Welcome to the Instinct release notes page! These notes will provide information on the functionality of new features released this month.
🌞🍂 Daylight Saving Time
It’s that time of the year to “Fall back” for Daylight Saving Time. With this in mind, we’d like to share how Instinct handles DST for those who participate and what you can expect based on your region. Click here to see if/when your DST occurs!
Details on how Instinct works with DST are below. Please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Status Boards & Treatment Sheets
If you participate in DST, the 1AM hour will be displayed twice on the treatment sheet and when selecting a start time as shown below:
Following human medical best practices, all treatment orders will maintain their scheduled frequencies (ie, q2, q4, q6…) so that important treatments and their schedules are not altered.
This means any treatments originally scheduled for even hours will change to odd hours after 12AM (and vice versa) until (a) the patient is checked out or (b) the order is edited.
Scheduling a treatment to start on the first 1AM block will create an even hour frequency; where starting a treatment on the second 1AM block will create an odd hour frequency.
Don’t forget about our Bulk Edit feature to quickly reschedule any existing treatments after DST!
