Ideas for OMRS17 Demonstrations

Demonstrations will be available to anyone wanting to present or discuss technologies or ideas in a more hands-on way. If there’s something you want to show or demonstrate to the entire OpenMRS Community, now is your chance! You’ll have your own station to present and discuss your topics as well as share the challenges you’ve experienced in deploying or implementing your work. If you’re interested in giving a demonstration, please submit your proposed demonstration below!

Please include a title and a short description. Putting “####” in front of your title will highlight it in your post.

  • Please limit replies only to proposed demonstrations (not side discussion) – i.e., if you want to discuss any entry below or this topic in general, click on the timestamp for the post (on the top right edge of it) and then click the “+ New Topic” link to create a linked topic.

  • If you want to see it… vote for it! If someone has suggested a demonstration you would like to see “like” the post by clicking its heart icon.


#### Foobar Distribution

We’ll demonstrate the initial release of this new OpenMRS distribution and how you can use it to track foos and bars at your clinic.


Partners In Health EMR Distribution

PIHEMR is Partners In Health’s OpenMRS distribution in Haiti and Liberia. We will demonstrate multiple implementations that cover a tertiary teaching hospital (University Hospital of Mirebalais, Haiti) and Primary Hospitals (in Haiti and Pleebo, Liberia).


KenyaEMR Distribution

KenyaEMR is OpenMRS distribution deployed in over 300 health facilities in Kenya. We currently introduced use of ETL and a data tool that connects to ETL tables for ad hoc reports.


APZU (Abwenzi Pa Za Umoyo) EMR Distribution

APZU EMR is Partners In Health’s OpenMRS distribution in Neno District in Malawi. We will demonstrate the implementation of this system used at a district hospital, community hospital, and various health centers for HIV and Non-communicable diseases (NCDs).


Banda Health’s Patient List Module

Banda Health formerly OpenHMIS would like to showcase one of our latest modules that is the Patient List Module. This module provides one with the ability to be able to list patients according to a certain criteria. For instance, list all male patients with an active visit.

Banda Health’s Visit Tasks Module

Banda Health formerly OpenHMIS would like to demostrate one of our latest modules, that is the Visit Tasks Module. This module gives a provider the ability to be able to note down and track various procedures that a provider would like to perform on a patient. This could be for example list and check off any series of tests or interventions to be done on a patient.

Banda Health’s Mobile Application

Banda Health formerly OpenHMIS would like to demonstrate our Android mobile application. We would like to get feedback from the community of what we have been able to come up with so far. For instance, the offline and online capabilities.

Regenstrief and the CDC have collaborated on developing an HIV-based Case-Based reporting module and a workflow to electronically identify and submit case-based reports to a health information exchange (HIE). We will demonstrate a Case-Based Reporting module and how it can be used to submit electronic case reports to an HIE.

BSIS - The Blood Safety Information System

For those interested in blood safety, haemovigilance, and use cases for integrating blood donor and blood transfusion information with an EMR, I’ll be demoing Jembi’s Blood Safety Information System (BSIS).

The effective management of information related to the collection, screening, distribution and use of safe blood products is a critical element for all blood services. The Blood Safety Information System (BSIS) is designed to manage donor and blood safety information from the point of donor registration to donation, through to laboratory testing, component processing and labelling, storage, and distribution to hospitals and clinics. The BSIS tool is primarily targeted for deployment in resource-constrained countries and supports the Africa Society for Blood Transfusion (AfSBT) 3-step certification and accreditation process and recommended best practice.
