Using Your Keyboard Tab: Move from one control to another Shift + Tab: Reverses the order and moves focus back to the previous control Space Bar: Toggle on Check boxes
Using the Key Board ‘All board’ method of keyboard navigation l l Reduces the need to switch between the keyboard and the mouse during the data entry process Includes: l l Ctrl + S (save) & Ctrl + N (new), etc. Type ahead logic l Used with combo boxes for pick lists Example: By typing RI in the State combo box the drop down menu automatically advances to Rhode Island. Pressing the Tab key will then select Rhode Island.
Using the Keyboard l Includes (cont. ): l Drop down menus using up/down arrows l l l Once focus (the cursor) is on a menu the up/down arrows or Page Up/Page Down keys may be used to move within the pick list Upon finding the correct choice pressing the Tab key will accept the selection Add on the fly (AOF) short cuts l For fields that accept Add New options, pressing the Shift + 9 key will access the ‘add on the fly’ process for that field. Example: When pressing Shift+ 9 in the Attendant field the AOF screen to add an attendant will appear.
Visual Cueing is the process of changing the background and text colors to let the user know where there is a problem (any fields that are bright yellow remain unresolved) TER default consists of a yellow background color with black text “The objective is to “to eliminate the yellow” Disabled Field that has Focus Unresolved Field Resolved Field
Status Bar The Status Bar is used to help identify fields and issues with the current record on the registration screen. The Status Bar is broken down into four main frames and is located at the bottom of the Registration screen 2

Unresolved Field List How to check the ‘Record Status’ –The records status of all fields may be checked by clicking on the fourth frame from left to right on the status bar. -Click on “Update Record”
Unresolved Field List You may view a list of the birth fields that are unresolved for a particular birth record and jump to any unresolved field that is listed.
Edits and Cross Checks Range edits examine an entry made for a given field and compare it to two different thresholds. Range edits include Hard Edits and Soft Edits l Hard Edit The information is not accepted and the user must change it before the field will be resolved l Example: The date of birth of a newborn is more than a 600 days prior to the current system date. The user would receive the following hard edit check:
Edits and Cross Checks Range Edits (cont. ) l Soft Edit The information is questioned. This would be similar to asking “are you sure? ”. The user must verify that the information is indeed correct before the system will proceed. l Example: The date of birth of a newborn is more than four days prior to the current system date. The user would receive the following soft edit check:
Edits and Cross Checks are more sophisticated because they compare two or more fields and determine consistency among them. Cross Checks also have Hard and Soft Edits Cross Check Hard Edit Example: • If the child’s date of birth and the mother’s date of birth are entered as the same date, the user would receive this cross check. • If the information remains unchanged and the user clicks OK, this message will appear: This Hard Edit will not resolve until one of the fields are changed with a correct date.
Edits and Cross Checks also have Hard and Soft Edits (cont. ) Cross Check Soft Edit Example: • The estimated gestation period is inconsistent with the birth weight criteria, the user will receive this message. • This soft edit cross check will allow the user to say ok without editing either field. It is simply verifying that this information is correct.
Mandatory to Save Fields l l l These fields must be completed before the record can be saved for the first time These fields include the following: • Mother’s Medical Record Number • Child’s Date of Birth • Child’s Plurality • Child’s Birth Order If any of these fields are left blank and a Save is attempted, the following message will display:
Mandatory “To be Resolved” Fields l l l These fields may be left blank and unresolved at any point in time but the record will never be considered resolved as long as they remain blank The record can be saved and the unresolved fields can be completed at any time The following notice will appear if a mandatory field is left blank: If Yes is selected, this notice will only appear once, regardless of how many mandatory fields are left blank.
Mandatory vs. Non-mandatory Fields l l l These are fields which may be blank because they cannot be answered. For example, the middle name field is non-mandatory, because some people do not have middle names. Therefore, there may not be an answer to this field so it must remain blank. If the child's middle name field was left blank, the following message would display: Pressing No will leave this field blank and resolved.
Duplicate Record Check The operator will be alerted of a duplicate record when these fields match an existing record. At this point the record will not be permitted to be saved “as is” l l l Medical Record Number Childs Date of Birth Order – At this point the operator could do one of the following: • Abort the current entry • Retrieve the existing record • Correct the present record –Example: When entering data for twins, if the operator mistakenly enters the wrong birth order, this message will appear. In this case, correcting the birth order field will make the record unique.

Library Maintenance Tables • Enter Attendants & AOF • Enter Certifiers & AOF • Assign PIN numbers
Library Maintenance Tables Provide the capability for users to maintain library tables used during data entry. Provide a ‘pick list’ of choices for related items and to validate data entries. Reduce data entry time by automatically filling in associated information. A facility’s location, for instance, will automatically be entered on a birth record when a specific facility is selected from the Facility library table
AOF Entries (Add On the Fly) AOF deals with the possibility that the option needed is not found in the available “pick list” Examples where AOF’s can occur include: l Attendant/Certifier l Facilities l Towns l State/Foreign Country l Zip Codes The user will begin an AOF by either choosing (Add New) from the drop down list or by typing Shift + 9
AOF Entries (Add On the Fly) Once the AOF screen has appeared, the operator is able to create a new option for the item in question. Not all pick list fields support the AOF process. l For example, the COUNTY fields including County of residence and County of birth will not allow the use of an AOF. This is an example of an AOF screen for Certifier
Attendant/Certifier Maintenance The names of individuals who either deliver babies or certify the birth record can be added either directly through Library Maintenance or through the AOF process l Attendant/Certifier Maintenance can be accessed from the Birth menu under Library Maintenance Contents of this table are specific to the facility where entered A Certifier who was entered through the AOF process will have to have the PIN entered through this process –NOTE: It is not possible to certify a record without a PIN
Attendant/Certifier Maintenance l The Attendant/Certifier Maintenance window is shown below: When entering an individual into Attendant/Certifier Maintenance a role must be chosen: l Attendant l Certifier l Infant Attendant l Attendant/ Certifier/Infant Attendant or Facility Admin. Designee l “Display in Lists” is an option which when checked allows the name to be displayed in drop down lists
Attendant/Certifier Maintenance Pin Number Assignment Assign a four digit pin number to the certifier under Library Maintenance / Attendant/Certifier

Releasing Records Unresolved Fields List Saving Record Legal Release Statistical Release
Unresolved Fields Records List Click on Updating Record Check for any unresolved items before attempting to release the record. All Fields Resolved must appear before a record can be released.
Saving a Record After all ‘mandatory to save’ fields are completed a record can be saved. l Records can be saved in various ways: l Clicking the Save icon l Using the shortcut keys Ctrl + S l Using the menu options Registration- Save.
Release Points Legal and Statistical Release Points l l l The data fields on a birth record are categorized as either legal or statistical. Once all of the fields in either of these categories have been resolved, the system will give the user the opportunity to release that portion of the record. Releasing the record implies that there are no remaining questions regarding any of the data fields in the category being released.
Legal Release Aspects that could temporarily prevent the legal release of birth records include the following: The legal release of a birth record requires that the record has been electronically certified by the individual designated as the certifier. l This process basically replaces the manual signature that the certifier use to place on a printed copy. The AOP may also delay the legal release of a record. Electronic Registrar supports the capture of the paternity information and the printing of this information. The Date AOP Sent field must be complete in order for the record to be legally released.
Legal Release When the record is saved and all legal fields are complete the user will receive the following prompt: Once a record has been legally released by selecting Yes at this prompt, the associated fields become disabled and the record can no longer be edited at the facility.
Statistical Release When a record is ready for statistical release, the user will receive the following message: Once a record has been statistically released by selecting Yes at this prompt, the associated fields become disabled and the record can no longer be edited at the facility.
