Ideas for the 2018 OpenMRS Conference Hackathon

There is a huge requirement for this still, even in Mozambique, they are still on OpenMRS 1.11.x and sync is key. In KenyaEMR, they really need that for their sites synchronization. Yes, this will be one of the hackthon items. Are you at the conference we catch up and discuss this?

Thanks for information. Solomon Simba from PATH is on the conference. You can try to catch him.

I just revised the ideas that we can discuss and agree on them this friday here

@dkayiwa @mseaton can you coodinate the data exchange bit? @mogoodrich and @SolDevelo you have been mentioned to lead on items in this years hackthon @christine there the revised list. Am planning to have a short discussion after the conference, agree on few things, split into groupd and then start working

Hi All. Unfortunately FACES was not able to attend this year’s conference but we shall be back next year. Was this item discussed/handled at the hackathon? If so, kindly share with us the outcome.

OK, I will try to translate from it. The first feature I noticed is having something like (good reads) web service for clinicians who are using OpenMRS. I mean if a doctor or a pharmacist or a nurse is using OpenMRS, he/she can have a book that he/she is reading and wants to share with his/her colleagues, and can have a discussion forum for the textbook they are using. This can resonate with clinical decision support later on in OpenMRS. :slight_smile:

@eddiemu we did NOT have any of the @SolDevelo representative in the conference, the point person from PATH who was supposed to lead the way did make it to the hackthon session, we ended up shelving it for offline engagements.

Dear community,

we’re currently working on making the Sync 2.0 module compatible with the OpenMRS 1.x. The work is almost finished and then the module will be ready to test. It’ll be great if some of the community could take a part in the test phase.

Hi @ningosi,

the Soldevelo team are planning the Sync 2.0 showcase meeting (Sync 2.0 Showcase). It will be a possibility to see the new features it will be great if you will take a part.

Do you know something about a plan to use the Sync 2.0 into KenyaEMR?

Hi @alalo Thanks for the headup! let me copy in @aojwang and @eddiemu to give the status of KenyaEMR and sync2.

@ningosi, @alalo thanks so much for pinging us. We’ll definitely be interested in the show case. We are still on 1.12.0 upgrade with plans to upgrade to 2.x soon.

@eddiemu we realized privilege issue with sync in KenyaEMR and we are resolving it. @botienoh this is good for us.

@aojwang, this is good news to hear it being resolved. We are on hand to help with testing if needed.
