HERON Beaver release includes outpatient clinical services and negative microbiology improvements

Searching clinical services in HERON is no longer limited to inpatient with the introduction of ambulatory clinical services in the Beaver release. To search on a specific outpatient clinical service, go to Visit Details -> Clinical Services -> Outpatient Visits.

HERON Beaver release makes searching negative microbiology data easier with an improved hierarchy of terms.
