The Human Genetics Clinic of the faculty of Medicine, University of Colombo plays a valuable role in caring for patients.

Currently, contributors have finalized requirements for collection collecting data from patients, and developed appopriate appropriate forms to do so. However, the forms would benefit from being upgraded to be more user friendly, and become comparable to the functionality seen on the 'collect vitals' form.


As you will see, this form contains one 'table' and allows users to enter in fields (such as height, weight, temperature etc. ) one at a timeIn time In comparison, a HGU data collection form contains multiple 'tables', with their own specific fields (see example below) -

As you can see, this form has multiple tables (history, Examination & investigation findings, for office use, etc.) We need to modify this form to be similar to the vitals forms shown above.



The HGU unit has a number of forms that are similar to that shown below. Re-write these forms to mimic vital forms sign design using html, jsp and jquery.
