8.Audit Trail:


i.The Audit Log within Intelicode® was created to keep an audit trail of changes made to audits and other data. The Audit Log tracks many different events within Intelicode®. These events include creating, editing, and deleting data, viewing data simply by opening Visit Summaries, printing a report, or opening audits into the patient screen, and even user login information such as when a user logs in, fails to log in, changes a password, and more. Additionally, the Audit Log adds some security in which Intelicode monitors the data and shows indicators in the Audit Log if suspicious activity in the logs is detected. This includes logs being deleted or edited outside of Intelicode itself.

b.Opening the Audit Log:

i.You can open it through Visit Summaries by right-clicking on a visit and choosing “Show History”

*note that this item is only available if the currently logged-in user’s User Group has permission to view visit history. To check this, look under Mange Users and Manage Permissions in the Administrator Panel.


ii.You can also choose the menu item "View Audit Log" from within the Administrator Panel.


c.Viewing the Audit Log:

i.The log is organized into different sections. For changes that occur within a specific office, such as creating or editing an audit, logs can be found under the section with that office’s name. If the section does not appear, be sure the office name is selected in the Office list on the left panel of the Audit Log.


ii.Higher-level changes are shown under sections that are less specific. For example, creating an office or changing an office name will show up under “Offices.” Changes that happen to data that is not specific to any particular office will show up under headings such as Offices, Admin, User, and Login.

iii.The Audit Log allows the user to filter by date range of when the change occurred and filter by office(s), actions, and more. This functionality should look and feel similar to that of Visit Summaries.

iv.The audit log implements security measures to detect changes in the log data. Logs that have been deleted from the server will be highlighted in yellow. Logs that have been modified appear with red text. If either of these indicators appear, it is advised that the Administrator takes additional measures to find the source of a possible breach. Intelicode does not assume responsibility for the security of the database.


d.What does Intelicode Log?:

i.The following is a quick list of actions that Intelicode logs. The Audit Log is not limited to the listed items and may show logs for more than just what is listed in different circumstances.

ii.Logs are added when a user performs the following actions:

Data Creation


Management Data



Data Deletion


Management Data



Data Changes



Management Data


Administrative Settings

Data Importing

Management Data



Data Exporting

Management Data



Data Merging

Management Data




Data Viewing



Data Transferring Between Offices


Management Data

iii.For ease of determining which audit the information is about, a new column is now visible in Visit Summaries. Visit ID is consistent within a single office and can be used to identify a visit. It is important to recognize that sending a visit to another office will result in a unique visit ID in that other office which can be used to determine which visit is which.

Note: Changing your date format in the Date & time section of the Windows Control Panel will break the checksum on the Audit Log as the dates will no longer match. This will make it appear as though the database has been tampered with. If the Audit Log is critical for your usage of Intelicode then it is recommended not to change the system date format.
