Data sets go hand in hand with clinical questions. A data set is the set of possible responses to a single choice or multiple choice question - for example, if you create a question relating to frequency, you can create a data set with responses such as "Never", "Sometimes" and "Often" to use as possible answers.
You can reuse data sets for multiple questions, saving you time. For example, a data set with the possible responses being 1 to 10 could be used on any question where you want a score between 1 and 10.
RESULT: The data set is now ready for use and can be assigned to any single choice or multiple choice questions.
To assign a data set to a question, create any single choice or multiple choice question, then select the data set you would like to use as the possible responses. You can then add the question to clinical tool templates or customised patient profiles.
The Clinical Questions report allows you to track patients and their answers to clinical questions, including the date they answered them.
To run a clinical questions report:
Click Reports > Patient.
Click New Report at the top-right of the page.
In the Report Type field, select Clinical Reports.
In the Template Question field, type part of the question you are looking for and select it from the drop-down menu. If applicable, a new field will appear where you can optionally filter by the answer based on the answer data set.
(Optional) Add any other filters as desired.
RESULT: A report will be generated that shows patients who have answered the question, what their answer was and when they answered it.
