Examples

Static Value

In the following example, the LabTest field will default to "PSA" and the LabQuality will default to "STD" when a value is entered for any field in the LabTest record.

   <LabTests RecordId="1">
       <LabDate></LabDate>
       <LabDateText></LabDateText>
       <LabTest NotNull="True" DefaultValue="PSA"></LabTest>
       <LabResult></LabResult>
       <LabUnits></LabUnits>
       <LabQuality DefaultValue="STD"></LabQuality>
   </LabTests>

Trigger Static Value

In the following example LabTest field gets populated with "PSA" and the LabQuality field get populated with "STD" when the user enters a chief complaint.

   <LabTests RecordId="1">
       <LabDate></LabDate>
       <LabDateText></LabDateText>
       <LabTest NotNull="True" DefaultSource="Encounters.EncChiefComplaint,1" DefaultValue="PSA"></LabTest>
       <LabResult></LabResult>
       <LabUnits></LabUnits>
       <LabQuality DefaultSource="Encounters.EncChiefComplaint,1"  DefaultValue="STD"></LabQuality>
   </LabTests>

Copy Dynamic Value (activate source)

In the following example, the LabTest date (LabDate) gets populated with the Encounter date (EncDate) when the user selected an Encounter date.

   <LabTests RecordId="1">
       <LabDate DefaultSource="Encounters.EncDate,1" ></LabDate>
       <LabDateText DefaultSource="Encounters.EncDateText,1" ></LabDateText>
       <LabTest NotNull="True"></LabTest>
       <LabResult></LabResult>
       <LabUnits></LabUnits>
       <LabQuality></LabQuality>
   </LabTests>

Copy Dynamic Value (activate sibling)

In the following example, the LabTest date (LabDate) gets populated with the Encounter date (EncDate) ONLY when a field in the LabTest record has a value.

   <LabTests RecordId="1">
       <LabDate DefaultSource="Encounters.EncDate,1" TriggerSibling="True></LabDate>
       <LabDateText DefaultSource="Encounters.EncDateText,1" TriggerSibling="True"></LabDateText>
       <LabTest NotNull="True"></LabTest>
       <LabResult></LabResult>
       <LabUnits></LabUnits>
       <LabQuality></LabQuality>
   </LabTests>
