Multiple visit to same patient

Hello,

I need to register multiple visits to same patient and each patient could
have different diagnosis in each visit

The number of visits is unknown

I tried Multiple events with registration but no success

Kindly help with guide lines or you need more details I could give

Thanks very much

Hello Nami,

DHIS2 is not a classic medical record system for handling diagnosis that are determined at the point of interaction between a patient and a doctor. DHIS2 is for managing routine services/visits - meaning you need to know, before hand, the diagnosis you are going to provide to a patient.

Can you tell us more about your needs - especially the diagnosis part? Is it possible to talk about types of diagnosis here - something like diagnosis for TB, HIV, Cancer, … whatever disease type you wanted to handle? You can also talk about diagnosis at dataelement level - for example “general diagnosis” and in this diagnosis measuring weight, blood pressure, temperature, and other key aspects…

You need to decide on the diagnosis types - this can not be left open. Defining the diagnosis types helps you to decide on the number of stages a program can have. Then you can make the stages repeatable - this allows you to handle multiple visits per patient per diagnosis.

Hope this helps.

Thank you,

Thanks very much

I will provide more details

But for now what you mentioned was very helpful when you mentioned the repeatable stages maybe I could use that

Thanks again and I will provide more info

Dear Abyot,

What you mentioned is exactly what I want to do “DHIS2 is not a classic medical record system for handling diagnosis that are determined at the point of interaction between a patient and a doctor”

I want to be able to record different diagnosis and medicine for same patient on different visits the patient might have different diagnosis in each visit or I we could describe different medicine in each visit

I was able to record multiple event to same patient but always appear the same diagnosis code that was recorded in the first visit

But unfortunately as you mentioned it could not be done on DHIS2 or maybe there is a way I hope so

Any new guide lines I would be thankful

Regards,

Hi Nami,

there should be nothing stopping you using DHIS 2 for this. You deal with an unknown number of stages you can set a program stage to be repeatable. For that stage include a data element called “primary diagnosis” or whatever suits you. That data element could be linked to an option set with diagnosis. Then you can capture diagnosis per stage / visit.

regards,

Lars

For every visit you need to create a new event. That way you can record a new diagnosis each time a visit is made.

But unfortunately as you mentioned it could not be done on DHIS2 or maybe there is a way I hope so
