Desktop Data Entry
What Is Desktop Data Entry?
Because data entry can be tedious and time-consuming, CladeHealth™ Tracker offers the option of using a unique desktop data entry system. This allows you to enter data via your computer keyboard and wirelessly push and store your entries into the app. You can start a secure Web session from any computer with an Internet connection to add information to the app. No extra software or additional cost is required.
The desktop data entry system provides the ability to add, modify, and remove information from the app. Information entered through the desktop data entry system is safe and secure; the information is completely removed from the server when you log off of the site.
Desktop Data Entry Instructions
CladeHealth Tracker offers the option of using a unique desktop data entry (DDE) system. This allows you to enter data via your computer keyboard and wirelessly push your entries into the app. This does not require extra software; you can start a secure Web session from any computer to add information to the app.
To get started with the DDE System, you must first have your iPhone/iPod active and start the application.
Once at the home screen, select the icon that looks like a cloud.
- Make sure the application stays on (it will not automatically go to sleep)
- Put the device in a convenient spot that it can be easily seen and handled
- Watch the screen until you get the connecting screen goes to the acknowledgement screen
At this point you may log in to the DDE System. You can proceed to the DDE System by clicking the login button at the top right of this screen. Make sure to select open link in a new window if you still want to see these instructions.
Once you have logged into the DDE System, you will see the list of all existing patients on the application. You will also have the option, if you have not reached the maximum number of patients, of adding whole new patient. You are unable to delete patients from the DDE System, but that can easily be done on the device after you have disconnected.
After you select a patient you will be taken to the main patient dashboard. From here you can update information, delete information, add new records, or return to the patient list.
Each icon on the left side of the dashboard corresponds to a particular icon on the application. Click on each icon to go to that category and a list of all items currently on the device.
Each list view allows to you see and edit an individual record, add a new record, or delete any of the existing records.
When viewing the detailed information for a record, you can select update to save the changes you have made or back to cancel and go back to the list view.
When finished making changes, simply click the home icon at the bottom left of the application window. This will exit the application. Make sure to logoff the website after to ensure your data is removed immediately from the server. No personal data will be left on the server.
