Describe manual notification for callbacks


In the 1.0.0 model, callbacks are assumed to be internal to the TP engine. However, in many cases, the callback of a hand-off is effectively notified in the real world, e.g. by patient coming to a reception, or a sample or document being physically received.

Right, Manual_notification is just a kind of event that is notified e.g. by someone receiving a fax (e.g. lab result), package etc, and manually pulling up some form to notify it to the system.

… or scanning the patient’s health insurance card on the front desk that notifies the system he’s physically there? That could be a system_notification as well, but either way, doesn’t that solve your scenario?

I’ve removed the CALLBACK_NOTIFICATION.manual_notification attribute, and documented these kinds of cases instead as a pseudo-callback. I.e. there is no formal addition to the model for this kind of case.

I think this is okay now. I found a typo and made a comment on github, but will accept the task here.

I fixed that typo, it will come through in the wash…
