All of the MIRCal application pages contain the same
three basic elements.
Each time you log on, you must create a reporting profile, which
includes a report period, facility name, and data type. That reporting
profile information shows up in this header. Use this information to
make sure you're working with the appropriate data type in the
appropriate report period.
The Main Menu
lists all of the MIRCal functions that you are authorized to use.
Access to functions is restricted based on your user type (Facility
User or Designated Agent) and roles. Different users will see different
menu options. We'll detail some of the functions later in this
training, but the main areas are:
||Used to exit from MIRCal for security. Inadvertantly
closing browser window results in 15 minute timeout before you can log
|Facility||Used to change the reporting profile.|
||Displays the Submission Status page, which shows
summary information for your data submissions.
||Used to submit data files to OSHPD or submit No
Data to Report.
||Used to enter individual records online and
submit them for processing. For Facility Users only.
||Used to view summary and detailed error reports.
These reports help you identify errors in your data.
||Used to add, correct, and submit records online
instead of submitting a replacement file. For Facility Users only.
|Extension||Used to request extension days and check status
||Used to maintain user accounts and facility
contact information. For User Account Administrators only.
Format Testing||Used as a tool to assist you in verifying that
your file meets OSPHD's file format specifications.|
||Used to change your user password, log out of
MIRCal, and access MIRCal support information.
