Blood referral form registration wizard
|Reported by:||Nicklas Nordborg||Owned by:||Nicklas Nordborg|
We have received a large number of blood referral forms which should be registered in BASE.
Each form should be registered as a new 'Sample' with 'Blood' as it's subtype. The name of the sample is the case number + '.b' as suffix. The referral forms contain personal information so a patient should normally be created just as with the 'Personal information registration wizard'. We need three new annotation types:
- Date+time for the blood sampling
- Date+time when the blood was put in the freezer
- If the sample is a Serum/plasma sample (a Yes/No annotation)
It should be possible to register any number of 'Blood' samples for a single patient. To begin with the case number is usually the same as for the associated specimen tubes. But note that for a bi-lateral case there is only one blood sample with a randomly chosen case number. Thus, we should not link blood samples to cases.
In the future the blood referral form may arrive before the specimen tubes. Thus, we need to make sure that the 'Specimen tube registration wizard' and 'Personal information registration wizard' can handle this case. Basically, we need to extend the case searching algorithm to also look for blood samples.
Consent information should also be copied to blood samples, so we need to update all wizards to make sure this is handled correctly.
