Hi everyone, we currently have a requirement to support Generic Decision support functionality within our Bahmni implementation in Lesotho. This includes alerts aligned with clinical treatment guidelines for different health programs like PMTCT, HEI, PNC, ANC, ART etc.
In order for the Bahmni solution to support the frequent changes in policy based on ever changing clinical guidelines for different health program areas there is a need to have a flexible and highly configurable module to support the business rules that can inform or guide clinicians during patient encounters based on the latest clinical guidelines. This can happen in the form of pop up alerts to aid clinicians at point of care or any other informative information that can be of use to the clinicians at point of care.
Some of our use case scenarios are:
- Alert to remind clinician to draw blood for various tests for ART client as well as HEI based on guidance from the ART treatment guidelines
- Alert to remind clinician to screen for CX_CA (Cervical Cancer) for eligible women based on guidance from the ART treatment guidelines
- Populate list of clients eligible for certain test/screening (blood test, TB or CX_CA screening) but didn’t receive services accordingly
- Alert to remind clinician to capture TB or ART intake information for a particular client at point of care i.e. missing information etc.
