Abstract

The HTML Form Entry module allows anyone with basic HTML skills and a knowledge of the OpenMRS system to create forms to enter and edit patient data within the system. It allow users to write forms using HTML combined with a set of special tags that reference different aspects of the OpenMRS data model.

The tags provided by the module has been steady expanding with each new release, but there is consistently a backlog of new tags and improvements to existing tags that the community has requested. This project will take on some of these requests.
