At OMRS18, we held an incredible brainstorming session where we shared our dreams of how we might make OpenMRS and our community the best thing in our lives and in the world. Those of you who were there - probably over 100 - generated over 1,500 ideas! We’ve been going through them for common themes and over the next several weeks, you can read summaries for each of them on the OpenMRS blog.
We want to start bringing these ideas to life, which means that they need to be reflected in our 2019 operational plan. We’ve already identified where many of your ideas can be put into this year’s plan. In some cases, they are already slotted into one of the plans for:
1: Develop and evolve the Platform
2: Develop and evolve the Ref App
3: Encourage and support distributions/foster partnerships
4: Build and maintain educational support/capacity
5: Support content management
6: Ensure efficient and effective operations/community engagement
We still have work to do - and you can contribute in multiple ways. Lead or co-lead an objective! Review the plans that we come up with and make sure they hold together! Tell us we’re being (un)realistic! Come up with metrics!
