Absolute Newbie here

I am an absolute newbie to OpenEMR. I am a QA resource looking to use anything in OpenEMR as a Modality Worklist. Right now I have another way to query a MWL and pull back some very basic info, such as name, DOB, etc… but I wanted to try and set up an EMR in my testing environment that allows me to do a few things like:

Query an MWL
Send (orders) and receive (reports) HL7 message

I am on XAMPP 7.4, OpenEMR 5.0.2 on Windows 10

Ultimately, I’d love to use this as a ‘test’ environment, as I have API hooks I’d like to call to fetch patient data, viewers, upload images, etc and attach them to patient charts or patients in general… including an onboarding patient registration that generates an order, etc

I am sure there is a hefty “setup” that I have to do for Providers, Patients, Facilities, Departments etc…and I will be going thru the online documentation to glean what I can.

Ideally, I’d love to get a sample DB that has the OpenEMR ecosystem already set up, but based on what I am reading, this is not something that is readily available.

Thanks in advance for any help or pointers you can provide
