How to set .NET Preferences

In the TWAdmin workspace, navigate to Preferences on the VTB. From this location you are able to edit preferences at the Enterprise, Organizational or User level and determine if users will be able to override certain preferences on the front end.

Choosing Preferences Before Test Upgrade

This Excel Workbook is available to record preference decisions before the system is available. Preferences drive much of the system behavior so it is easier to complete the other build tasks if preferences are set first. Preference decisions often require input from multiple representatives of the clinical staff and can therefore be time consuming. For these two reasons it is sometimes helpful to start this decision process before the test upgrade. The preferences can always be altered after the clinical team sees the test system. The workbook also provides a record of your settings in the event a Hotfix or staff member changes them. We recommend only one person be allowed to change preferences and that same person maintain the workbook for change control.

First review the following articles to understand how each level is set, then review each preference description and record the organization's decisions in the workbook available via download below.

Pay special attention to article: Setting .NET Preferences at the User Level for Multiple Users via SSMT. This article explains how to use the last column of the workbook.

Setting Preferences at an Enterprise or Org Level

To set preferences for all users in a system and to establish which preferences users have the ability to personalize (set themselves), the administrator will set these preferences at an Enterprise level. The ability of users to personalize can only be set at the enterprise level, i.e. all users can personalize or no users can personalize. The ability of users to personalize cannot be set at the user level, i.e. it is not possible for one user to personalize and another not.

For this example, we are going to set how a user’s favorites are populated.

  1. To set preferences at the Enterprise level, select Enterprise from the Ent/Org/User Settings drop-down.
    Select Enterprise.jpg
  2. The preferences for populating favorites are located under the General preferences category. Select General from the Preferences: drop-down.
    Pref Nav to General.jpg
  3. Highlight the “Add Favorites Automatically” line
  4. Click on the cell under the header “Value”
  5. Setting the value to Y or N.
    • Y = when providers make selections in the ACI, those selections will automatically be added to their favorites list
    • N = when providers make selections in the ACI, those selections will not automatically be added to their favorites list.
  6. To allow the user to change this preference, keep the Can Override box checked.

  7. Click save in the lower right hand corner of the screen
  8. Login as a user and test to see if the system acts as expected

Setting .NET Preferences at the User Level via TW Admin > Preferences

For this example, the user level preference will be set to display the site selector when a user logs in

  1. Select 'User' from the Ent/Org/User dropdown to edit settings at the user level
  2. Select the organization the user belongs to
  3. Click the binoculars to seach for the user. The Select a User dialog will open
    LevelReplacement.jpg
  4. Set the search criteria. In this case: UserName - Starting With - Test
  5. Click binoculars to search
  6. All users fitting the search criteria will be displayed. Highlight the user to be edited
  7. Click OK
    UserReplacement.jpg

    The user level preferences will be displayed. Note that the User Can Override column is not available at this level. Only preferences with a value of user can override = Y will be visible.
  8. Preferences are grouped into categories. Select the preference category from the Preference dropdown. For this example choose the preference category General
  9. Select the preference row “Always Present Site Selector for User”
  10. Click on the cell under the header “Value” and select a value from the dropdown. For a description of each preference and what the values will do, refer to TW .NET Preferences
  11. Click save in the lower right hand corner of the screen
    PrefReplacement.jpg
  12. Login as a user and test to see if the system behaves as expected

Setting .NET Preferences at the User Level for Multiple Users via SSMT

In some cases, an organization may want to set a preference differently among users within the same organization. In this situation the best practice is to set the preference of the smaller group of users at the user level and leave the larger group of users at the org or enterprise level preference. These instructions demonstrate setting the site selector to appear at login for floating nurses who move from site to site, but not for anyone else.

  1. Determine which group of users is smaller and create a list of their usernames. In this case, the floating nurses are the only users in the organization who prefer to have the site selector appear at login so they are the smaller group.
  2. Set the Enterprise or Org level preference based on what the majority of users prefers. Most users prefer the site selector not to appear at login, so set the Enterprise or Org level preference to N
  3. Choose a member of the smaller group and set their preference at the user level in TW Admin. Test User is a floating nurse and wants the site selector to appear at login so set her user level preference to Y
  4. Log out and extract the category TW .NET Preferences using SSMT
  5. Use Excel to delete all rows except the one with 'Test User' under *HDRUserName
    Excel1Replacement.jpg
  6. Copy the setting to create as many rows as there are users in the smaller group
    Excel2Replacement.jpg
  7. Replace the *HDRUserName with the usernames of the smaller group
    Excel3Replacement.jpg
  8. Reload the table

How a User can set their own Personal Preferences

A provider can personalize their preferences from the clinical toolbar. For this example we are going to say that this user wants to include active problems in past medical history and automatically post those problems to the encounter summary.

  • Login as a provider
  • Navigate to Chart on the vertical toolbar
  • Select the arrow on the far right hand side of the Clinical Toolbar
    Ppref1.jpg
  • From the dropdown menu, select personalize.
    Ppref2.jpg

This opens the Personalize dialog box. From here a provider has the ability to change many individualized settings to suit their personal preferences.

Keep in mind - if the "User can Override" box was not checked in TWAdmin > Preferences for that preference, the user will see the preference greyed out in the Personalize menu. The preference "Double Click Action" demonstrates such behavior in the prior screenshot.

  • Navigate to the Problem Tab
  • Select “Problem include in PMH” and change the value to “checked for all”
    Ppref3.jpg
  • Select “post problem to encounter” and change the value to Y
  • Click on Save

.NET Preferences

V11 Preferences can be set in the TWAdmin workplace, by entering the value that corresponds to the Preference.

This list includes the net new preferences with v11.2.

Categories Preferences are grouped into categories. The categories are General, Meds, Meds/Orders, Note, Orders, Problems and Results. Specific information about each preference is listed below.

Audit level

Allows administrators to capture and track the following information about users’ activity in the Touchworks EHR application including:

  1. User name
  2. Patient name
  3. Patient MRN
  4. Access date
  5. Access time
  6. Device used (Web, PDA)
  7. Action time
  8. Action taken (viewed, printed,created, and/or faxed)
  9. WebFramework Page accessed

This setting determines the amount of information contained in the Audit Log Report. Please be aware that increasing the level of auditing increases the amount of data that is tracked and stored. Due to the nature of this, it can cause performance issues, so please be sure to test this before implementing in production. This is not seen often, but should be considered. These settings do not change the level of auditing on particular items such as notes. This simply changes what is written to the Audit log report.

*NOTE: ALWAYS SET TO HIGH AS OF 11.4.1

If set to High the audit trail will capture viewing, editing, creating, printing, and faxing of clinical items. If set to Medium the audit trail will capture editing, creating, and viewing of clinical items. If set to Low the audit trail will capture editing and creating of clinical items.

    • N- The patient is registered with Allscripts Patient Portal™, and if any of the Patient Preferred Communication settings are set to Patient Portal or Patient Portal & Print, exports of clinical information to Allscripts Patient Portal™ are not blocked. The Patient Preferred Communication settings can be set manually to Do Not Send-Patient is Adolescent to block automatic exports to Allscripts Patient Portal™ if necessary.

    LEGAL CONSIDERATION In some cases, you might need to block the automatic export of an adolescent patient's clinical data to the portal due to state or local laws regarding access to patient's health information.

    Patient Portal Registration Level: Patient Portal Registration Level

    This preference defines whether the patient the default level of communication patients can have with providers.

    • Provider setting means that a patient must register with each individual provider in the practice prior to any communication being allowed happen.
    • Organization setting allows communication with all providers once regardless of which provider the patient registered with originally. Additionally this setting also allows providers to send a CED without the patient having communicated and registers that provider for Portal communication within Touchworks.

    To implement "auto-registration" of providers and patients for Allscripts Patient Portal communication in Allscripts Enterprise EHR, there is an additional required step during the implementation process. The provider file that is extracted from Allscripts Enterprise EHR and loaded into Allscripts Patient Portal must be extracted from Allscripts Patient Portal and loaded back into Allscripts Enterprise EHR to make sure the provider portal IDs are filed in the application.

    Patient Portal Send Chart on Patient Registration

    • Note: Added in v11.4.1

    This preference determines whether a Continuity of Care Document (CCD) in Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture(CCDA) format document is sent automatically to the patient's portal account when the patient's portal registration is accepted in Allscripts Enterprise EHR™. The CCD-CCDA document is included in the nightly Auto-Chart Export to Portal batch job.

    • Y: A CCD-CCDA document is automatically sent to the patient's portal account when the patient's portal registration is accepted in Allscripts Enterprise EHR™.

    The patient's Patient Preferred Communication setting for Chart Update must be set to Patient Portal on Patient Profile Dialog for the CCD-CCDA document to be sent automatically. If the patient is not defined as an adolescent*. Chart Update is automatically set to Patient Portal when the registration is accepted. Adolescent is defined as: if the age of the patient does not fall within the age range set by the PatientPortalAdolAgeRangeLowYears and PatientPortalAdolAgeRangeHighYears preferences If the patient is defined as an adolescent, Chart Update is automatically set to Do Not Send-Patient is Adolescent and the CCD-CCDA document is not automatically sent to the portal when the registration is accepted.

    (Additional: The application only sends the CCD-CCDA document the first time the patient's registration for portal is accepted. Therefore, if the patient was already registered for the portal with Provider A, and then requests to be registered with Provider B, the automatic export of the CCD-CCDA is not triggered a second time when that registration is accepted (or it is not triggered again if it is accepted by default because the Patient Portal Registration Level preference is set to Organization). Updates to the chart made after the registration is accepted but before the Auto-Chart Export to Portal job for that day is run are included in the automatically exported CCD-CCDA. Chart updates that occur after the Auto-Chart Export to Portal job is run on that day, however, would trigger automatic export of the CCD-CCDA document on the following day.)

    Note Auto Freeze Note Output After Number Days

    Clinical Notes are often left in an un-finalized state for extended periods of time, allowing information from other encounters to inadvertently affect the content.
