Yep this is very doable and maybe best approach. My latter example is nearly there with just needs the point and click setup to map positions on the image. This is a similar approach @visolveemr is heading in their design pattern i’m guessing ie have input option selection bar where you drag option into position on the image then map position to forms table. Or something like that but without image and also creating the form labels etc.
My first example is, well, maybe showing off a little. Originally I was reading and writing to the pdf all the fields of the pdf but could not modify existing pdf to add signature hooks so I converted pdf to a flat, absolute positioning html and wrote js handler to handle form data(It does print as seen). It is rather a complicated process and not suitable here where just reading/writing to pdf may be.
Btw Ray, this is part of my Occupational module where I believe you have seen my hearing/analysis and PFT forms and plan, if ever I get the energy and time, to donate to openemr.
I’ve integrated the portals signing module into LBF and also added two canned form fields that can be dropped on any form to get patient/user signature on mentioned forms. Signing can be from a remote tablet or from the device populating the form(it’s auto). The LBF stuff is sponsored but the signing stuff is all mine and plan to donate as well.
Hope I didn’t get too off topic here but I just wanted to demo the image stuff and possible approach Ray spoke of.
I’m not sure here if visolve is going to create this and then donate or are looking for developer help but, if the latter, i’ll sign up…
