2020-11-06: Technical Action Committee (TAC) Call

Friendly reminder - this week’s TAC is this Friday. Note the time is 1 hr earlier for people leaving daylight savings time (e.g., switching to PST/CST/EST), but remains the same UTC/EAT/IST/etc.

When: Friday at 7:30pm IST | 5pm Nairobi | 4pm Cape Town | 2pm UTC | 9am EST | 6am PST.

Where: om.rs/zoomtac


  • Reminder about Jira Graveyard Plan and upcoming “Jira Ninjas Club”
  • Led by @ibacher: (30 mins) (We’ve been trying to get to this topic for 2 meetings now!) How to handle OpenMRS Attributes → FHIR Extensions . Background: Active views throughout OpenMRS where data might need to be mapped into FHIR extensions. Difficult in some places. FHIR extensions are supposed to be identified by a URL → go to URL → get FHIR structured definition. Allow FHIR client to determine something about FHIR extension structure without needing that pre-programmed. Can we do this the way OMRS is set up right now?
