  • Amaron klanten die reeds met WORKFLOWER werken, kunnen op AMARON beroep doen om de COVID-formulieren beschikbaar te maken in Workflower. Dat wil zeggen met zoveel mogelijk pre-fill op basis van de beschikbare koppelingen. Hierbij zal ook een takenlijst (voor het aanvullen van cruciale gegevens: ICE-contact, beroep, enz) mogelijk zijn. AMARON biedt ook overzichtslijsten ter opvolging intern. Van zodra het formulier compleet is, kunnen we ook een koppeling maken die mappings naar bv SNOMED-CT toepast en het bericht in het juiste formaat zet en klaarzet voor verzending (of zelf verzenden, TBD per instelling).
