Function-specific Resolved Issues

Patient Chart / Immunizations / Sync Registry
Solution ID: 00008859

Issue:
The Kansas Immunization Registry (KSWebIZ) requires that the MSH-4 and RXA-11.4 populate the same value, which must be the location where the vaccine was administered. With this issue, OP 14 was populating the MSH-4 with the Facility Code of the location regardless of where the vaccine was administered.
Resolution:
Updated the software to ensure that, when OP 14 syncs with the KSWebIZ, OP 14 populates MSH-4 and RXA-11.4 with the same value and enters the location where the vaccine was administered in MSH-4.


Solution ID: 00008872

Issue:
For some Nevada Immunization Registry (Nevada WebIZ) Practices, OP 14:
1. Did not include the Site and Route codes in historical messages. This caused a warning message from the registry.
2. Entered an invalid date in OBX-14: 18991230.
3. Entered 999 in RXA-6 for Deleted messages.
Resolution:
Updated the software so that OP 14 successfully sends complete and correct data to the Nevada WebIZ. With these changes, OP 14:
1. Sends the Site and Route codes in historical messages.
2. Enters a correct and valid date in OBX-14: 18991230.
3. Does not enter 999 in RXA-6 for Deleted messages but sends the same RXA-6 that was sent for Add messages.


Solution ID: 00008847

Issue:
Instead of reporting the actual amount of an immunization given to patients, OP 14 was reporting every immunization as 1 ml.  
Resolution:
Updated the software so that OP 14 reports the actual amount of each immunization that Practices administer to patients. This includes changing the RXA-6 to reflect the accurate dosage (or 999 if it is historical or blank) and changing RXA-7 to display ML^MILLILITER^UCUM if RXA-6 is not 999 (instead of blank).


Issue:
Some Practices in Pennsylvania experienced the following issues with their immunization registries:
1. The interface was not sending ORC-3.2.
2. The completion status was missing from RXA-20 messages.
3. VIS and Funding Source had missing OBX segments.
4. The OBX-5 currently sent in the OBX segment was incomplete.
5. OP 14 did not send the OBX-4.
Resolution:
Updated the software to ensure that all Practices in Pennsylvania successfully interface with their state immunization registries. This includes:
1. Populating the ORC3.2 with the Facility Code of the Practice sending the message.
2. Ensuring that the completion status for newly administered vaccines is included in the RXA-20.
3. Adding an OBX for VIS and Funding Source as follows:
    * 30963-3 vaccine funding source
    * 30956-7 vaccine type
    * 29768-9 date VIS published
    * 29769-7 date VIS presented
4. Ensuring that the OBX-5 currently sent in the OBX segment is complete. sent for VFC Eligibility. This update fixes the formatting of this message to: “v--^ code description^code table.” For example, V02^VFC eligible Medicaid/Medicaid managed Care^HL70064.
5. Sending the OBX-4, which uses positive integers to group related OBX statements. With this update:
    * Having the same OBX-4 value ensures that the Presentation Date and Publishing Date are related to the VIS description
    * Funding Source and VFC Eligibility are related segments, although they do not share a direct mapping.
    * The pattern for the OBX-4 segment is 1-2-3-3-3, where:
      1 = Eligibility
      2 = Funding Source
      3 = VIS Description
      3 = Publishing Date
      3 = Presentation Date
Note: This update also hardcodes ORC-3.2 with 9999 for History of Chicken Pox.
