In the EndTB configuration 1.5 there are a number of observation templates for lab data (eg “Lab Result Biochemistry Template”, “Lab Results Hematology Template”). When using the “enter data” screen in the clinical app and entering data into these templates, they display on the left hand side with the “specimen collection date” in brackets. Similarly, in a display control of type “forms” the observation template is shown with the date of specimen collection.
If we add a completely new observation template in OpenMRS and include specimen collection date in that obs template, it instead shows the date of data/entry or the date of visit rather than the specimen collection date in the display control and in the enter data screen.
I was just wondering if we could get some advice on how and where this behaviour is controlled in the EndTB configuration. The outcome we would like is to be able to add new observation templates to the configuration that include a date field and then to use the date entered there as the date of data entry/visit in the same way that as currently happens for the existing lab result observation templates.
