What is Ol Monitor?   You already know but here is a quick presentation, feel free to share this:

(There is a link to download the ppt file at the bottom of online presentation)

ADT Error Log Report added:

The HRP module can now pull the ADT error log
Data from the ADT Error Log Report can be added alongside Ol Log and/or PL log data in any existing OL Monitor installation.  Or ADT error log data only can be displayed.  The error log typically contains a lot of duplicate messages, it's unsorted, hard to read, you have to let it print out periodically, etc.  All these issues are solved by Ol Monitor.  You can apply filters, sorts, and coloring to the ADT error log data to make seeing significant errors easy. Like the OL and PL log, the data is updated continuously so you will see errors as soon as they happen.
Somebody's job is about to get a whole lot easier!
See this blog entry for more info on trying out the new HRP module with ADT Error log:

Other report modules:

You may not have heard about the other 2 reports that OL Monitor can pull:

PL Module:

Unlike the standard OL log, the PL report module can view outstanding future (and current) uncollected (and collected) tests. This is useful for phlebotomy collections or giving your techs a little lead time to prepare for time-sensitive tests or tests that require prep-time as soon as they are ordered. Previous email news introducing PL Module:

There is a short video explaining how to configure the PL module here:

PL Module in online manual:


HRP Orders Not Processed:

With this report you can see outstanding tests that have not been sent over yet. Nurse collected specimens such as micro cultures etc appear here.  Orders  put in after the original orders without notifying the lab is one scenario where HRP is used.  HRP catches those little buggers and avoids the headache of missing tests.

-Added option to disable column click sorting.
-Fix for error: "Error in: cboTAT_Click #:9 Subscript out of range" when switching to using ini file after using registry as the settings location.  Windows ini file api can write an unlimited amount of text to an ini file however it can only read in up to 4095 characters. Go figure. Added check for > 4095 characters and alternate function reads in the whole line. Way to go Saint Alphonsus for inputting 45 turnaround times with 2000 tests in all defined!!

April 22 2014 (1.87j)
