Audiogram Validation Test Script

This document is intended to describe and assist users with the process to validate audiogram results imported from another system.

Requirements

  • Compile a list of 8-10 different charts containing individual audiogram data from the legacy/existing system. Ensure the examples include varied complexity and multiple years of data, such as multiple Standard Threshold Shifts (STSs) and multiple baselines, to address potential import discrepancies that could arise.
  • Multiple monitors are recommended to assist with comparing legacy data to the data imported to WebChart .

Data Fields

Validate the discrete values imported to WebChart , listed in the table below. 

Note
Some charts/records may not have all data elements, and in some circumstances, there may be additional data to validate. Check with the WebChart superuser for details.

**Field** **Description** **Sample Data**
**Test Datetime** When the test was conducted (datetime).

Must be in this date and time format: YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS

NO
**Left Baseline**

Flags the test as a baseline for the left ear.

Options include:

  • YES
  • NO
YES
**Right Baseline**

Flags the test as a baseline for the right ear.

Options include:

  • NO
NO
**Calibration Date**

Records the last date (datetime) the audiometer was calibrated.

Must be in this date and time format: YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS

Validation Instructions (video)

  • Log into the WebChart system.
  • Navigate to the Quick View , and using the portlet, perform a Chart Search for a record from the list of 8-10 charts.
    Tip
    * Select the preferred search criteria, such as <strong>D.O.B.</strong>, <strong>Name</strong>, or <strong>EMP #</strong> (sometimes referred to as Medical Record Number, or MR#).
  • Type in the appropriate value and click <strong>Search,</strong> or press enter. (For more information and instructions on searching, see Basic Initial System Information or Detailed Searching in E-Chart.)
Tip
The number in parenthesis indicates the number of items in each tab.
Note
The Location may be listed as the name of the legacy system (e.g., OHM), and the Author/Administered By may be listed as Import User.

Reports (video)

The Audiogram Report and Audiometric Testing reports are particularly helpful in validating data between systems.

**Audiogram Report: **Shows details based on search criteria.

**Audiometric Testing Report: **Displays STS information and OSHA recordable status.

To access and utilize these reports:

FAQs

Q: Why were age-adjusted shifts not included in the import?

A: Because the Age Corrected Shift is a calculated field in WebChart , this is not a stored field.

Q: How does WebChart calculate shifts?

**A: **A shift is set when both of the following conditions are met:

The age corrected shift from the baseline is >= 10 AND

The average of 2kHz, 3kHz, and 4kHz >= 25
