At Partners In Health, we still have a convoluted way of adding CIEL concepts to our OpenMRS software deploy. Hopefully this will be replaced by the ongoing OCL work.
In the past, we supported an OpenMRS cloud-based server (mdsbuilder) with the latest OpenMRS and CIEL releases, and used that to create metadata-sharing packages which were imported into the PIH concept server and module packages (https://github.com/PIH/openmrs-module-mirebalaismetadata/tree/master/api/src/main/resources). That server was available to the OpenMRS community.
Since the mdsbuilder server was deleted, I have a local CIEL SDK which I use privately for our pipeline.
- What’s the current state of the OCL/OpenMRS server? Does this have the CIEL dictionary and could this be used for creating mds packages? Is this on the latest OpenMRS release? @darius?
- Would it be helpful to have an OpenMRS server with the latest CIEL dictionary to replace mdsbuilder? Would others use it? @ssmusoke? @sletchford?
- If so, can OpenMRS provide this infrastructure? It’s straightforward OpenMRS (2.1.3) with Legacy UI (1.3.3), Metadata sharing (1.5.0), and Metadata mapping (1.3.4) modules. (No problem with upgrading any of these versions.)
