  • Discussion about MDR-TB Module of OpenMRS

Discussion items

 MDR-TB Module of OpenMRS 
    • The programs in the MDR-TB module seem TB specific. On a high level the parameters that are being recorded mainly in the enrollment part and the way program related data is stored is similar to generic OpenMRS programs. 
    • The Workflows are also TB specific
    • The lab results section seems much more generic and can be used for entering other bacteriology results where data about smear and cultures are to be recorded.
    • The sample_type set seems pretty complete for any smear or culture test. (but specifically for TB). 
    • Appearance should change according to the sample type and that does not seem to be happening at the moment. Need to check that. 
    • Coming to the results section, this seems complete and generic for culture tests and smears. 
    • A field that can be added is MIC or minimum Inhibitory concentration. 
    • Another thing that might be good to have is the ability to add details about more than one organism for the same culture. 
    • A plan to do this is to create multiple entries for the same culture sample and record different organisms to each but that's not recommended. 
    • Keep the first 8 boxes constant on this screen constant and just give the ability to add one more result (Specimen Result screen) 
    • The hierarchy of general samples is  Specimen>Smear/Culture>Organism>Drug sensitive
