To provide the initial steps towards linking OpenMRS Orders to OpenHMIS Bills and/or Stock Operations, Items can now be linked to OpenMRS concepts/drugs. While administrators can manually go through each item and search for the associated concept, the Generate Item Mappings page will attempt to find the more obvious mappings based on the Item and Concept name. Clicking on the Generate Item Mappings link will start mapping process:
This may take a few mintues depending on the number of items without concepts and the number of concepts in the system. Once loaded, a list will display the mappings that were found:
If the mapped concept is correct, users can check the checkbox for that item. If not, user can either try to find a better concept by typing in the concept textbox, selecting the preferred concept, and checking the checkbox, or simply leave the checkbox unchecked. Once users have reviewed the mappings and checked the ones they want to keep, they can click on the Save Items or Save Items and Get Next button
Clicking the Save Items button will save the checked mappings and take the user to the previous page (this is so that the mappings are not generated again). Clicking the Save Items and Get Next button will save the checked mappings and reload the list.
