Cognos2 Service Starter
Cognos2 Service Starter is used as part of Using Cognos2 to keep track of patients to list the patient services that came in on the Cognos EPR Report and facilitate getting new records started, or update existing records with new service info. It's part of Cognos2 can be opened with the "CSS" button on the Main Form (CCMDB.accdb).
Cognos2 Service Starter can be opened with the "CSS" button on the Main Form .
Use this to figure out which service records in Cognos don't have an entry on your laptop yet, and to start an entry for it. Lines with a white plus don't have a profile for this pt on this laptop yet. Lines with a pink plus already have a record, but may need a new one or a new Service tmp entry.
Use the "exclude" button to remove a single service/time combination; if the same pt shows up again for the same service with a different time, a new line will show.
Use the "View exclusions" button to see lines that have been excluded; this is by hospital MRN so search/filter with that.
Use the O and + buttons to open resp. add records. Meanings of colours are at the bottom of the screen. The buttons will open the record to the Patient Viewer Tab Cognos ADT2, where other service or unit entries for that record can then be entered.
Why does this not contain unit info?
Doing so would introduce clutter and additional lines since unit starts and service starts don't always align. See CUS for unit starts.
Which lines in CSS require action
As of the version rolled out 2020-12-31 and future, all lines in CSS require action. Initially records stayed on this list, but now they will come off the list once their service entry is dealt with. To get a record off the CSS list, either enter the service entry with the exact dttm, or exclude it. Once you are done entering records for the day, CSS should be empty.
The "W+" toggle button filters to only records with a white plus, ie no entries on laptop for that pt yet. Now that records that are dealt with will come off the list, this button should no longer be very useful.
Cognos Import Button
There is a button in the top right corner of CSS that allows anyone who has the Cognos data email to import it. There is no process for this yet, and it will generally not work for collectors. It's just a contingency tool for now.
