The Consent Module contains two submanagers: Consent Form and Patient Consent. From these two managers, users will be able to define consent forms in the system and enter consent information for an existing subject.
When the specimens associated with a patient have restrictions as defined in the consent module, users will be notified that restrictions exist. Users will then be able to choose to exclude that patient’s sample(s) from their experiment or override the restrictions.
From the Patient Consent editor, users can fill out consent questions for an existing subject in BSI. The patient consent editor allows the user to enter data through a form interface or through a table interface. The table view will allow users to enter consent data for multiple users at once with access to the Mass Change feature. This editor is accessible through the Patient Consent manager and through the Subject editor. Users will also be able to set the form status to Active, Inactive, or Terminated from this editor.
When a consent bearing question is given a value of False/No in the Patient Consent editor, this means that a user did not consent to the use of their specimens in some way. As a result, when specimens added to requisitions have the Subject ID associated with the consent form with negative answers, a warning will be generated telling the user that the subject has not consented to the use of their specimens in some way.
Typical workflow for entering patient consent data:
Create a New Patient Consent Record → Add new patient consent data → Save
