Baseline Vital Signs added to the EMR

Baseline Vital Signs have been added to the ADL EMR

Vital signs (often shortened to just VS) are a group of the 4-6 most important signs that indicate the status of the body’s vital (life-sustaining) functions. These measurements are taken to help assess the general physical health of a person, give clues to possible diseases, and show progress toward recovery. The normal ranges for a person’s vital signs vary with age, weight, gender, and overall health.

The ADL EMR calculates the Base Vital Signs which gives an average of recent measurements taken when the patient is considered to be usual condition. These values are compared to the new measurements to determine if there has been a significant deviation in the reading compare to the Baseline values.

Significant deviations cause alerts to be triggered to bring the condition to the nurse’s attention. The Baseline Values are used extensively with the Interact Methodologies.

New System & Firewall Settings Recommended

Notice: Enhancements contained in the next and subsequent software releases
require new system software and firewall settings.

ADL recommends that, beginning with the next update, which is expected to be released within the next couple of weeks, the server running ADLUpdater should run the .Net 4.5 Framework or later. If an earlier Framework is used, some enhanced functionalities contained in the updates may not be available.

The following link explains how to check which version of .Net is installed: //msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh925568.aspx
To download the 4.5 installation software, visit //www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30653

Note: The .Net 4.5 Framework is not supported by the Windows 2003 Server. If the client’s ADL environment is hosted on a Windows 2003 Server, new functionality included in the next and future releases will not be available.

Additionally, the new web server uses port 5000 by default. This port must be accessible to computers on the private network running ADL clinical and/or financial applications. If using a firewall, this port must be unblocked.

If the client wishes to use a port other than 5000, ADL will configure the server to use the required port.

Please contact ADL with any questions you may have via e-mail (hotline@adldata.com) or phone (914)-591-1800.
