Data Entry Statistics
Overview:  Current Data Entry Statistics (https://github.com/openmrs/openmrs-module-dataentrystatistics) was originally created to provide quick view of data entery clerks' productivity (number of encounter forms entered and average obs per encounter form entered).  The UI for specifying the report critiera was updated in 2012 to include providers for Encounter User option and Orderers for Order User option.  However, implementations need to have more options to specify the report criteria as well as output reports.
    Include crtieria for Districts (for health facliities) so that it can filter out limited list of locations (for health facilities) under the selected districts
    Allow to choose one or more districts and locations 
    Allow different reporting time frame to includes a) specific date ranage and b) calendar months
    Generate three output reports
    Should the new data entry statistics be built as extension of the exisitng data entry statistics (https://github.com/openmrs/openmrs-module-dataentrystatistics)?
  • Pros:  Quick and straightforward
  • Cons: It might run into issues of more extensions might not be as simple/easy.
  • Should the new data entry statistics be created through reporting framework?
  • Pros: It's more powerful and easy to expand for future versions.  Also, it will be maintained by the community.
  • Cons:  It will take longer time to research/learn and also might need to additional development work.
     If extending from existing data entry statistics, we should keep in mind for possible additions like to include other types of reports (e.g. Daily Statistics by Encounters).
