Events can be used to specify important dates in the patient’s history.
They differ from keywords in that events are tied to a date. An operation or the start of therapy are events. A syndrome or a radiological anomaly or a genetic mutation are keywords.
Audiqueen contains a pre-configured tree of commonly used event types. The events themselves appear as reference lines in the chronological grid of test results for a patient. This makes it easy for the user to compare, for example, pre- and post-operative test results. These events can also be used afterward as query points for data analysis and statistics.
Surgical events appear as checkpoints (red lines) in the chronology of the test results.
Some events come with event parameters (event details). If entered, they can be used for data analysis and statistics.
Example of event details, in this case, details of cochlear implant surgery
Event details can be viewed in the result grid in the same way as result details.
Surgery & Non-Surgery
Event types can be defined as surgical or non-surgical (e.g. date of mainstreaming, start of chemotherapy, end of speech therapy, etc.). Surgical interventions will appear highlighted.
Assigning an Event to a patient
Click on the Add Event button at the right top of the grid to open Event Details.
Now retrieve the event from the list (1), fill out the details (2) (if available), the side (3), and the event date (3), and click on OK (4) to save.
You can also import events in bulk so that you can assign a series of events to a series of patients in one go. This can be useful, for example, if the EMR contains events and you want to copy them into Audiqueen. See this support page for more information.
Event Type Management
The user can manually define his own types of events.
For this, click on the Manage Event Types in the window above to open the Event type management.
Module to manage surgical and non-surgical events.
Now you can add, delete, modify event types, indicate whether an event is surgical or not, and place them in one of the group by dragging and dropping them.
This is also the place to define, modify or delete event parameters to specify or characterize additional event details.
Use the New parameter button to define a new parameter.
Example of a parameter belonging to the event type Cochlear Implant.
The parameter has the name Inserted Electrodes. Its values can be any free text,
while pre-set values 0, 1, 2, ...., 22 were already loaded to assist the user in picking the right one.
