The Out of Hours Rota System can optionally be linked to an Adastra Call-Handling and clinical system. By using cross reference tables set up in the Out of Hours system, the Adastra Duty Stations can be prepopulated each day with the GP's working each duty station.
The system is particularly easy to set up as the Out of Hours system will suggest the cross reference details, so the rota administrator only has to select the correct Adastra Reference where there are conflicting or ambiguous names.
How it works
Two cross reference tables are maintained on the Out of Hours Website. These first lists the GP's on the Out of Hours system and cross reference the same GP's on the Adastra system. The second lists the Adastra Duty Stations and cross references the shifts on the Out of Hours System.
To make it very easy to manage the cross references, the Out of Hours system uses information supplied by Adastra to pre-populate the GP's cross reference. In most cases, this completes the cross reference and nothing else need be done. However, if there are any ambiguous names, the system administrator can help the cross reference program.
The following is an example of a GP's cross reference.
The Duty Station to Shift cross reference is simply a number of drop down lists, where the administrator simply selects the appropriate Duty Station for each shift. This is normally only ever undertaken when there is a change of shift patterns or when the duty stations change.
