how to do that from ui and from apis

Hello @MahaMH
Adding the medical tests you want requires configuring OpenEMR’s Procedures module. Don’t know about APIs for this, but this wiki page tell how to add any arbitrary individual test(s), after setting up Procedures. And the page has links to the tutorials that describe that process.

https://www.open-emr.org/wiki/index.php/How_to_Add_Covid-19_or_any_other_single_test_to_OpenEMR_Procedures

‘Hospital Procedures’ requires some explanation, however. Can you give an example of their use and function in your clinical setting?

thanks for your response but how can I relate the medical tests with specific patient

Hi @MahaMH
Here’s another wiki page that re-states the config steps at the top of the page for a slightly different use case. The link takes you straight to the section on how to use a procedure and assign it to an encounter.

Note, though, that if you do not have procedures properly configured some features in the interface that are needed to use them, will not appear-- for example, the encounter menu ‘Procedure Orders’ item.

And of course, since the docs are for OpenEMR v4.x the interface controls will look different after OpenEMR v6, but should still be recognizable.

Good luck!
