NPR Report Writing Tips: June 2011

by Joe Cocuzzo, Vice President – NPR Services

Formatting Phone Numbers (MAGIC or Client/Server)

In data export, you often get a specification that looks like this:

Field Length
Patient’s home phone 15
Patient’s Street 30

Often, the party receiving the data has a very specific required format for a telephone number, which they don’t bother to describe in their specification. They don’t realize that a telephone number in the MEDITECH HCIS can be any string that fits in the box.

Tip1

If we sent the IATRIC,JOE home phone number of “DO NOT CALL ME” to most vendors, they would reject the record and then reveal their secret phone number format requirement.

This month we will describe a phone number formatting utility that can take Meditech’s phone number data (any string) and return a desired format. If you want to skip all the geeky stuff and go right to our Client/Server or MAGIC report library and get the utility, feel free – I won’t be offended.

The utility accepts three arguments:
A is the phone number data
B is an optional default area code (in case the phone number data is only 7 digits)
C is an integer to control the format returned:
1 = NNN-NNN-NNNN
2 = (NNN) NNN-NNNN
3 = NNN-NNN-NNNN x NNNN
4 = (NNN) NNN-NNNN x NNNN
5 = NNNNNNNNNN (all digits)
6 = queued string |0 = area code |1 = exchange |2 = number

You could modify the program if you need a format that we did not think of.

The utility uses the “not tilde” syntax to remove all but the digits from the phone number data and then parses the phone number into an area code, exchange, number and extension, then puts the pieces together according to the format requested. If the data contains less than 7 digits, nothing is returned.

The ‘~ syntax is a variation on the use of the ~ “translate” command.

The translate operator takes each character of the string on the left, takes its ASCII value, and goes to that position of the string on the right and if a character exists at that position, the character is substituted, if nothing exists at the position, a space is substituted.

This is why “lower case”~$.L.TO.U returns LOWER CASE. The $L.TO.U is a system string that looks like this:

  !"#$%&'()*+,-./0123456789:;<=>?@ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ[\
]^_`ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ{|}~

The $L.TO.U and $U.TO.L system strings are a MAGIC platform feature. In C/S you use STRING@Tr.l2u or STRING@Tr.u2l instead of STRING~$L.TO.U and STRING~$U.TO.L

It contains upper case A-Z in the positions 97-122 so that a-z get converted to A-Z.

Using ‘~ (not translate) takes each character of the string on the left, takes its ASCII value, and goes to that position of the string on the right and if a character exists at that position, the character is substituted and if a ASCII 255 exists at that position the character is stripped.

In our utility we build a string that contains just the digits and a D(255) for every other position from 0-127.

The ‘~ allows you to build a “filter string” and remove all the characters you do not want, without needing to process each character of the source string in a loop.

Tip2

The macro call is %MIS.zcus.is.phone.M.format(A,B,C)

Here is some sample output of the various conversion schemes, including the syntax of the calls used.

Notice in the call to return the area code, exchange, number, and extention as separate queued pieces (format 6) the program does assignment to a list of local variables in {}

This is the equivalent to:
%MIS.zcus.is.phone.M.format(@phone,978,6)^RESULT,
RESULT|0^AREA,
RESULT|1^EXC,
RESULT|2^NUM,
RESULT|3^EXT
But %MIS.zcus.is.phone.M.format(@phone,978,6)^{AREA,EXC,NUM,EXT} is a much more compact way to write it.

Tip3

NPR Report Writing Tips

by Joe Cocuzzo, Vice President – NPR Services

Avoiding Fragments (MAGIC this time. . . )

Last month we showed how to cross applications without using fragments in a Client/Server (C/S ) NPR report. This month it is MAGIC’s turn.

The “official” technique for crossing applications in an NPR report is to write another report as a fragment and call it via the utility program %Z.rw.fragment. The fragment then takes over and
prints, or puts some data in /R.FRAG.VAL, which you use in some computed fields or an “MV” array back in the main report to print the data from the other application.

Fragments allow you to cross applications without needing to write any loops, but they carry a sizable performance penalty. Also, it is more difficult to maintain a main report and one or more fragment
reports, especially as the fragment calls tend to be hidden in line checks, ECB attributes, or computed fields.

This month we will show a MAGIC version of a patient export from Abstracting with patient address information from MRI.DRC.

Last month we showed how to avoid fragments in C/S by using the %Z.rw.fragment program with no “A” argument (that is, no report name) or the %Z.link.db program to open the MRI database. In MAGIC we cannot use Z.rw.fragment in this way, and the Z.link.db program does not exist. Instead, we can use the %Z.link program to open the prefix we need.

NOTE: If you are unfamiliar with opening and managing prefixes, you should develop your report in the TEST environment and make sure it performs properly before running it in LIVE. If you want
to learn more about the MAGIC programming language generally, MEDITECH has an “Introduction to MAGIC” and a “MAGIC Reference Manual” that you might be able to request.

Tip4

We use @mri.urn as the HK1 sort, so the local variable mri.urn (ea) contains the patient’s medical records urn. This means that if we open the MRI database, fields stored by the patient’s medical records urn will be available. Notice that ? is the prefix the translator will use for the MRI.DRC fields we want to retrieve.

?prefix

We use a sort in our report on the mri.urn of the patient, which means we will have one HK1 region on our report per patient, and we will suppress the detail section of the report. In a macro called
before the printing of the HK1 region we will open ? to the MRI datafile and get the patient’s address fields and put them in local variables.

MEDITECH has a utility program that you can use to open any prefix to an application data or dictionary file. The arguments are in the source code at the top of the program, so you can use the F4 key (get) and put \Z.link in the lookup box and see them:

\Z.link

The first thing we do is “close and stack” the ? prefix. This will allow us to re-open it back to the Abstracting data file once we have retrieved the address information from MRI.

Then we call the %Z.link program, passing the prefix in quotes (“?”), the application (“MRI”), the data file (“%.MRI.data”) and the database (“MRI.”_(@.db# “1.”)). We build the database name out of the
1th dot piece of the current database concatenated with “MRI.” So if the abstracting database is “ABS.STL” we would pass “MRI.STL”. If you have an Abstracting or MRI database that does not correspond in this way, you will need to adjust the code accordingly.

After we have ? “open to MRI”, we can get the address fields and put them in variables. We also check to see if the patient is expired, so we can set a flag to use in a LC to suppress such patients.

Finally we “close and unstack” the ? prefix, with the command C(?U). Although this is a “close” command, the ? prefix is re-opened to Abstracting when this is executed. The reason is that the “unstack” command “restores the prefix to its previous state.” That means that C(?U) and O(?U) do exactly the same thing. C(?U) has the advantage that it is not blocked by the NPR customer RW syntax checker.

How much faster is the “nofrag” approach to a report using a fragment?

At one MAGIC site, selecting a year’s worth of IN visits, the non-fragment report took 94 seconds to retrieve 5761 records:

A fragment version of the same report, run for the same set of records, takes five times longer:

NPR Report Writing Tips

by Joe Cocuzzo, Iatric Systems Vice President – NPR Services

Avoiding Fragments (Client/Server Only)

The “official” technique for crossing applications in an NPR report is to write another report as a fragment and call it via a utility program %Z.rw.fragment. The fragment then takes over and prints or puts some data in /R.FRAG.VAL that you use back in some computed fields or an “MV” array back in the main report to print the data from the other application.

Fragments allow you to cross applications without needing to write any loops, but they carry a sizable performance penalty. Running our example report for one month at a LIVE site took 3.7 minutes to export 855 patients. A fragment version took more than twice as long to export the same set of records. (Also, it is more difficult to maintain a main report and one or more fragment reports, especially as the fragment calls tend to be hidden in line checks, ECB attributes or computed fields.)

In MAGIC, because there are only 10 prefixes, crossing applications without fragments is more complicated, requiring the programmer to “stack” or save prefixes open to one application, open them to another, retrieve data, then “unstack” or re-open the prefixes to the original application. A mistake will cause your report to crash or end prematurely. A mistake in a report called by a standard routine (a custom OE order format, a MAR, an eMAR or a PHA profile fragment) may cause applications to misbehave.

In Client/Server (C/S), MEDITECH creates unique prefixes per application, so it is possible (and relatively easy) to open all applications needed at the start of a report and have all data, indexes and programs available in the same report.

This month, we will show how to write a Client/Server Abstracting report that goes from Abstracting to MRI to get patient address information. This is a typical “fundraising” type report, which often needs to include patients who have been purged from ADM. ABS data does not purge and is nicely indexed by discharge date and patient type. (You could write the report in B/AR, but that would spoil our nice example.)

Step one is to select a detail segment and index:

We want inpatients for a discharge date range and the “dis.date.x” will allow us to do an index based selection by @pt.status and @dis.date.

We want to de-duplicate our list, and send just one record per patient, so we suppress the detail region of the report:

In Report Writer classes, I call this a “Nancy Reagan” report as in “Just Say No to Detail.”

To print one record per patient (versus one per account) we add a KEY region for mri.urn, after we sort the records by name.

You could either use a Header Key or a Trailer Key for mri.urn, the report functions identically with either option.

Then we set up selections:

We want the “IN” patients for a dis.date range, and only patients 18 years or older. This is typical for a survey or fundraising.

We also do not want to send to expired patients, and we don’t want to just screen out @discharge.disposition NE “E” as you might have a patient with prior visits in your pool of records, so we will use a computed field to check the patient’s final discharge disposition in MRI:

In the picture, we make a computed field for each column header, with the “VAL” equal to the text we would like to see for each column. If we typed the column headers into the picture, the text would not include a delimiter. If we use computed fields, our FD footnote will provide the desired delimiter automatically.

(Side note, in October 2008 one of our tips describes a utility Z macro that could be used for both C/S and MAGIC reports to automatically produce header fields. You can check it out at: http://www.iatric.com/Information/NPRTips.aspx?ID=138&FileName=updates-Oct2008.pdf That utility uses the field name or whatever you put in a HEADER= attribute as the column header and you just call it in the HR from an ECB or LC or footnote.)

Next we add fields from MRI.PAT and MRI.DRC to our field list, and place them in the HK2 region:

Then we need to create our computed field that excludes expired patients. We check to see if the discharge disposition stored in MRI.PAT has been flagged as Expired in the MIS dictionary. Most hospitals use “E” and just have one code, but it is just a bit safer and more universal to check the flag.

(Side note, MAGIC MRI has a field @exp date that can be used to indicate the patient died outside of the hospital. This field was created way back in release 4.6 or so. Since C/S MRI was based on 4.5, it lacked (and still lacks) this field. This means that C/S sites do not have an easy mechanism to flag patients as expired outside of the hospital.)

Do not be confused by the fields @expire.date and @expire.time in MRI.PAT (both platforms), these are dates used for MRI purges.

You might wonder how the report has the value of the mri.urn so that the field @MRI.PAT.discharge.disposition can be found:

Recall that we included a sort in our report of @mri.urn. The translator creates a set of loops through the temp sort index (or the permanent index if you do not alter the sorts) using the local variables from the data definition. This means that in the HK2 region, the value of “ea” is available for each patient.

If you watch the translation messages, you can see what the local variables are going to be for your report:

The macro needs to be “attached” to the report with a footnote, along with the footnotes we need to make the report a tab delimited download.

And if we run the report, we get a nice tab delimited download file. The little squares are the tabs. Tab delimiters have the advantage that they won’t ever be found in data, unlike commas, pipes, or semi-colons. Plus they save one mouse click in the Excel text import Wizard.
