Clinical Assessment Tools
The following programs are derivatives of other web based tools available on the internet, but have been written specifically to be used with Vision 3, so that the final score may be recorded in a patient record. However, some may also be used as a stand-alone to assess scoring only.
These Products are intended to aid and supplement,
not substitute for, the expertise and judgment of physicians, pharmacists or
other healthcare professionals. All information is provided on the basis that
the healthcare practitioners responsible for patient care will retain full and
sole responsibility for deciding any treatment to prescribe or dispense for
all patients and, in particular whether the use of information provided by the
Product is safe, appropriate, or effective for any particular patient or in
any particular circumstance.

Request a Risk or Assessment Tool
Please feel free to contact us on either developing a new risk or clinical assessment program. If an algorithm is required this must be provided.
If you find that after a Vision update a script no longer functions as it did, please email us detailing which script and its issue and we will resolve it immediately and publish the new version.
If on a hosted server please make sure that you download and install this within your hosted environment, i.e. you must be able to see the Vision icon on your desktop.
- Click the "Free Download!" button
- Click "Save" at the Security Warning screen prompt
- Select a folder to save the file into and click the "Save" button
- When download is complete click "Open Folder" button. ( or open the folder yourself, i.e. previous step)
- Just double-click on any of the hotkey executable to run them.
Note: Some of these scripts may have a right mouse click option to either save to desktop or start up folder. However, if on a hosted site you cannot save it to the start up folder, therefore you must use either the desktop or add a link from within Consultation Manager.
Create a quick access link in Vision Consultation Manager
This will provide a button for your hotkey in a guideline or local index.
- Open Consultation Manager
- Press F12 on your keyboard to open the "Local Guideline Index"
- Click on the "Maintain" button in the guideline toolbar (shown as a pencil, ruler and set square)
- Click "Application" button on the new toolbar shown on the right of the screen
- Click "Browse" button and locate the folder where you saved the program
- Change "Files of Type" drop down list to shown "All Files"
- Select the program file (i.e. PHQ-9.exe)
- Click "Open" button
- Type a description such as "Start PHQ-9 Assessment"
- If you like buttons remove the tick from "Display as icon"
- Click "OK"
- Click on the "Maintain" button in the guideline toolbar (shown as a pencil, ruler and set square) to save
You have now successfully created a link to the script for all vision users in your surgery and you can use this process to add as many executable programs, website addresses and hotkeys as you wish to a guideline for easy access within Consultation Manager.
