The initial process of prescribing a drug is independent from stock
management. So a doctor prescribe the medicament and then the patient
can go to a pharmacy that has that product to pick it up.
In GNU Health, when using the health_stock module, we keep track of the
amount of units of that medicament in real-time (field "quantity"). You
can see the total quantity on stock for the different locations at
anytime on the medicament list view.
There are several ways to approach the customization of what your need :
A) At prescription time: The doctor can get a warning when picking that
medicament in the location warehouses of that institution. I don't
really like this much because it interferes with the prescription
process, but it can be handy on institutions that deliver most of their
meds through their own pharmacy. We could have a "local
delivery" attribute that would enable this verification when set.
B) At the pharmacy delivery: When the pharmacy generates the stock move
(wizard on the prescription model), she or he will get a warning.
Both have pros and cons :)
Thoughts are most welcome.
