  • Questions to ponder
    • How to install a SMART app?
    • Is it worth implementing the REST api instead of the direct javascript connect POST methods?
    • How to require that concepts be mapped to the vocabularies SMART uses (SNOMED for problems, RxNorm for medications)


The folowing UI allow administer to install new apps or remove apps that are already installed.The appropriate place to display this UI is Administration->manage smartapps.
While administrator wants to add new SMART Apps he have to click on add button in above UI.This will give a popup window that allow administrator to up load a SMART App manifest or give a link to a manifest file.

Database Table Design
The module has to manage installed application and user.The information regarding apps and user have to be modeled to save in to the database.OpenMRS already has user object(can be found here),so the details about this object is avoided.
