Abstract: 

This project was designed to upgrade the existing OpenMRS Visit Notes Analysis module. This version of the module lets the user access the underlying visit notes data with more ease - For a particular patient, all visit notes available in the database are displayed as a chart over time, and the user can view a word cloud of problems/treatments/tests by varying the date range, entity type and number of terms. The user can then select a few terms for which a detailed timeline can be viewed (including related terms). Based on the heat map timeline, visit notes can be listed, filtered and read in further detail. Latest technologies such as the MVC framework AngularJS and the data visualization library D3.js have been used. REST web services and corresponding OpenMRS APIs were developed to support the user interface changes.
