  • Organization Update

      • Moving forward with RI to catch every one up to speed with our specific intentions
      • Still completing individual phone calls for OpenMRS vision statement
    • Online Presence
      • Burke working with Michael Downey to get more memory on virtual machine
        • More memory means considering the transition over to JIRA

        • Michael is creating updates on WorkPress site
  • Road Map
    • 1.8 and 1.9
      • We are starting to move in front of the design for each
      • Continue to identify what will be included and excluded from each version
    • Hospital Information Systems
      • Discussion occurred over what we mean by "support" for hospital systems
        • On the road map people identified this as a priority
        • Plan is to ask community/users what specifically they are looking for
        • Hamish spoke with Richard Gakuba in Rwanda about hospital systems and the ability to use OpenMRS as a desktop EMR project, eventually looking towards a point where doctors can do direct data entry
    • Mobile Data Collection
      • As we work with more community health interfaces, we need to address metadata issues about how to assign families or data to families rather than individuals
        • This is in reference to a case when a home visit is made to the entire family and making the data during this visit easier to record
      • Additional ideas:
        • Have the ability to design forms from the OMRS side and having ways to collect those on multiple and different devices
        • Creating a way to interact with data on mobile device rather than just collecting the data (ie. having the ability to review previous data)
      • Suggestions:
        • OMRS is doing something to help those data collection tools to work with OMRS
        • We need an idea of what the mobile community needs
        • What is the essential workflow for a scenario that we want to support
    • 17 June 2010
      • Hamish will provide more conversation about the hospital information system
      • Andy will revisit the mobile data collection piece
  • Invitation to International Free Software Forum
