New Survival (SUR) Form Status
Got a patient you know is alive with no other data? Tired of overriding whole forms? We have a solution for you!
As patients get further out from transplant, collecting data becomes more difficult and burdensome for centers. In an effort to alleviate the reporting on the lack of data, a convenient new feature has been added to FormsNet3.
After the July 2018 FormsNet3 release, centers will have the ability to report only a recipient's latest
alive date of contact, thus eliminating the need to override multiple questions to get forms to complete status. Please note however, this feature should only be used when it is known that the recipient is alive and all efforts to obtain follow-up data on a patient have failed.
This feature will be available in the same location as where you would make a recipient Lost to Follow-up (LTF). Simply select if you are reporting Survival or LTF, then answer the applicable questions.
In addition, this new feature will update the corresponding disease inserts'
form status to match the 2100, (i.e. you only need to complete Survival or LTF once for the visit instead of on both forms, as users previously needed to do).
For future reference, details on this feature will be found in the Data Management Guide, under the FormsNet3 tab.
