Covid-19 Screening and Counseling V1 updated in NepalEHR

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fdb844e19b8>

Dear Community Member,

NepalEHR team recently updated the screening notes for Community Health Care and Facilities based implementation in Nepal as V1, which has helped hospitals to provide, manage and coordinate the further care. We have updated the short notes in NepalEHR wiki . Thanks you to Possiblehealth and NepalEHR team for the support.

Feel free to suggest for the improvements we can work together.

@sanjayap This is fantastic! Have you come across our COVID-19 Response thread? There are a few people on there who are working on COVID-19 concepts and a set of tools as well. It would be great to have your feedback on what they are working on and see how this all fits together.


Hi Jennifer, Thank you for your suggestion. I am getting touch with the thread for the possible collaboration.

Well done @sanjayap this is great progress on the NepalEHR. Aside from the screening notes and tips for the community health workers, do you wish to have a page for these tips available for healthcare providers interacting with the EHR? I think it will be a great resource page.

See image snapshot from my instance.

Great job, Sanjay! Definitely want to help with the CIEL coding of this. I just realized that we didn’t have a concept for self-quarantine or history of self-quarantine or physical distancing, etc.


Thank you @ggomez. We have everyday CME in our facilities along with posters in every lobby of the hospital, on top of this this would be a great idea to add on the interaction page within EHR. Thank you for your suggestion,will update you how we are going to incorporate. Here is the snapshot that we have kept in for Community Health Counseling.


@akanter we look forward to add on the CIEL for NepalEHR, this is something we have been waiting since long as our wish list. As adoption of NepalEHR is growing, we would like to standardize dictionary across all implementation. We are following as a start.

We recently added dashboard for public view, so that Municipality and Government organisation can continuously get update with latest stat. The data is real time.

How’d it go, Sanjay? Do you need anything from me?

Hi Andrew, we just completed the diagnosis part @diwash @ and I are working closely, one stoppage is that we have no idea if any of the Bahmni implementations has used OCL I am not sure bahmni coalition has recent plans on this. Probably we can work together on this.

Bahmni has been represented on the OCL for OMRS calls and I believe this issue is becoming less of a problem. Do you have the content part of this that you can share with me? Are you using the COVID content CIEL already has been sharing?

Hi Sanjay Do you have any updates on your work with COVID-19? I am writing a short piece on OpenMRS for an article on use of Open source systems for COVID-19 response would like to include your work.
