all records, for this DSS Unit, can be filed with PCE.  If the field 
        contains an N or is null, no filing will occur.  This field is exported 
        null.  
       
      EC EVENT CODE SCREENS FILE (#720.3): This file contains a single new field
      that allows the site to associate a clinic with an event code screen.
      This field is described below.

    DESCRIPTION OF ENHANCEMENTS:   
    The Event Capture module provides a mechanism to track and account for
    patient workload performed that is not recorded in any existing DHCP
    package.  These procedures and services are associated with the patient
    to whom they were delivered, the provider rendering the service or
    procedure, and the workload unit responsible for delivering the service.
    
DESCRIPTION
Event Capture is that portion of the Decision Support System (DSS) which
has been designed to capture the workload for those areas which do not
currently have a software system which may be extracted.  Such areas as
Chaplain, Canteen, and non-associated clinics can use Event Capture to
track their workload.
