Required data defaults
Your practice can use Required Data defaults to make certain fields required on client or patient records. This means that staff members will not be allowed to save the record without providing information in the required fields.
Before you start
- If using the Controlled Substance Export template Cornerstone ASAP 4.2, select the Client Birthdate (YYYYMMDD) and Client Gender prompts as required.
Set up required data defaults
Navigate to Controls > Defaults > Practice and Workstation > Required Data.
Select (highlight) required data for the following field types, scrolling as needed to view the complete list:
- Client data
- Client prompts
- Account data
- Patient data
- Patient prompts
- Click Apply to save your changes and continue setting defaults or click OK to save your changes and close the window.
Note: It is recommended to be selective when setting required data. Too many required data fields can cause users to enter anything in a required field in order to save a record. This will lead to inaccurate client or patient information.
