Meeting Minutes

  • NGO Updates
    • Articles of Incorporation will be filed Monday
      • This registers OpenMRS with the State of Indiana, and through federal application it can become a nonprofit
  • Summer Conference Details
    • Participation - 50 people
      • ~30 people to travel from outside the US
      • Number of Days Needed - 3-4
    • Concept Paper - Dawn and Burke will finalize this tomorrow
  • SMart
    • Linked in through a GSoC project
      • Question is whether the student knows what they are designing can be built upon
      • This requires OpenMRS developer guidance which can be a challenge in terms of available time
    • Next Step: Paul will write and talk about the leadership group's interest in going forward. Paul will write a concept note with Dawn to submit.
  • mHealth Platform Meeting next week and How it Relates to OpenMRS
    • Paul received an invitation to Open mHealth
      • Paul will attend next week to support coordinating open source activities
      • Leadership group will let Paul know anything to provide from OpenMRS
  • Thoughtworks Offer
    • Paul and Roy of ThoughtWorks discussed getting the main TW office more involved with OpenMRS
      • Main office is ~250 employees that could provide development support
    • Suggestions:
      • Darius-having all their developers for two days is more useful than having some for several days
      • Darius-possibly having something focused on 2.0 UI, web services
      • Paul-what other areas do we need more help?
        • Burke-it would be helpful if we describe smaller things or take one idea and apply it across the board
        • Burke-bring on some ppl for sprints
        • Darius-support around logic or combo of logic, data warehousing and reporting would be helpful
      • Paul will ask for web services expertise and also ask for a longer time for support with fewer developers at a time than all developers over a two-day period
  • Archetypes
    • Paul-the Brazilian system stores information as xml documents. some are handled in real time and others in a relational model.
    • Paul-believe we can have Beatrice and her folks participate in OpenMRS
    • Hamish-we need more demonstration on seeing how all of this works better in the field
    • Paul-this is designed at the ministry level, not the clinical level
    • Paul-this is just an opportunity to talk about archetypes, not to put any resources in it at this time
  • No labels
