New encounter questionnaire instructions: Questionnaire/Assessment feature implementation instructions - #5 by sjpadgett
Though many will be creative in different ways to develop a questionnaire, I’ll show a couple ways to get started using NIH tools.
Note the following websites:
- LHC-Forms Questionnaire App Is an available application populated with many test patients and questionnaires.
- NLM Form Builder Can be used to import existing questionnaires to modify from a couple FHIR server sources or simply use form as is.
Both sources allow either a file download as a json FHIR Questionnaire where the file can then be used to import into OpenEMR from the Portal Dashboard->Manage Templates or a clipboard copy/paste into your own file.
So I’ll start with picking a PHQ-9 questionnaire with scoring using NLM Form Builder and selecting from a LOINC search.
Select on left Export then Export to file and save the R4 version using a file name the patient will understand as that will be the name used after file import. The file should contain only the resource json and be give a .json extension.
Using the dashboard Template Manager you may import as a questionnaire template for the portal or import just the questionnaire to be stored in the questionnaire repository for use by the FHIR API/SMART app or future self created templates using the Questionnaire directives available in the template editor drag/drop menu.
When importing as a normal template import, OpenEMR will auto create the necessary document template and assigned the json resource which is stored in questionnaire repository and the template to the Document Template repository which can then be assigned to a Profile and patients/groups.
After Template import
Then drag and drop to a profile.
Next ensure profile is enabled for the portal here:
Once this is done go to portal for an assigned patient and select questionnaire from My Documents->Select Documents pull down.
That’s all there is to it. I hope this hasn’t been to brief however, please ask any questions if any clarifications are needed and I’ll respond ASAP.
