Sep-2023: Bahmni team is undertaking brand new development of IPD Features. This is an exciting phase, and you can read more about this work here: In-Patient Features (IPD) in Bahmni
This is an Old Feature
With 0.91 release, a newBed Management feature is available. While the older feature (detailed below) is also available, we strongly advice any existing implementation to transition to the new feature soon. Going forward, this module will be deprecated. The deprecation is intended for Release 0.93
