Data Connection Setup - Workforce QA

Credentials from Workforce QA  to download result data files must be entered into DrugPak as part of this setup.  Contact your customer service representative at Workforce QA and inform them that you want to initiate the setup of a data transfer to DrugPak.

Once Workforce QA has configured your account for downloading result data, then Workforce QA will provide you with credentials to access that data.  Those credentials are entered into the Imports page of the Medical Review Officer record in DrugPak.  The credentials normally include Host, Port, Username, Password, and (possibly) Directory.

DrugPak will automatically create MRO and Laboratory vendor records representing those entities for imported Result records.  This new Vendor represents the information that was imported and should not be deleted.  The new Vendor may be merged with another Vendor record.  See the "Site Matching with Adjudicated Result Data" article for additional information.

Following the steps from the "Result Data Import Interface Configuration" article, access the Import page of the Medical Review Officer record that the Data Connection is to be set up.

To designate which Laboratory record in DrugPak should be assigned the Data Connection please take the following steps to clearly identify the Laboratory record.

  1. Select "Medical Review Officers" from the "Vendors" menu.

  2. Click on the name of the MRO from the list that the Data Connection is to be assigned to.

  3. Note the Name and the web page address (both circled in red in the following image).  Provide both the Name and web page address in the ticket, along with written directions that the indicated MRO record should be configured for a Data Connection with Workforce QA.
  4. Click on the "Imports" tab of the MRO record.

  5. Select "Workforce QA " in the Lab field.

  6. Click the <Save> button to save the configuration.
  7. To begin having DrugPak look for data sent from the MRO, click the <Enable It Now> button.
