HUMAN RESOURCE MODULE - N. Sai Manohar -Mentors Daniel Futerman Roger Friedman Carl Leinter PURPOSE The purpose of the project is to develop an OpenMRS module to maintain personnel information and generate reports useful at the clinical level and compatible with a national personnel system This module comes with a data model, API extensions, data entry forms and reports.

It contains the following entities.

Adding Staff – staff can be added to the system. A staff is created from an existing person in the system or by creating a new person. HR PAGES - Staff Demographics staff position page Adding a previous assignment Manage posts TASKS DONE Creating the basic structure of the module Creating the data model of the project. Creating the domain objects and hibernate mapping files. Creating Job structure and related classes (services). Creating required pages to manage jobs titles , posts and staff (admin functions) Creating HR manager functions such as employee positions and employment history. Investigated on how to package reports into the module, and have developed some reports using BIRT. TASKS REMAINING Include packaging required sql data into the module (isco_codes , reports etc.), Including already-defined HR roles and privileges into the module Documenting the system.
