I. IRIS EDV3 Edit
      Program
               IRISEDV3
What is the IRISEDV3?
 A program used to run edit checks on the
  Intern and Resident Information System
  (IRIS) diskette
 Available at no charge to hospitals
 Provides all major edit checks that will be
  done by your CHGME FI


                                                36
           IRISEDV3 - Setup
Setup of the IRISEDV3
   Obtain all necessary files:
     Edv3inst.exe
     Db5lib.exe
     Readme.doc
   Program should be on computer’s hard drive
                    This is a MUST:
     Read the installation instructions (Readme.doc)
             BEFORE beginning installation!
         IRISEDV3 - Setup
 First Time Use
  The FIRST time the program is opened,
   complete “Data Management” from Main Menu
          IRISEDV3 - Setup
 First Time Use (cont.)
  Data Management
     Setup Administrative Data
     Rebuild Data Indexes
   Be sure to save (“S”) set-up and exit (“X”)


     During Step <2> Rebuilding Data Indexes –
          Screen may flicker. This is okay!
IRISEDV3 – Process Data
 <1> Capture IRIS Data Submitted
  Ensure diskette with IRIS files
   (M3XXXXXX.dbf and A3XXXXXX.dbf) is in
   the disk drive (usually “A”).
  Verify provider number is correct.
 <2> Import Captured Provider Data into
  Test Shells
  Automatically completed by program
IRISEDV3 – Process Data
 <3> Evaluate and Edit Imported Provider Data
  Provides on-screen EDITS during processing




                          Assignment End Date
                           is after FY End Date
                               (12/31/2004)
IRISEDV3 – Process Data
 <4> Print Report of Evaluation and Edit
  It is optional to print reports




       Default = <2> Print All Records
       IRISEDV3 – Reports
 Report Sections
  Part I – New Records that Passed all IRIS
   Edits
  Part II – Records that Failed One or More
   IRIS Edits
    e.g. Assignment date outside fiscal year
  Part III – Invalid Records
    e.g. Assignment record with invalid or blank
     fiscal year begin date
    Part III may also include any duplicate records
     in the Master File
    IRISEDV3 – Reminders

 IRISEDV3 cannot be used to change
  data. It is only capable of edit checks.
 IRISEDV3 does not check for zero
  values or blanks in the Full Time/ Part
  Time Percentage (%) and GME
  Percentages (%) fields of the IRIS
  files.
     IRISEDV3-                 Conclusion
 IRISEDV3 will greatly improve your chances of
  submitting a good IRIS/IRIS Proxy, but it will
  not guarantee complete success.
 The CHGME FI may determine that an
  IRIS/IRIS Proxy diskette is still incorrect even
  though it cleared IRISEDV3 edits.
   Example
     Full Time/Part Time Percentage (%) was entered
      as the portion of the year the intern/resident was
      at a hospital instead of the type of residency slot
      he/she filled.
