Are the Numbers Wrong? Measurement Routing

The Dashboard indicator queries use standard LOINC codes for mapping patient measurements. It may be necessary to adjust the current Measurement Mappings in OSCAR in order to ensure that the various Measurements Types are picked up by the queries. It is only necessary to map each of the LOINC codes in a 1:1 relationship.  The following LOINC codes are used for the following tests

Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) 58453‐2, 14563‐1, 14564‐9, 14565‐6

Colorectal Cancer Screening   FOBT, FOB, FIT

Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) 4548‐4

To keep the Dashboard standard its not recommended to alter the queries embedded in the XML files from OSCAR normal to account for how data is stored in your OSCAR instance.  If you need to do so please rename the indicator to show that its not stock but a custom indicator.
