Background


OpenMRS is not just software; OpenMRS is a community of developers and implementers around the world trying to improve health in resource-constrained environments.  The software is being used in countries all over the world (see the OpenMRS Atlas).  In fact, we're not sure how many places OpenMRS is being used.  Thus far, we have been keeping a list of activate implementations manually through word of mouth.  We would like to automate (or at least semi-automate) the OpenMRS Atlas information, but do not want to force implementations to join the atlas or even allow it to happen accidentally; rather, we would like to create a way for implementations to opt-in to the joining the OpenMRS Atlas in a manner that is fun and useful to them.

Purpose

The purpose of this project is to create a module that makes it fun & easy for implementations to join the OpenMRS Atlas by enabling the module, setting their location, and selecting the information that they want to share with the community.  The information shared could simply be the name & location of the implementation, but could be expanded to include contact information for the site administrator and/or basic statistics (counts of patients/encounter/observations).

While it's fun to see where OpenMRS is being used, it can be very useful in making connections between sites that otherwise might not know about each other.

Design Ideas

Use the Google Map API (see demo) to allow the user to interact with a map to place a marker on their location:

Use the Google Map API to display a custom bubble containing the information as it will be displayed on the OpenMRS Atlas.
