The aim of this project is to provide a way for healthcare providers to subscribe to notifications in Bahmni.

Providers would likely want to be notified of certain events in the system for SMS-based notification (or email/in-system notification, etc).

For instance:

  1. A patient is re-visiting the facility. This might be of interest to a doctor doing a PhD research, and would like to know when a particular patient returns to the hospital.

  2. A patient xRAY or Lab Test result is submitted to the system --- for high risk patients a provider might be interested in being notified. Or being notified only if a Lab Result is ABNORMAL. (Although definition of ABNORMAL isn't really always the same for all patients/ages/genders/conditions).

From an implementation perspective, the idea could be that Bahmni logs "events" as they occur in the system, and a notification sub-system allows you to subscribe to some "patients" or "patient events", and emit these notifications. The Audit Log feature could also use a similar logging subsystem.
