We are considering OpenEMR to replace our current old Electronic Medical System. So far, I have been playing around with the OpenEMR demo at OpenEMR Demo.
Being a newbie at OpenEMR, I have some questions that I wish to get some guidance from the community that will hopefully speed up our learnings.
I saw various tabs under the Patient Dashboard > Demographics. I presume I can remove some of these tabs and add new tabs that match our requirements?
There are a lot of data fields under Patient Dashboard > Demographics. Are these fields customizable?
I saw many forms at the right column of Patient Dashboard, i.e. allergies, medical problems, medications, etc. How do I customize these forms, i.e. add / remove fields in these forms?
In our hospital, we have additional forms that our doctors need to complete for all patients, such as
- Health Screening and Assessment: A set of health screening / diagnosis questionnaire that our doctors need to complete on patients first visit.
- Continuation Form: A set of questionnaire that our doctors need to complete when following up / clerking an existing patient.
- Phone Review: A short note that records the patient condition when our doctors to call to review a patient medical condition.
What would be the best place to implement these forms?
- If there are certain modules that we don’t need, i.e. appointments, calendar, dispensary, payment processing, How do we disable and hide them from the user interface?
I know these are a lot of questions. If it is too time consuming to answer, appreciate if you could point me to the right link with the relevant resources so that I can read further.
Thank you in advance.
