Right now this is not feasible in openElis. Kindly go through a similar thread for understanding the discussions that happened around this sometime back.

Thank you Buvaneswari for the details. When we did some research on the OpenElis we found that latest version of the OpenElis is supporting the auto capture of lab results for the below Lab Analyzers

Supported lab devices in latest OpenELIS are , CobasC111 CobasIntegra400 CobasTaqMan48DBS FacsCalibur FacsCantoII FacsPresto SysmeXT SysmexXT4000i Sysmex2000i

Could you please let us know if any work or discussion happening in the community to upgrade BAHMNI with the latest version of the OpenELIS.

Thank you.

@tejakancherla - yes there are analysis happening but As of now, there is no immediate plans of upgrade.

The current version of Bahmni OpenELIS does not provide out-of-the-box integration to any analyzer. Bahmni is indeed exploring options to upgrade the LIMS but it will take quite some time since we are still at the initial stages of the analysis. Hence providing a timeline is difficult. @philanjoroge is leading the analysis for evaluating OpenELIS 2.0 as an option.

However, if we can get some hands to own this piece of work and contribute to the product, it will be a win-win situation. cc @angshuonline @pradiptakundu

It’s been almost a year since the last post on this thread. I wanted to check if anyone has integrated a Lab Analyser with Bahmni, and can share sample steps / code on how they achieved it. Thanks!

We’ve continued expanding OpenELIS community codebase at UW, including the inclusion of additional lab analyzers like GeneXpert for COVID testing. Would love to hear how the analysis of upgrading Bahmni to OE 2.0 is going with @philanjoroge where you all could leverage the integrated analyzers, locally managed test catalogs, and FHIR APIs for OpenMRS, OpenLMIS, and other global goods integration. Any word on the analysis for upgrading?

@janflowers we hope to do a simple POC soon.

@gsluthra there are few who have done the integration, using HL7 interface engines like Mirth, with OpenELIS. Can’t help if they don’t want to contribute.

@angshuonline POC?

Proof of concept

Basically to test out the integration with Bahmni

  • sync meta data to ELIS
  • sync order to ELIS
  • sync results back to MRS

Thx. We’re happy to help where you’d like with the OpenELIS side. We’ve been rolling out national OE-OMRS FHIR exchanges this past two years, so might be helpful to get on a workshop call to talk about where you all are and share anything we’ve done since we last talked?
