I am currently working on a tool that will help improve work-flow for inputing vaccines. This is an addition to an existing improvement (worked in by a previous developer, improved since the initial code submission)that I have not yet contributed to the community.

The immunization schedules:
I’d like to follow best practices and include the ability to use the drug table if used. At this time, I haven’t worked on someones system who used the drug table. Suggestions?
My plan is to submit this for OpenEMR501 because automating data entry is a major improvement to workflow.
