      Description

      Hello Everyone,

      I have spent so much time studying Bika Health and i believe years from now it should be the best FOSS EMR,EHR and LIMS to ever exist. My Proposed Features are here below:
      1. Can it be possible to add a medical folder for each patient where the hospital will have to scan and upload the hard copy paper record of the patient so that it can be viewed by the doctor in checking a patient past treatment history. also the folder can carry a patients DPA (Durable Power of Attorney card).

      Separate issues

      2. Would it be possible to add a billing system where all prescribed drugs would be billed and all other services rendered to the patient will be billed and receipt printed?

      3. Can a ward allocation be possible to be added in the system?

          1. add a medical folder for each patient where the hospital scan 
          and upload hard copy paper records of the patient to be viewed 
          by the doctor as patient past treatment history. Also the folder 
          can carry a patient's DPA (Durable Power of Attorney card).
          

          It is functionality that doctors should rather keep in an EMR, together with all the non-core LIMS functionality such as Patient Demographics etc.Ideally they'll get their lab results delivered in context there too, and only have to learn the EMR UI, their prime health care application.

          Regardless, it is standard Plone CMS and should be easy in Bika. I have been wrong before...

          2. add a billing system where all prescribed drugs be billed 
          and all other services rendered be billed and receipt printed?
          

          Typically EMR too, there are plenty FOSS ones, Dispensary can become really complex.

          Payments and Receipts, would love to add that too for smaller labs, but should be handled in dedicated Accounts or ERP applications to which Bika interfaces/exports invoices for lab services already.

          3. Can a ward allocation be possible to be added in the system?
          

          Most labs I saw treat Wards as individual clients. Not complex to add in the Bika fundamentals, but 2 tier client structure will touch forms and lay-outs system wide.

          Thanks Lemoene,
          My question is with regards to Bika Health because i see Bika Health evolving into the best LIMS and EMR combined together. Since currently Bika Health has ICD 10 or 9 code , i believe you would have a reply to me from this view.

          Would be a massive task to do all of EMR, LIMS and ERP in one system. We struggle to keep up with LIMS developments on its own!-)

          We really fancy Bika's robust JSON API and that'll see integration happen a lot sooner, with bika as a specialised LIMS and other available packages plug the other requirements, e.g. in biobanking, which takes the model furthest:

          That does not discard combining as much managable for smaller scenarios:

          oh an Bika only has ICD 9 at the moment ..

          Please note Jaipal that we are doing away with the current Attachment widget. It is being replaced by a Plone friendly structure currently under evaluation at https://jira.bikalabs.com/browse/HEALTH-465 by Hocine Bendou
