We use our CommCare app as an electronic medical record, and would like to set up a way to label when patient cases are closed because they are duplicates vs. when they are closed because the patient has stopped treatment, moved, died, etc., so that we can filter out duplicate records from our aggregate reports.
It seems to me that the best way to do this would be to add a hidden calculation to the forms that update a patient case property that indicates whether the record is a duplicate or not. We would want it to be possible to indicate that the record is a duplicate in 2 ways–first, users should be able to do this from the app if they fill out a form (that already exists) to close a case because it’s a duplicate; second, CommCare HQ users should be able to update this field before they close a case because it is a duplicate.
What is the best way to achieve these 2 things? Any insight you have would be greatly appreciated!
