Continue supporting the existing implementations of decision support systems at AMPATH HIV sites.
Complete the roll-out of the decision support functionality to the remaining AMPATH HIV clinics.
Offer decision support services to other patient categories, including HIV-negative children, TB patients, and patients with diabetes and hypertension.
We need to find out what kind of forms they are using to capture the data - Ali currently working on them. In the meantime, we will use adult initial and adult return
[ ] In the future, we might have to restrict generation by particular responses within the trigger encounter forms - but this is very low priority.
Primary care summary (maybe)
How to we harmonize our templates (BIG JOB)
We think XML is not a good approach
We need a page to design the templates itself
Potentially moving away from the XML templating mechanism
This is our biggest challenge right now. Most of the summaries elements are either:
Individual value (concepts, patient attributes)
Flowsheet (not necessarily chronological)
[ ] Win needs to learn drag and drop technologies
ACCOMODATE NEW LOGIC MODULE CHANGES - Win
Make available real-time display of patient data, through a flowsheet module, for sites that have access to a computer and the central server - Burke/Martin
Expand our ability to offer summaries with reminders on mobile devices (smart-phones and tablets). This is becoming more relevant as we use community health workers - Yaw / Win / Martin
Improve compliance to decision support-generated care recommendations by making it easier for providers to implement these recommendations - Yaw / Win / Martin (IMPORTANT)
Creating a module where information entered is triaged by a data person - e.g. changes to drugs and changes to problem list
Support oversight functions and task-shifting at clinic and provider levels by making available aggregated sets of care suggestions to relevant providers and supervisors. As an example, we intend to provide community health workers with a list of patients who have not appeared to clinic for follow-up, give clinic supervisors a sense of how their clinic are performing in terms of quality of care, and offer them the opportunity to correct any identified areas of care deficiency
Stopping reminders after a certain number of times.
Need to capture when the reminder is triggered
Need to specify for how many encounter a reminder life will be
Figure out how best to use and develop the logging module
