Other Lookups, specifically Other Billing Lookups, Other Clinical Lookups, and Other Common Lookups, offer a way to maintain pick lists of simple items that consist of just a code and a description. Instead of featuring a special list window for each of these simple lookup types, SOS groups them in just a few expandable lists. As an example, here are the Other Billing Lookups:
Clicking Other Billing Lookups in the navigation panel opens the list on the right. Expanding several of the Lookup Types by clicking the little “+” button to the left of a type, you can see the existing lookup items of that type nested below the type description.
To add a new item of a particular type:
- Highlight the type description or any item of the desired type.
- Click the “New” button at the top left of the main toolbar (or right-click and select New on the pop-up menu).
- Complete the form with the desired code and description.
- And save, using Save and Close to save the new item and return to the list, or Save and New to save this one and immediately add another without returning to the list first.
