/images/arrow_right.png IUtility::Expand method
Expands the given main code, according to the supplied number and as multiples of the base unit.
 
PATCH:
  • If the instruction "#noTimeLimit" is appended to the service code (e.g. "00.0010#noTimeLimit"), then a full expansion without obeying any time restrictions or limits is performed.
     
    A suchwise generated expansion of a service chain might of course provoke validation errors and then generates messages about the violation of the quantity limit! The newly built-in
    time restrictions of Tarmed 1.09 are thus made "visible" and the over time is not silently discarded.
     
  • If the instruction #INFO is appened to the service code (e.g. "00.0010#INFO") the IUtility::GetFirstExpandRecord method returns "non-expandable, dropped" fraction too large for a full expansion under the current rule regime.
     
    For example, after expanding IUtility::Expand("00.0010#INFO",23,) under a "paper limits", the method IUtility::GetFirstExpandRecord returns "00.0010#INFO3" as code meaning that 3 min out of 23 min are not applicable (aka dropped) within the current TarMed rule set regime.

/images/arrow_right.png Calling argument description
[in] BSTR bstrCode Tarmed main service code
 
Patch:
  • bstrCode can be appended with #noTimeLimit to fully expand the service chain without any time restriction.
     
  • bstrCode can be appended with #INFO to retrieve the droped minutes in the IUtility::GetFirstExpandRecord method
[in] double dNumber Number supplied as multiples of the base unit.
For example if a consultation lasted 23 Minutes, 23 would be entered.
 
The base unit information for the code can be retrieved from the ISearch::GetUnit property interface.
[in] DATE dDate Date of the service.
[in] SettlementType eSettlement Settlement type.
[out, retval] VARIANT_BOOL *pbStatus Return status of the method
 
/images/arrow_right.png C/C++ return value
S_OK This value is returned if the function call was successful or if the return value of a boolean method signalling a true value. In this case the VARIANT_BOOL is set to VARIANT_TRUE.
S_FALSE This is the return value of a boolean method signalling a false return value. In this case the VARIANT_BOOL is set to VARIANT_FALSE.
E_name This value is returned if the function call was unsuccessful and an error exception was generated. Note that if you are using SmartPointers an exception is thrown under these conditions.
