If this is the first caregiver template you are adding, you should edit the preinstalled "Clinician" template before adding a new Caregiver Template.
Follow the procedure below to add a new caregiver template.
- Launch the BioT Console.
The console opens on the Templates list.
- From the Templates tab, click Add+.
- Select the Caregiver template type from the dropdown menu.
- Add a name and optional description for the template. Use a template name that reflects the caregiver type (for example, "General Practitioner").
- Click Next.
The General fields page is displayed with the list of built-in attributes.
General attributes include information that users want to keep about the caregiver. For example, one of the General attributes may be a Degree attribute which would describe the educational level.
Change any details in the built-in general fields as needed, or click the trash can icon to remove any unneeded field from the template (note that built-in attributes cannot be removed).
The following built-in General attributes appear in all new Caregiver templates:
Attribute type: Name
The full name of the caregiver.
Attribute Type: Email
The caregiver's email address.
Attribute Type: Phone
The caregiver's phone number.
Attribute type: Single Select
The specific qualification of the caregiver. Options given by default are:
- Medical Doctor (MD)
- Doctor of Osteopathy (DO)
- Physician Assistant (PA)
- Registered Nurse (RN)
- Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS)
- Nurse Practitioner (NP)
- Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)
- Medical Assistant (MA)
- No Degree
Attribute type: Paragraph
Any additional details about the caregiver can be entered in this field.
Attribute Type: Date
The caregiver's date of birth.
Attribute Type: Single Select
The caregiver's gender. Possible options include Male, Female and Unspecified.
Attribute Type: Address
The address of the caregiver.
Attribute Type: Locale
The locale in which the caregiver practices.
Attribute type: Entity
The organization which the caregiver is servicing.
Attribute Type: Boolean
If false, the Caregiver is not allowed to log in.
Attribute Type: Date Time
The time and date when the caregiver's record was created.
Attribute Type: Date Time
The time and date when the caregiver's record was most recently modified.
If your users need more attributes to keep about the caregiver, scroll to the bottom of the General attributes list and:
- Click + Add General Field.
- Click Please choose a name and enter a name for the new field.
- Click the Choose Type dropdown and select the attribute type from the list (see Attribute Types for a full list of types and their parameters).
- Complete the remaining parameters for the Attribute Type.
- For fields you want to define as obligatory, select Required.
For a field marked as Required, you will be asked to set a Default value. A default value is used when users want to edit the data of an existing caregiver, but there are some details they cannot enter, due to lack of knowledge or any other reason. In this case, they can leave the pre-defined default value and save their changes.
Default values can be used only when editing an existing caregiver. When users create a new caregiver, they must fill in all required fields with actual values.
For example, users who edit a caregiver's data might be required to enter a phone number. In case the phone number is unknown or unavailable, they can leave pre-defined default value for this field, demonstrated below.
When you have finished adding fields, click Create. The template is created, and you return to the template list.
You can click Cancel at any time to discard the template and return to the templates list.
