Test results can be output to reports. Report templates may be created in MS Word, allowing the end user to operate in a familiar environment.

The user may create and modify report templates to adjust them to the desired content and style. These templates can be virtually anything. They can contain numerous patient-related fields (name and address, hospital name, etc.) which will be updated automatically whenever the template is used.

Audiqueen sends all patient and centre related data to MS Word in a generic format. 
The user can pick the fields he wishes to incorporate into the template. 
MS Word will automatically replace the generic field with the personal data of the patient.

Create a report template

Report templates define the lay-out and structure of the report. Audiqueen offers you the ability to customize these reports. To do so,  open Audiqueen, login, load a patient and press the Print 
button. 

Press the ... button at the righthand side of the Print window.

The Report Management screen appears. Press ‘Copy Report’ to open Report Details for a new report. The new report is based on an existing report and can be edited to your own liking. If you have not created your own reports before, you will start editing from the Audiqueen Default Report. Press Open to view the report template.

MS Word opens, showing the template which you are about to customize. You are now able to customize the report. You can change the layout, replace the logo, edit headers, footers, body text, etc. You will notice that some text is enclosed by brackets like «PatientLastName». These are Merge Fields. They will be filled out by Audiqueen when printing a report. If you want to add more of these fields, select the ‘Mailings’ tab and press ‘Insert Merge Field’.


The template contains a bookmark "PicturePlaceHolder". This is where Audiqueen will insert the graphical output of the printed results.


You may move this bookmark to a position of your liking, but you should be careful not to remove this bookmark. Otherwise Audiqueen will not be able to print reports based on your template.


When you are finished customizing your report template, press ‘Save As’ in the Office menu.  Pick a name for your template (e.g. "Clinical Audiometry Report.doc") and save the document on your desktop.


If some computers in your network are still using earlier versions of MS Word, it is recommended to save the template as a Word 97-2003 Document. Otherwise these computers will not be able to print reports.

  

Close MS Word and return to Audiqueen. Press the ‘Replace With...’ button and browse to the document you just saved onto your desktop. Give the report a new name (e.g. Clinical Audiometry Report). If you want this report template to appear only when printing specific types of test results, select the desired test type. Next, press ‘OK’. The report template is now available for printing.
