FRAX Calculator 2016

Created by David Page - This is a Falls and Fracture Risk assessment tool for OSCAR based on the FRAT and FRAX calculators. The use of this tool is at your own risk and requires your own clinical judgement. You first need to review the Power Point presentation to understand the decision support logic built into this tool which does not follow any Canadian guidelines. You need to look at the instructions for loading into your system and the use of Grease Monkey is highly recommended to simplify the process.

FRAX Calculator greasemonkey file
DO NOT load the grease monkey (FraxCalcultor.user.js) to OSCAR. --- This is a greasemonkey script to be loaded like other greasemonkey scripts - if you have not used greasemonkey scripts before please see the tutorial in the useful code section of the eforms in beta testing under greasemonkey scripts. ---- Load the greasemonkey script “Fracture_and_Falls_Risk_Tool.user.js” on all the computers that you want to use the tool
Additional code for the Lab requisition
Open “FRA Alert Code.txt” in a text editor (ie notepad or notepad++ NOT MS Word or any word processor) and then copy and paste the code into your Lab eForm. Just below “<!-- End of submit/print/reset buttons -->” is a good place for this.
Report by Template for determining the duration of bisphosphonate use
Load the Report by Template “DurationRx.txt” to Report by Template --- Open the report and look for the unique id number of the report (look in the URL of the browser window at the top) --- oscarReport/reportByTemplate/reportConfiguration.jsp?templateid= ??? --- Edit the eForm “Fracture and Falls Risk Advisor” and search for this line: + 'oscarReport/reportByTemplate/reportConfiguration.jsp?templateid=747')//this takes you to the report by template --- And change the templateid number to your own id number
Link to Oscar Manual for adding measurements
Link to the online manual for Oscar, specifically to the section on measurements
report title="Fracture risk extract with recommendations" description="Extract text data from eForms with the recommendations and handouts provided and the OST result"
A report by template that extracts data from the Frax eform. This report by template will need to be modified for each server. Wherever the report by template says fid = 1421 This will have to be edited by replacing 1421 with the fid for your eform. Open the eform and look in the address line - find the portion that says fid= The number after this is what you need to put in place of 1421.
