A content inventory categorizes all the content on a website.
As we rebuild a new OpenMRS frontend, it will be helpful for to see the existing functionality and variation across clinical systems.
After completing a Content Inventory we can perform a cross-system Content Audit, to identify the most frequently used functionality, which will help in prioritizing design development.
The resources at the bottom of this article propose how this is done for a typical website. However, as OpenMRS is a more of a web application (a tool used to do work), not a website (e.g. not advertising a product / service) we will adopt the traditional content inventory to meet our needs.
A blank template (TEMPLATE PENDING) is available for you to start a content inventory for your own OpenMRS System.
