The current version of the DENMIS Users Guide
will provide dental personnel with the information
necessary to effectively use DENMIS. The manual
contains sign-on, data entry, screen format, and
sign-off procedures. The structure of this manual is
designed to assist the user in reporting provider
productivity through the Dental Information Retrieval
System (DIRS) in a timely manner.
DENTAL INFORMATION RETRIEVAL
The Daily DIRS record (formally known as
NAVMED 6600/11) is designed to give providers a
record of treatment performed daily, as well as time
involved in patient care and nonpatient care functions.
Every provider in a DTF keeps track of the clinical or
laboratory procedures he or she does. These
procedures are recorded on a daily DIRS form and
turned in at the end of the workday. Figure 2-4
illustrates a blank daily DIRS form that is used by a
dentist for operative or general dentistry. Your
command will have other specialized forms depending
on where you are assigned. For example, if you were
assigned in the X-ray department, your daily DIRS
form would have descriptions and codes to identify
X-ray procedures you perform. The daily DIRS forms
are produced locally for each DTF. Each providers
procedures are compiled at the end of each month and
submitted via DENMIS.
