Patient Document Management

About the Feature

Your hospital may have to receive and capture patient's information in form of documents. This could include patient's paper record scans, X-Ray images and other documents received from external entities. Bahmni allows you to upload these documents by tagging them and associating it to specific visits of a patient.

When we use Bahmni in Tablets like iPad, these documents can be captured directly (by using the camera). All these documents get attached to patient's record viewable from other parts in Bahmni. On these documents the clinicians can also write their comments/notes.

From 0.89 onwards we support multi-select of documents before upload. This is expected to reduce the effort of users when there a large of documents for a patient, to be uploaded at once .

Where is it Used?

When patient visits hospital with scan/X-Ray images or any other documents then clinician can add these during consultation.


The stored documents will be useful when clinician looks for information on previous visit history.

Visit Dashboard

To see uploaded documents against a patient, one can go to Clinical → Dashboard → Visit Control → Visit Dashboard → Patient Files. Or you can easily see it on the Sidebar in the Clinical app (when you click on the top right burger icon)
