Deliverable JIRAs Build 4.0.2.0 - Deliverable Descriptions
TXEDSS-1520 This is an improvement to the Contact Evaluation and Disposition report so that case managers can (1) be made aware of the current priority of the contact investigation and (2) made aware of the site disease so that resources and staff are distributed appropriately.  This can only be done if the anatomic codes are included in this report.
TXEDSS-1707 This improvement will enhance the HIV Initial Assignment and the HIV Surveillance assignment by adding additional rules that will drive assignments. 
TXEDSS-1757 This improvement will update the CRF product and extract to reflect CDC 2020 Address Type changes in eHARS. CDC is adding two new options to the address type drop down (military and other) list and is making the address type selection available for selection for all address fields (e.g. address at HIV diagnosis and address at AIDS diagnosis). Currently, the address type is only available for the current address section of the CRF.
TXEDSS-1087 This improvement will provide a feature for more efficient management of lab data that has been loaded through ELR as the Unknown Product due to incoming lab data and related reference code data definition.
