Overview

This module provide's a mechanism for users to communicate with system supporters/admins with system-related (not patient-specific) messages. For example:

  • "The system is running much slower than usual today."
  • "We need a diagnosis term for Sarcoidosis."
  • "This system would be better if I could more easily find my patient's lab results."
    and eventually:
  • "I tried to select BOB SMITH and got this error" (with screenshot and a snapshot of recent log exceptions attached)

There is a ubiquitously available link in the upper right near the Help link. A "Feedback" link pops up a simple form.  When feedback is submitted, the user receives confirmation and the feedback is forwarded to the system administrator. The administrator can respond and act on feedback from the administration screen.

  1. Gaurav: Could you please rename this page into something more specific? Page names are unique in Confluence spaces, so this page's name appears pretty general when looking at search results. Thanks!

    1. Changed it to : "Documentation for Feedback Module" should I make it something like "Manual for General Feedback Module" ?
