OpenMRS Concept Cooperative
- What it is
- A way to share OpenMRS concepts between users/organizations
- A technical infrastructure to facilitate this sharing
- Implementations send their concepts which are then available for "voting" by downloading them. (i.e., The more things are downloaded, the higher their rank in the OCC.)
- Promotes (in theory and practically on a list) commonly used terminology of concepts
- Roger: People are looking for a modular way to get shared resources beyond just concepts. Can other stuff be shared too, and if so, how? What are the tactics?
- John: Maybe start with concepts and then move to other more complex items.
- ?docs:Paul: Original idea of OCC was to share more things beyond concepts, since things like forms are based on concepts.
- ?docs:Darius: Reports are more complex than forms, and that may complicate sharing (or at least reduce their usefulness).
- ?docs:Burke: We won't know what we're doing, and we won't do a great job for a while, but we should still design it and continually refine it based on user input. The largest challenge has been getting OCC to a functional/usable state.
- TODO: Further conversations probably need to happen on OCC strategy and tactics. ?Paul Biondich will facilitate those conversations.
- Technical components
- Web site to host the shared concept list
- Module to access that shared data and send your dictionary (except retired concepts) to the OCC servers
- A unique Implementation ID is used by each installation to identify and make sharing between specific systems possible
- What it is not
- It is not meant to be a development for new standards
- What needs to be done (not necessarily in this particular order)
- Get the OCC library up and running
- OCC library code will need to be updated to receive/send multiple versions of concepts
- Cleaning up what Lu has done on concept downloading (maybe 70% done)
- Make it more seamless to get concepts out of the OCC system
- Make it easier to group and download sets of concepts and easier manage them
- Ensure large (e.g. MVP dictionary) uploads are possible/feasible (UUID's?)
- How to move forward
- Ideas and possible new features
- ?docs:Darius: Users may not want to share their entire dictionaries (specific concepts can be retired to be excluded from the upload or the OCC maintainer could remove/disable them on the server)
- ?docs:Glen: Mappings to SNOMED CT
- ?docs:Roger: Allow direct sending or creation of an archive package for "offline" sending
- AMPATH will have the necessary environment for testing next week
- One week of testing. Due to some recent changes, an RC2 build is necessary for them to use.
- One patch needs to be reverted -- ?Jeremy Keiper is working on TRUNK-1833
- Current projected release date of 1.7 is 9 November 2010
- TODO: Update release date in JIRA
- Performance tests are up and running. CI is reporting the tests as successful despite a "failed" (i.e., long-running) individual test, but that's not a major issue.
- The latest test results are available at http://go.openmrs.org/performance
- Widgets, data exports, reporting, patient dashboard
- Darius has a test for Reporting Module that needs to be included.
- BIRT Reporting Module is being de-scoped for now because of lack of an accurate test and no resources to work on development for it.
- ?docs:Wyclif has had problems getting BIRT reports running in his dev system
- Darius: If someone could run a BIRT report with firebug stats and profiler output, people (even though they're not BIRT experts) could look at it for any obvious potential issues to fix. TODO ?docs:Darius will contact ?James Arbaugh to see if he could provide that.
- TODO: Wyclif will send out an e-mail to dev list with latest update and notify about freezing any new features for 1.8 on 16 November 2010.
- Current alpha release date for 1.8 is 2 December 2010
After Action Review
- Format seems fine
- Provide in advance an outline of information presented so people can follow along
- We're still missing our timelines a bit
- Screen sharing could help when there is something to share
- Backchannel IRC transcript
- Audio recording of the call: Listen online or download - available after the meeting
