Upcoming TEHDI eSP™ Trainings May 31st, June 11th and June 28th
To all Audiologists that screen and or provide diagnostics to infants and children. The Texas Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Program (TEHDI) is excited to introduce their newest feature, “Search Other Facilities.” It allows providers to locate patients and assign them to their case load. They are also providing an expanded menu of data elements available for search and export for both patients and providers, the ability to capture more data elements related to a patient’s mother, new tracking of modifications to a patient’s record in case notes, as well as some minor changes to the user interface and a bug fix related to generating letters. They are confident the changes to TEHDI eSP™ will improve your overall experience in using the application and in managing the care for your patients.
We would encourage you to join one of the upcoming TEHDI eSP™ trainings to learn more about the new enhancements. The trainings will be offered 2X per month on Tuesday (2nd tuesday of each month) and Friday (last Friday of each month) and will continue until August. The training is free and will last no more than 1 hour. This training will allow you to look up your child, find out what has been done and allow you to add test outcomes. A succinct hearing record will be available for each child. This will help all Texans as the Department of health will know which children have been cared for and which children still need to receive care. This will help Texans so that no child is "lost to follow-up". For more information contact DaShondra Daniels, email@example.com. She will provide you the call in number and meeting number for the training. She will also set you up for access to use this new tool in TEHDI eSP™.
The next training dates are May 31st, June 11th and June 28th.
