Here is a question/request for feedback…
The FHIR R4 standard for vital sign observations ( see https://www.hl7.org/fhir/observation.html ) suggests that for a vital you could/should have parameters that indicate if the reading is N (normal), H (high) or L (Low).
So, I have reviewed the data table for vitals, and it appears that it is not set up for this.
The question then is/are:
- Have I missed something and I can add N, H, L readings to the patient vital signs?
- If this is absent in OpenEMR, is there any plans to include it?
If the answers are negative, we would be interested in supporting the required changes; either through direct contribution, or support of another developer who may be working on this area at the moment.
Thank you in anticipation of meaningful feedback.
