It’s with great pleasure that we announce the release of Bahmni 0.93. It sure has taken some time since version 0.92, however in the end, we are happy that Bahmni 0.93 comes out with tons of features, improvements and fixes. It would not have happened without you all, and you ought to be really proud of this achievement. This release of Bahmni brings broadly the following features (and not limited to):
Localization - While Bahmni was designed for internationalization, there remain certain gaps and challenges towards completely localizing a specific Bahmni implementation. In this release, gaps primarily in Registration and Clinical modules have been fixed. For concepts, if you have the metadata properly set up for other languages, it would reflect so once you have logged on to a specific locale.
Appointment Module Features - new features include ability to schedule for multiple providers for an appointment, conflict management for patients and services, ability to schedule recurring appointments etc
Access Control - Reports and forms can now be made accessible to users with specified privileges.
OT Scheduling - Weekly view is now provided for OT schedules.
Configure additional orderables - you may mark a concept as “sellable” and configure such concepts in the orders tab, so that on order they appear on Odoo quotations. For example - procedures, counselling, physiotherapy etc
Bahmni Connect Sync improvement - Bahmni connect now has ability to sync catchment wise data, driven by a UI. Initial data synchronization is also optimized.
Lab Improvements - result entry for referred out tests can be marked as done, test status configuration, test method management, sample printout with barcode
Security fixes - security enhancements towards XSS, CSRF, Domain whitelisting, Injections Attacks etc
Teleconsultation - (Preview feature only) - It’s also possible to schedule a tele consultation appointment, built on top of Jitsi, allowing Doctor-patient interactions over video. Note, while the teleconsultation feature is fully functional, there are some missing features you should be aware of before using on production.
Oviyam Viewer Upgrade - Oviyam Dicom Viewer has been upgraded to v.2.8.1.
Please note, some of the links to documentation may not be there yet. In the days to come, we hope to fix all of them and update the WIKI. Please point out any gaps as you see.
