Hi every one!
I am K.Suthagar who is studying at Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, University of Moratuwa. An aspiring young entrepreneur with good leadership skills and quick learning abilities. Simultaneously I am doing some non-academic projects at my startup Inncaps. I am also involved in Open Source Developments.
Here, I am contacting you about the Google Summer of Code Projects 2017, When I come across the Google Summer of Code 2017 Project Ideas, I found some great projects at OpenMRS Page. The technologies and ideas is most familiar with me for the further developments. I contributed most of the projects using that mentioned technologies. I would like to know some more details about this following Project idea to think some more about that.
I would like to work for Operation Theater Module Workflow Enhancements Project. I would like to clarify about this before the proposal preparation.
The main goal is to complete the workflow data capturing part along with scheduling to complete the OT module. So we need to create a platform for the data capturing and should verify before the completion.
Initially I would discuss about the pre-theater activities . a. Here we don’t need to take all the data from initial steps, because most of the patient data was entered to the OpenMRS platform during the admission. In my view, we just to want to collect some data like Past Surgery Histories, allergies, Medicine controls, Current Drug level in the body, and Body condition before the Surgery.
b. We need to get the Digital certificate about the surgery confirmation. To get the the surgery confirmation from patient or relations, we should implement a platform to take the identity data. And system should keep the capability to generate a hard copy with Patient details and Surgery plan to get the manual signature before the Surgery. It may help Hospitals for the legal issues from the surgeries failures and problems.
c. We want to develop platform to define the Surgery plan for the patient before the surgery. For this, we can’t ask the medical officer to enter whole data about the surgery for every patients. We can pre define all the Surgery details with some support data and then ask the medical officer to select some surgery category(surgery package) according to the patient situation. Then we can ask some parameters or relevant short details to full fill the Surgery plan. Here we want to develop a platform for the pre-define surgery details and making selection and modification before the surgery.
d. Here we can define some validations for the surgery. then we can notify the medical officer about some critical situations before the surgery. E.g :
- For some allergies, patient can’t involve the particular surgery.
- For some entered body conditions, patient can’t face the particular surgery immediately.
- For the medicine control, Patient may not take the particular medicine after the surgery, So System should indicate like this problems before the surgery to the medical officer.
I would like to discuss about the in-theater activities and post-theater activities also. I need to confirm this areas and ideas to prepare the proposal for this Project. I kindly request you to give me some guidance to develop this project in larger scale. @akshika47 this is kindly for your concern . Thank you
