'Today's date'

Hi, I'm sorry to bother you, but is there a way to put in the date the actual INR is taken? RAT seems to default to the date you are entering it. We frequently have INR results sent to us the next day, or the Monday if the INR was taken on a Friday, which means we have to enter the information, print recommendations and then go back in and modify the result we've just entered to show the correct date and not 'today's date'. Very many thanks.

Dear Jacqui
RAT is purposely designed that way, so that the user acts on an INR on the day it is received, not on the day it is taken. The user cannot give a warfarin regimen for a previous day as this is not possible. Hope this makes sense.
