We are a small group practice with three family doctors and plan to start using openemr. Have installed a working copy however I would like to minimise the learning curve so would like to ask some questions to the community. Basically I would like to know whether my queries can be solved with my installed version or whether we require extra customisation.
To be very clear I am looking mostly at clinical rather than administrative workflow.
All facilities I am looking for are available natively in the EMR I currently use (Soapware) so if anything I need something more efficient - any help from the community would really be appreciated.
I have managed to create a patient contact and use SOAP or Review of systems. Now, How can I issue prescription for this episode…say I need to prescribe an antibiotic for 7 days, what should I do? How can I print a prescription for this (on A5 paper)
I download my lab results in the form of a csv table then I paste into my present EMR and paste results in a standard template which I then send a copy to patient usually by post - is there an equivalent method in OpenEMR?
I have several standard templates for certificates where the text is standard and demographic data is taken from the patient data…is there an equivalent method?
