Hi guys,

Hi Abdalla,

This will involve coding changes in the vital signs form scripts at interface/forms/vitals/

Out of curiosity, what fields are you adding?

Hi Brandy,
Thanks for you quick reply. I have a requirement from a Clinic I support. They want to add the below two fields:

  1.  Random blood sugars
    
  2.  Glycosylated Hb/Hb1AC
    

Regards,
Abdalla

Hi Abdalla,

This has been mentioned before. If not necessary to have this on the vitals, other options include using the Procedures/Labs module or the Track Anything Form/Module.

If really need to have it on the vitals form, then will need to edit pertinent places in interface/forms/vitals/ scripts and add the 2 new columns to the form_vitals mysql table.

Hi Brandy,
I think for them it will be necessary to have it on the Vitals form because it is a specialized diabetics/dialysis clinic.

Can you share what you needed to modify?
Thanks in advance,
