Bulk Sample import to Batch. Bika Vet. Patient server
Mailing list post. 23 Jan 2020
Shaun at Greenhill is sponsoring the resurrection of Bulk Sample imports to Batches, It Is a popular topic, please see whether his Bika Dairy version would work for you and how it could be taken further. It is a prototype, we are doing a few workarounds. It only does one Analysis Profile per Sample at the moment, to be expanded as requirements dictate.
We use Bika/Senaite LIMS to start with, and in a next phase when Shaun start taking diagnostic analyses and more patient information is required, use Health as a Patient and Doctor/Vet server. In Dairy, Vets are registered on the system as Verifiers, a regulatory requirement, linked to their Clients with access to their animal data only.
Health does not have regular Batch processing necessary in Vet labs - does it do Samples without patients - and only limited Patient attributes are needed. Where necessary for epidemiology purposes, the rest of Health stays available.
Such a central Patient and Caregiver server will be well suited in district roll-outs of Bika/Senaite Health elsewhere too
