Laboratory Configurations (OpenELIS Training)


Bahmni integrates OpenMRS with OpenELIS which is a laboratory management system. The doctor can order lab tests from the Orders tab in the Consultation screen and the tests will sync to OpenELIS where the lab technician can see the backlog of patients with their respective lab order requests. Bahmni automatically syncs the tests that are set up from the OpenMRS admin page to OpenELIS thus facilitating easy laboratory management

In this training, we will learn how to set up the metadata and other admin options in the lab module.
