The objective of this Sprint is to produce a working Patient Summary module built on top of the Reporting module, which will enable an end-user to do the following from the UI:

  • Define the data elements (schema) behind a Patient Summary
  • Define a basic layout using either text (eg. html) or Excel, which will render the appropriate data elements where specified
  • Add scripting capabilities to text-based summaries (eg. iterating, formatting, conditionals, etc)
  • Configure one or more patient summaries to be visible directly on the patient dashboard in a new tab
  • Support an initial (and expandable) library of utilities to add complex elements to text-based summaries, aiming to support at minimum:
    • Problem list based on "PROBLEM ADDED" and "PROBLEM REMOVED" concepts
    • Table of Obs
    • Table of Encounters
    • Graph of a value over time (which can take in a List<Obs>, but isn't limited to this)
  • Load a patient summary in a printer-friendly format
  • A user-interface for designing a patient summary that aims for ease of use

Time-permitting, or given the priorities of particular contributers (ahem, Win), additional features may include:

  • Taking advantage of existing report scheduling features to schedule a patient summary to be fun in the future for a Cohort of patients
  • Adding the ability to produce a separate rendered output document for each patient in the base Cohort
  • Taking advantage of existing report processing features to output one or more patient summaries to the file system
