COMPONENT/ENTRY POINT
COMPONENT/ENTRY POINT COMPONENT DESCRIPTION VARIABLES
$$ORCHK(DFN,TYP,PTR,LOC)
This call checks if the patient has an adverse
reaction to an agent defined by the parameters TYP and PTR.

**NOTE: Patch GMRA*4*46 was released on 05/24/2016 with a compliance date of
06/24/2016. This patch included the new $$ORCHK2 component, which is intended
to replace this component. New subscribers should use the $$ORCHK2 component.
A future patch will phase out the use of this component as subscribing
applications move to the $$ORCHK2 component.
VARIABLES TYPE VARIABLES DESCRIPTION
DFN Input
Patient's internal entry number (IEN) in the PATIENT
file (#2).
TYP Input
The type of agent to check. Possible values are:
"CM" - Contrast Media Reaction
"DR" - Drug Reaction
"IN" - Drug Ingredient
"CL" - Drug Class
PTR Input
The agent to check for. Possible values are:
If TYP="CM", PTR is ignored.
If TYP="DR", PTR is formatted as PSNDA.PSNVPN,
where PSNDA is the IEN to the
VA GENERIC file (#50.6) and PSNVPN
is the IEN to the VA PRODUCT file
(#50.68).
If TYP="IN", PTR is the IEN to the DRUG
INGREDIENTS file (#50.416).
If TYP="CL", PTR is the IEN to the VA DRUG CLASS
file (#50.605).
LOC Input
An optional location type flag.

If TYP="CM" and LOC is defined and greater than 0, the type of site that
documented the reaction ("LOCAL", "REMOTE SITE(S)", or "LOCAL AND REMOTE
SITE(S)") will be returned in the second caret piece of $$ORCHK.

If TYP="DR", TYP="IN", or TYP="CL", LOC is ignored.
$$ORCHK Output
For all values of TYP, $$ORCHK will be defined as
either an empty string if the parameters are incorrect or 0 if the patient has
no reactions to the agent defined by the TYP and PTR parameters.

The following additional values are returned depending on the value of TYP:

If TYP="CM", $$ORCHK will be defined as either an empty string if the patient
is not in the Adverse Reaction Tracking database or 1 if the patient has a
reaction to contrast media. Additionally, if LOC is greater than zero, the
second caret piece will contain the type of site that documented the reaction
("LOCAL", "REMOTE SITE(S)", or "LOCAL AND REMOTE SITE(S)").

If TYP="IN" or TYP="CL", $$ORCHK will be defined as 1 if the patient has a
reaction to the agent defined by the PTR parameter.

If TYP="DR" and the patient has a reaction to the agent defined in the PTR
parameter, $$ORCHK will be defined as either 1 or 2. If the patient has a
reaction to one of the ingredients in the agent defined by the PTR parameter,
it will be 1. If the patient has a reaction to one of the drug classes to
which the agent defined by the PTR parameter belongs, it will be 2.
GMRAING Output
The calling application should either NEW this
variable before calling this component or KILL this variable after it is no
longer needed.  If TYP="DR", this array will contain the drug ingredients in
the agent defined by the PTR parameter to which the patient has a reaction to.

Format:
GMRAING(NUM)="ING (SD)"
NUM - has a value of 1 for the first
ingredient and increments by one
for subsequent ingredients.
ING - the name of the ingredient.
SD - the type of site that documented the
reaction. Possible values are "LOCAL" if
only the current site documented the
reaction, "REMOTE SITE(S)" if only a
remote site documented the reaction, or
"LOCAL AND REMOTE SITE(S)" if both the
current and remote sites documented the
reaction.

If TYP="CM", TYP="IN", or TYP="CL", this array will be undefined.
GMRADRCL Output
The calling application should either NEW this
variable before calling this component or KILL this variable after it is no
longer needed.  If TYP="DR" and the patient does not have a reaction to any of
the drug ingredients in the agent defined by the PTR parameter (GMRAING is
undefined), this array will be defined. It will contain the drug classes of
the agent defined by the PTR parameter to which the patient has a reaction to.

Format:
GMRADRCL(NUM)="DCC^DCN (SD)"
NUM - has a value of 1 for the first
drug class and increments by one
for subsequent drug classes.
DCC - five character code assigned to the
drug class.
DCN - the name of the drug class.
SD - the type of site that documented the
reaction. Possible values are "LOCAL" if
only the current site documented the
reaction, "REMOTE SITE(S)" if only a
remote site documented the reaction, or
"LOCAL AND REMOTE SITE(S)" if both the
current and remote sites documented the
reaction.

If TYP="CM", TYP="IN", or TYP="CL", this array will be undefined.
GMRAIEN Output
The calling application should either NEW this
variable before calling this component or KILL this variable after it is no
longer needed.

If TYP="IN", this array will contain the PATIENT ALLERGIES file (#120.8)
internal entry numbers (IENs) that match the ingredient defined by the PTR
parameter as subscripts. If TYP="CL", this array will contain the PATIENT
ALLERGIES file (#120.8) IENs that match the class defined by the PTR parameter
as subscripts.
Format:
GMRAIEN(120.8_IEN)=""

If TYPE="CM" or TYP="DR", this array will be undefined.
$T Output
$T will be defined as 1 (True) if the patient has an
allergy to an agent defined by the TYP and PTR variables, else it returns 0
(False).

**NOTE: As of August 6, 1996 this variable is no longer supported.
$$ORCHK2(DFN,TYP,PTR,LOC,RETURN)
This call checks if the patient has an adverse
reaction to an agent defined by the parameters TYP and PTR.
VARIABLES TYPE VARIABLES DESCRIPTION
DFN Input
Patient's internal entry number (IEN) in the PATIENT
file (#2).
TYP Input
The type of agent to check. Possible values are:
"CM" - Contrast Media Reaction
"DR" - Drug Reaction
"IN" - Drug Ingredient
"CL" - Drug Class
PTR Input
The agent to check for. Possible values are:
If TYP="CM", PTR is ignored.
If TYP="DR", PTR is formatted as
PSNDA.PSNVPN.LPTR,
where PSNDA is the IEN to the
VA GENERIC file (#50.6), PSNVPN
is the IEN to the VA PRODUCT file
(#50.68) and LPTR is the IEN to
the DRUG file (#50). If PSNDA is
passed in, then PSNVPN is required
and LPTR is optional. LPTR may be
passed in by itself, but the caller
must include two preceding periods
(i.e., "..1068").
If TYP="IN", PTR is the IEN to the DRUG
INGREDIENTS file (#50.416).
If TYP="CL", PTR is the IEN to the VA DRUG CLASS
file (#50.605).
LOC Input
An optional location type flag.

If TYP="CM" and LOC is defined and greater than 0, the name of every site that
documented the reaction and when each site documented the reaction will be
returned in the second caret piece of $$ORCHK.

If TYP="DR", TYP="IN", or TYP="CL", LOC is ignored.
RETURN Input
Name of array in which to return order check
messages. The name cannot be RETURN.

If TYP="DR", data is returned in the named array.

If TYP="IN", TYP="CL", or TYP="CM", RETURN is ignored.
$$ORCHK2 Output
For all values of TYP, $$ORCHK2 will be defined as -1
if the parameters are incorrect, an empty string if the patient does not have
an assessment or 0 if the patient has no known reactions to the agent defined
by the TYP and PTR parameters.

The following additional values are returned depending on the value of TYP:

If TYP="CM" and the patient has a reaction to contrast media, $$ORCHK2 will be
defined as 1. Additionally, if LOC is greater than zero, the second caret
piece of $$ORCHK2 will contain the name of every site that documented the
reaction and when each site documented the reaction.

If TYP="IN" or TYP="DR" and the patient has a reaction to the agent defined in
the PTR parameter, $$ORCHK2 will be defined as 1.

If TYP="CL" and the patient has a reaction to the agent defined in the PTR
parameter, $$ORCHK2 will be defined as 2.

The calling application should either NEW this
variable before calling this component or KILL this variable after it is no
longer needed. If TYP="IN", this array will contain the drug ingredients in
the agent defined by PTR to which the patient has a reaction to.
