Parameter Groups Overview

HealthCloudPOL enables you to add and edit Parameter Groups. Parameter Groups are simply multiple analytes (parameters) derived from the Master Parameters List, grouped together for reporting purposes.

HCPOL comes with several standard Parameter Groups that serve as group headers for Patient Report results.

The system returns to the Parameter Group Details screen with the selected Parameter now added to the Group. It is not necessary to Save, the Parameters are saved when selected.

Change or Remove Parameters from a Parameter Group

First, be sure the Parameters and Group you are modifying is not currently in process.

To change a Parameter in a Parameter Group, select the Parameter Group you want to modify and click the Edit link beside the Parameter you wish to change. Then simply select a different parameter in the same fashion as Add Parameters to a Parameter Group above.

To remove a Parameter from a Group, click the Remove link beside the Parameter you wish to remove.
