|1||VA-PALS||OSEHRA||In Process||The VAPALS project, which is classified as an Enterprise Wide Initiative by the VA Office of Rural Health, is designed to increase access to early detection lung-cancer-screening programs throughout VA. It requires the installation of a Vista-based patient-management system developed in collaboration with software professionals who have extensive experience supporting VA applications and the I-ELCAP (International Early Lung Cancer Action Plan) team. The I-ELCAP team has been researching early lung cancer detection and treatment for over 20 years.||June 2019|

The modification ensures that only active allergies will be selectable from the GMR ALLERGIES File (#120.82) and
only active sign/symptoms from the SIGNS/SYMPTOMS file (120.83).

|VFD*15.0*123 - Auto Resize Margins to fit Terminal Size||DSS||Many modern applications that use terminals (e.g. Midnight Commander, vim, emacs) are able to resize themselves to take all the available real-estate on the screen. This has not been done in VISTA world by and large, except by creating special terminal types. The changes in build VFD*15.0*123 make a few adjustments in %ZIS3, %ZIS4, and VALM0 and VALM1 in order to be able to use all the available screen real estate.||M||June 2017||3|

Contrary to its name, VPE is not only for programmers. Many people perform technical tasks from programmer mode because it is so powerful. Think of VPE as enhanced programmer mode and then you will see that it is ideal for anyone who regularly operates in programmer mode.||M||October 2017||3|
|Patch XU*8.0*10001: Better VistA support for running on GT.M||OSEHRA||This patch provides the following features:
* Many bug fixes to Kernel Routines that work with GT.M, including many speed optimizations.
|OSEHRA||A list of notes for a patient in the right hand side of CPRS is supposed to
contain the Local Name of the note; VHA Enterprise Title. Due to an error in
the code, the retrieved VHA Enterprise Title is either not display or displayed
incorrectly. This patch fixes this so that the correct VHA Enterprise Title is
|Enhanced XINDEX for analysis of all M code stored in Data Dictionaries supported by KIDS (Revision 1)||OSEHRA||It has been found that XINDEX doesn't run or report on all VistA components that can be contained within a KIDS build. This creates errors of omission when trying to find other code references or compliance with the SAC.||M||March 2018||3|
|Enhanced XINDEX for analysis of all M code stored in Data Dictionaries supported by KIDS (Revision 2)||OSEHRA||It has been found that XINDEX doesn't run or report on all VistA components that can be contained within a KIDS build. This creates errors of omission when trying to find other code references or compliance with the SAC.||M||March 2018||3|
|Drug Accountability Fix for bug #R17623029FY18||DSS/OSEHRA||PSA DISPLAY LOCATION already has code to not print drugs that have been
inactivated and have a balance of zero. The problem is that a balance of zero
was not achievable since drug accountability still kept processing orders for
the inactivated drug from Outpatient, resulting in negative balances. Routine
PSAOP3 was modified to mirror the existing logic in PSADAI to exclude
inactivated drugs for the Drug Accountability location.
|PSJ*5.0*10001||OSEHRA||Disallow zero UNITS PER DOSE for dispensed drugs in Inpatient Pharmacy when
accepting/verifying an order in Inpatient Pharmacy Listman menu.
|DI*22.2*10001: Variable Pointer navigation incorrectly returns empty results||OSEHRA||Users who query Fileman for data can be given missing results if the query
contains a variable pointer relational navigation reference. This is the case
in a frequently queried field, the OBJECT OF ORDER field in the ORDER file. For
example, setting a condition of OBJECT OF ORDER:PATIENT:AGE30 will fail to
retrieve patients above 30 years of age if a. another patient with the same
name exists or b. the patient's name is not unique within the first 30
characters. If the results of such a report are used clinically, it will lead
to at least not printing data on patients; or at worst completely missing
them since they were not printed on the report--something which could have some
clinical significance to the health of the patients.
|Log4M||OSEHRA||The XTMLOG* routines provide a Log4M capability similar to Log4J. The logging commands can be embedded in the code and activated by initializing logging in one of several different ways. Otherwise, the logging commands are checked and then ignored.||M||June 2018||2|
|Patch XU*8.0*10001 & XU*.0*10002: Better VistA support for running on GT.M||OSEHRA||* Many bug fixes to Kernel Routines that work with GT.M, including many speed optimizations.
* IPv6 Support for GT.M.
* Better and faster System Status report.
* Support for GT.M on macOS and GT.M on Cygwin x86-32.
* Implementation of previously redacted code for cryptography in XUSHSH.
* Broker Multi-threaded Listener for GT.M.
* RPMS Entry Points support in %ZISH plus sundry other entry points for use by PSN*4.0*513.
* ZSY has gotten a lot of new features, including an option to examine currently running jobs.
|PSN*4.0*10001: Port PSN*4*513 to be in a reasonable shape for the VistA Community||OSEHRA||The purpose of this project is to port PSN*4*513 to be in a reasonable shape for the VistA Community. The package was released for use in the VA with several shortcomings||M||August 2018||3|
|Non-Kernel Fixes to FOIA VistA to enable it to run outside of the VA (Revision 1)||OSEHRA||This repository provides minimal fixes to FOIA VISTA code, in order to allow for a functioning VistA instance. These fixes are needed for both Cache and GT.M||M||September 2018||4|
|Non-Kernel Fixes to FOIA VistA to enable it to run outside of the VA (Revision 2)||OSEHRA||This repository provides minimal fixes to FOIA VISTA code, in order to allow for a functioning VistA instance. These fixes are needed for both Cache and GT.M||M||September 2018||4|
|Port of HealtheVet Web Services Client (HWSC) to GT.M/YottaDB.||OSEHRA||This is the port of HealtheVet Web Services Client (HWSC) to GT.M/YottaDB.
Previously, HWSC has been a purely Cache Only package due to its extensive
use of Cache Objectscript. All functionality available on Cache has been
ported with the exception of support for WSDLs/SOAP messages.
|Patch XU*8.0*10001, *10002, *10004: Enhanced VistA Kernel||OSEHRA||This patch provides the following features:
* Many bug fixes to Kernel Routines that work with GT.M, including many speed optimizations.
|libcurl GT.M/YottaDB Plug-in||OSEHRA||This C code provides an interface between YottaDB/GTM and libcurl. I developed it because it was getting to be too hard to maintain a performant HTTP library in M. I specifically needed it to provide all the newest features of TLS support.||M||January 2019||2|
|XT*7.3*10002: Optimized HTTP[S] Transport for GT.M/YDB and Cache||OSEHRA||This patch provides optimized HTTPS transport for VistA. It does that by
using the libcurl binding for GT.M/YDB (https://github.com/shabiel/fis-gtm-plugins/tree/master/libcurl)
or using the %Net.HttpRequest Cache Class to perform HTTP communication.
|PSN*4.0*10001 & PSN*4.0*10002: Port PSN*4*513 to be in a reasonable shape for the VistA Community||OSEHRA||
|OSEHRA||This revision adds ICDEX, which is missing a QUIT||M||March 2019||4|
|Patch XU*8.0*10001, *10002, *10004, *10005: Enhanced VistA Kernel||OSEHRA||*10005: $$BL and $$BE^%ZOSV for UTF-8 support, $$ENV^%ZOSV to get an environment variable from the OS, XPDUTL patch support to 10 digit patch numbers (overlay XU*8.0*672)||M||April 2019||3|

## Changes for version 15.0
- Syntax Higlighting in editor and viewer (not turned on by default; go to ..PARAM to turn it on)
|Allergy/ADR Data not correct for Merged Patient resulting in Patient Safety Issues due to missed allergies||OSEHRA||When two patients are merged, and a. the from merge patient has
allergies, and b. the merged to patient has no allergy assessment or
no known allergies, the resulting patient gets invalid data in the
ADVERSE REACTION ASSESSMENT file (#120.86). As a result, the merged
patient will not show previously recorded allergies in CPRS; and no
allergy order checks take place in CPRS.
The supplied patch fixes the underlying issue in the routine GMRAMRG
