This project proposes to add a Drug Order and Pharmacy module to OpenMRS, a computer software for electronic medical records. With extensive studies of existing software including Practice Fusion, Bahmni, Dominica and in-depth discussions with the medical and developer communities about the specific features needing improvement in existing software, we have developed the UI/UX - more on this in the following chapters. This module provides interfaces for Physicians to place order(s) for a single drug, a group of drugs or a set of drugs from an Administrator definable regimen or medication plan. It also provides options to view the order status, revise the formulations, discontinue the active orders or renew the in-active ones, either individually or as a group. The module will provide the Pharmacist the list of active order(s) placed for a Patient and options to record the action taken on the orders. For the drugs that are currently unavailable in the pharmacy, the Pharmacist will be able to highlight the orders individually and communicate the same with the ordering Physician through email if required.
