At PIH Mexico we’re using CommCare for mobile form entry. We have a WIP OpenMRS implementation. I’d like to integrate CommCare with OpenMRS.

The main features we’d ultimately like to have are:

  • visits from CommCare show up in OpenMRS
  • patient-CHW assignments in OpenMRS show up in CommCare
  • last n observations for certain concepts in OpenMRS show up in CommCare

I’m interested in knowing what people have achieved thus far, and how the experience of development and maintenance is. I hear Possible (@laxman?) has an OpenMRS/CommCare integration, about which I guess I’d also like to know how Bahmni-specific their integration is.

I think the Possible Health integration might be the most recent. At one point there was also an OpenMRS/MoTeCH/CommCare integration, which was based on vanilla OpenMRS.

Can anyone do me a favor and tag some people who might know about this?

Would be pretty cool if OpenMRS Talk supported tagging orgs…

Does it help to search on Talk using this text? CommCare

For posterity:

I had a call with a Bahmni implementer who said that Dimagi is working on a CommCare integration. It is not ready yet. I got the impression that it won’t be Bahmni-specific. It will support two-way data syncing between CommCare and OpenMRS.
