- Better patient view, I.e. with tabs to switch between patient info, vitals, visits.
- Better app support & optimisations for the iPad
- Implement Two-Way Synchronisation for the Client – currently we let user's to select patients for offline usage. But after the offline usage the updated info doesnt get synced with the server.
- Integrate the code base with Travis CI.
- Implement ODKClinic Android App features in the iOS app.
- Ability to Download Forms from the OpenMRS server.
- Let the users to fill those forms in a Mobile friendly interface.
