All FreeMedForms project apps can use the alert engine.
Alerts are messages of variable importance that are always presented in the same way to users.
There are two kinds of alerts:
Blocking alerts require the user to validate before continuing his actions.
These alerts are presented in a blocking dialog (nothing else than manage the dialog can be done).
User must then chose to:
accept the alerts, which sometimes invalidate his last action (eg drug interactions)
remind later alerts, when alerts allow this
override alerts, if this is possible. This action sometimes requires a user comment. In the case of drug interactions, when overriding an drug-srug interaction alert will let you prescribe the latest drug selected despite the interaction.
Are warning messages reported by icons and tool tips in the interface.
Their place are always the same so you do not search for them.
A color code reminds their level of importance. More important, the higher the color changes to red.
You may get detailed information of the alerts non-blocking, leaving the mouse on the icon, a tooltip appears with the alert details.
Clicking the icon takes you to a menu that reminds you of the category of the alert and its wording and allows you to:
Validate / accept the warning
To override the alert (when allowed)
To recall later (remind later) the alert (when allowed)
Edit the alert (when allowed)
You can create dynamic alerts. Dynamic alerts are adapted to the context of the application, the patient and/or the user.
You can use scripts to define several aspects of your alerts. These scripts provide access to the patient and the current user data.
In contrast, static alerts are executed without consideration of the context.
They run at a given date for a patient / user / application.
These spaces are always placed in the same locations to facilitate understanding of alerts.
The placeholders for non-blocking alerts are:
for patient patient related alerts, in the “patient bar” below the patient name and photography.
for the user is ….
for the application is found ….
These spaces are automatically updated with each alerts modification, patient changed or user changed.
