Difference: GmManualTestResultImport (r7 vs. r6)

Getting test results into the GNUmed system

Entering results manually

This is, as usual, done by means of an There are two parts to entering a result manually: Edit Area.

  • go to menu creating the measurement or test 'type', if it does not already exist, and EMR / Observations / Add Measurements
  • fill in inputting a value for the dialog measurement or test type of interest
  • fields labelled in red are required
  • [Next] lets you enter the next value of the same type with minimun hassle
  • phrasewheels provide online feedback from the backend

The same Edit Area is used If you intend to manually enter when editing existing results which were received from a laboratory then you may rather first set these up under the menu GNUmed > Master data > Manage lists > Test types because this will provide you the flexibility to define which laboratories are providing you with their results, together with their contact information.

You can ignore the above, and create test types which did not already exist right inside a patient measurement edit area. You only need to know that test types that are created in this situation are assumed to be generated within the praxis (such as weights and blood pressures). These will therefore be automatically assigned under the laboratory "inhouse lab". This can later be revised under the Master data menu.

To input new measurements inside the current patient's edit area,

  • go to menu EMR / Observations / Add Measurements or click on the Measurements plugin where you will find the Add button
  • select, or enter for creation, the test or measurement type of interest
  • fill in the rest of the dialog, noting that fields labelled in red are required
  • [Next] lets you enter the next value of the same type with minimum hassle
  • phrasewheels provide online feedback from the backend

The same Edit Area is used when editing existing results.

Automated import

There will be various scripts to import external data. We are hoping to use Mirth Project for HL7 import with some of the groundwork here. There's a partially finished LDT importer available in the source tree.
