Accuro: Mapping Answers from an Ocean eForm to a Lab Value

  1. Tag your measurement in your Ocean eForm.

    • When you are building your eForms, if you "tag" a caption by surrounding a single word with "@" and ": $$" then the value will be available for mapping using EMR field mapping.
    • An example can be found in the screenshot to the right or in the note generated by this standard PHQ-9 questionnaire.
  2. Create a lab value in Accuro for your Ocean answer.

    • Log in to your Accuro and enter the EMR section.
    • Click on the green plus sign in the "Labs" area to create a new lab test.
    • This will open up the Lab Tests dialog box, where you can add a new lab test by clicking on the green plus sign.
    • This will open up the Edit Lab Tests dialog box, where you can add a new lab test result by clicking on the green plus sign.
    • This will open up the Lab Results dialog box, where you can add a new lab test result by clicking on the New button at the bottom.
    • This will open up the Edit Result dialog box, where you can define the data type and units.
    • Leave the "Source Code" field blank.
    • Click the green plus sign to add a reference range for your lab result (if applicable).
    • Click "OK" when you're done editing your result.
    • You should now see your new lab test result appear in your "Edit Lab Test" dialog box.
    • Click "OK" to save your new lab test.
  3. Create the corresponding lab value in your Ocean Portal.

    • Log in to your Ocean Portal and navigate to the Admin tab.
    • Enter the "EMR Field Mapping" section.
    • Add a new row and name the "Tagged Field" and "EMR Field" the exact same thing that you named your lab test.
    • Be sure to save your changes.
  4. Test out your new custom lab value.

    • Now, if a patient completes a questionnaire with your lab value, the measurement will then be set in the "Labs" section of their Encounter Notes section of EMR section of Accuro.
