I would like to inquire if the Biometrics module is already finalised and whether the tests on it are over? If tests are still ongoing I would love to be involved in the testing. I have experience in developing biometric fingerprint identification as you will see from my part time research here http://www.jomutech.co.ke/biometric_patient_id.php
I could share my experience if actively involved in biometrics authentication both fingerprint and facial (still tinkering with it).
@aeadara had spent the summer with us to help with biometrics (fingerprint) from the OpenMRS server side. It works to capture the fingerprint and store as person attribute as well as searching with fingerprint. We still need to work on the mobile side for more streamline workflow.
@judy I hope that the holidays are going well with you and you got back okay from the conference.
This module provides an excellent foundation for the Uganda program so please do share how we can leverage the work that you have done. We can also commit developer time and capacity to enhance the module both for our internal needs and the community needs cc @smuwanga and @jmpango
I am available on Wed, 6th Jan to discuss this on a call. Does that work for you @judy, @ssmusoke@smuwanga . We tried many different approaches, but I think the best approach depends on the kind of clients that you plan to use. With Windows, it is easy to use the WBF and work with different fingerprint readers and a standard template. With Linux, its slightly more convoluted because of not all device drivers work with libPAM. On Android clients, with Android 6.0 central API, its as easy as in Windows.
