HIMSA will start the New Year with a new module!
The new Journal Module will be ready for beta testing in January 2015
The Journal Module has received a major overhaul, for better stability and compatibility with Noah System 4 and Noah 4 modules. Here are some of the improvements that you can look forward to.
Common module design
HIMSA has redesigned the Noah Journal Module using the same design team as the Audiogram Module. This means that the module will operate in the same familiar and intuitive way as your other Noah software.
New Journal Entry Filter
In Noah, fitting and measurement modules also have the ability to create journal entries. It can therefore be difficult sometimes to see which module created the original journal entry.
The new Journal Module will clearly display which Noah module created each entry for your patient. You will also be able to filter, so that only journal entries created by selected modules will be shown.
Configurable print reports
The new Journal Module uses the same print report features as the Noah Audiogram Module and Noah System. Not only can you have your business name and logo on the report header, you can also choose up to eight demographic fields you would like to display on the report.
Below is an example of a Journal report header:
The new print report also allows you to print multiple journal entries on the same page – not just one page per entry.
A true Noah 4 module
The Journal Module now functions like other native Noah 4 modules.
For example, you can start up the Journal Module from the desktop by double-clicking on the icon. You can also switch patients from within the Journal Module.
More data security
To comply with data security standards, the new Journal Module will ensure that Journal entries cannot be deleted from within the module. This small change provides an important extra level of data security for your patient records.
