On next week’s PAT call we have two important roadmap-related topics (and then hopefully we can get back to actually discussing features and functionality!)
Clarify the scope and timing of the next release (0.91)
Propose a roadmap to guide us for the next 6 months.
For short-term work, we had previously short-listed some work areas on the Feb 21 call.
For the roadmap, we’ve spent our last 4 hours of PAT calls making very quick assessments of the value to the Bahmni product of proposed roadmap items.
I just estimated the effort required to do each item. (I did this myself very quickly, so feedback is highly appreciated.)
Prior to the call, please familiarize yourself with the suggested items on this trello board and review/comment on their cost/benefit summary on this google sheet:
Please edit/suggest changes to priority and effort directly on this document, not on the trello board, since I did a one-time export…
For example by a very crude cost-benefit score (which is dominated by low-effort items) the highest-prioritized items would be these:
Value Cost Label
6 1 Form Builder Extensibility
5 1 Author Discharge Summary
5 1 Role Based Access for Dashboards
5 1 Role based access for reports
5 1 RTL Language Support for Bahmni
5 1 Bulk upload of patients and Lab results information in OpenELIS
5 1 Patient master documents storage
The call will be at 7am Seattle, 10am Boston, 15:00 Berlin, 5pm Nairobi, 7:30pm IST. See more time zones.
To look at this from another angle, here’s a view sorted by priority then by cost-benefit (removing things already resourced):
Priority Effort Label
Very High Low Form Builder Extensibility (mainly docs)
High Low Author Discharge Summary
High Low Role Based Access for Dashboards
High Low Role based access for reports
High Low RTL Language Support for Bahmni
High Low Bulk upload of patients and Lab results information in OpenELIS
High Low Patient master documents storage
High Medium Ability to sync all orderables from emr to erp
High Medium Medicine Administration Record (MAR)
High Medium Internationalization Gaps
High Medium Indicating priority for lab orders
High Medium Multi language sync between EMR and ELIS
High Medium Indicating non conformity for lab tests in EMR
High Medium Patient Record Viewable to Care Stream only
High Medium Meta Concepts should be set to Default locale
High Medium Favourites in Orders Tab
I don’t know how much this is welcome for this PAT call, but we have feedback coming from our latest implementation that went live a couple of weeks ago (limiting myself here to the more important points):
(Medication Ordering) Usual values to be picked from for units, drug forms, durations and duration units. This should be configurable through the config (presumably).
(Medication Ordering) Move the “Start Date” field to the top (before medication name) as it interrupts the tab group flow and is never changed.
For speeding up Meds ordering, the idea was to replace dropdowns and enhance textboxes with buttons for common amounts, eg  , routes and durations eg
Buttons would be to the right of or below the relevant textbox.
This would be much faster than dropdowns, and meds ordering is one of the bottlenecks.
For vitals/diagnoses widgets, we’d like them to be visible on the medication form (not close to), maybe at the top.
Oops, we had planned to have an extra PAT call this week to continue this discussion, but I see that conflicts with OpenMRS’s quarterly scrum of scrums call that I also lead. (I don’t know if @angshuonline can definitely attend or not.)
Do people want to…
(a) do this call without me
(b) try to do it one day earlier, Tuesday, i.e. in about 26 hours from now
(c ) just wait until next week for our regularly-scheduled call
