Background: A test need to be associated with a default test method. Client could configure the test method for every test(optional) based on the lab machinery they have. The test method of the test could be printed on the lab report, this is an information that doctors usually seek while reviewing the reports.
Some bigger labs may have multiple machines for doing the same test hence different methods may be available for a test. In this case, the used test method has to be selected at the time of result entry. At present we are not considering this requirement.
ELIS datamodel already supports test methods. We are providing a settings page UI for adding, editing and deactivating test methods. Also we are adding an additional field on the test details page to set the method for test.

Now user can add new, edit or deactivate a method on the administration UI. Also a a new non mandatory drop down field is given on test details screen for selecting a method for the test.
