The module will be responsible for checking patient insurance enrollment on registration (in external Insurance Management Information System) status and submitting claims (managing patient billing). The module additionally needs to extend the user interface using the extension points (fragments) in other modules such as:
The module will also provide its own interface that will give a billing/claim overview.
This module will depend on the existing OpenMRS FHIR module - it will leverage it to act as an FHIR client that will communicate with external Insurance Management Information System. Any extension that will be required to the FHIR module will be contributed to the FHIR module codebase. The new module will allow configuring connection details through an admin interface.
FHIR STU3 will be the main standard of communication between OpenMRS and external Insurance Management Information System. The financial module of FHIR will be used to represent the claim/enrollment data being exchanged between systems.
Since FHIR will be used as the standard of data exchange it will be possible for OpenMRS to integrate with systems that implement the standard.
There are several goals which can be identified (as short term goals) at the beginning of project:
