BIRTH CERTIFICATE CHANGES:
98-138 Attendant address, city, and other components of Field 13D are specifically prompted in the ATTENDANT LIST sub-option under HOSPITAL BIRTH RECORD.
98-142 The fields SSA1,SSA2, LFN can no longer be amended within the BIRTH CERTIFICATE.
99-069 The date of registration (Field 17) can be printed at the same time the LFN and its barcode are printed. If no date is entered during LFN ASSIGNMENT, then Field 17 is left blank.
99-116 The list override prompting has been revised for Fields 7 and 10 (Father's and Mother's State of Birth) to give the user more information on the proper procedure.
99-119 The HP LASERJET FORM ALIGNMENT sub-option under HOSPITAL BIRTH RECORD had been improved to allow adjustments by 1/8 of a line using the FSALIGN routine. The current methodology will be expanded from 21 to 96 combinations of horizontal and vertical offsets. The prior version of micro-adjustment using the FSHPLJ routine will no longer be supported. This has the side effect that nearly all sites will need to adjust their print settings in the device table following the Version 4.9 update by running HP LASERJET FORM ALIGNMENT and checking the print alignment.
DEATH RECORD CHANGES:
99-112 Some improvements have been made to the #BDxxx reports for birth-infant death matching.
CONFIDENTIAL MORBIDITY REPORT CHANGES:
98-125 A new standard report was created: #CMRZD=DISEASE BY ZIP CODE.
YEAR 2000 CHANGES:
99-026 Up to three choices for race of the father and mother (Fields 18 & 21) will be allowed. All choices must be made from a revised race list. New state-supplied birth certificate forms (VS-10D) must be used for all birth certificates printed after 12/31/1999, regardless of the date of birth of the infant. The following manager's message will appear upon the first Year 2000 logon:
DESCRIPTION: WELCOME TO YEAR 2000!
Up to three choices for race of the father and mother (Fields 18 & 21)
are now allowed. As a result, new state-supplied birth certificate forms
(VS-10D) must be used for all birth certificates printed after 12/31/1999,
regardless of the date of birth of the infant.
These new forms are identified by (REV 1/00) in the lower left corner.
If you have not received these forms, contact your local registration
district immediately and have them send the revised forms before printing.
These new forms will have slightly different spacing, so use the HP LASERJET
FORM ALIGNMENT under HOSPITAL BIRTH RECORD before printing.
99-121 A test has been added to verify that the computer transitions from 12/31/1999 to 1/1/2000 properly. If a BIOS malfunction creates a date earlier than the date of last logon, the following AVSS error message will result:
THIS COMPUTER HAS NOT TRANSITIONED FROM 12/31/1999 TO 1/1/2000 PROPERLY.
THE DATE CORRECTION MUST BE APPLIED MANUALLY.
THE SYSTEM WILL BE SHUTDOWN. GET TO THE DOS PROMPT (C:).
THEN CORRECT THE DATE BY TYPING 'DATE' AT THE DOS PROMPT.
ONCE THE DATE HAS BEEN CORRECTED, RESTART AVSS.
