First i would like to say I’m new to the community, started recently working on bahmni and times over it has been a good resource to find solutions and responses to issues and questions I have been finding daily.
As part of the project I’m working on currently, we were tasked in adding a feature to allow the clinicians to choose medication they are prescribing to a patient based on the Category and Line of treatment.
This feature is created as a way to narrow down drug options only to those which are applicable.
Creating drug order sets was seen in the beginning as a viable way however it would require the configuration to be done manually on all health facilities across the country, and by limitation depending on the treatment, drugs and quantities vary between patients.
So as a solution we created concept sets for drug categories (ARV and TB) and their respective lines:
- ARV - 1st line
- ARV - 2nd line
- ARV - 3rd line
- TB - Sensitive
- TB - Resistant
So the perscription tab now looks like this:
And after each option is selected the drug options avaliable for selection are narrowed down.
Please let me know if this would be of service for the community so we can share more.
