I tried to place a drug order with quantity:30, quantityUnits:Tablet(s), and I got this error:
This behavior is wrong.
CIEL includes Dosing unit (162384) and Dispensing units (162402). Arguably this latter should be called Packaging units, but Andrew Kanter is the authority on this.
Best practice configuration of OpenMRS should be to use these CIEL concepts:
- order.drugDosingUnitsConceptUuid = 162384 (as uuid)
- order.drugDispensingUnitsConceptUuid = 162402 (as uuid)
Given this configuration, drug orders should be allowed to have any concept in either set for quantityUnits.
I propose that org.openmrs.api.impl.OrderService.getDrugDispensingUnits() should return the union of the configured sets.
