Hello @wanyee
Can you describe steps to make fonctionnal the module fingerprintmanager in the reference application of OpenMRS?

Hello @kamdemclems

I haven’t seen that module at openmrs module repo neither have I seen it on openmrs github account, if you can point me where it is, I can be in a better position to advice. However, for any module that supports UI framework and app framework can be easily be intergarted with reference application. It is a matter of configuring your app descriptor(usually a json file is added in the apps folder in your web layer) that will hook that application on refApp. Let me or @wanyee know if you need more help.

Thank you for your reply @ningosi i have seen it at for the Kenya EMR distribution. Breaf i am looking for a module to implement Unique Identifier in OpenMRS and i found this post.

Ok. This seems to be a different system that cannot run on OpeMRS, it could be installed differently and interfaced later with OpenMRS. @gitahi86 and @gwasilwa can shed more light on that.

Thank you @ningosi I am waiting ! And with regard to ugandaemr-fingerprint can you explain me how it works? How to make it work?

I will let @ssmusoke and @carapai comment on this

Ok thank you for your quick reply. I am waiting. We want to build an EMR in our city and i want to build a demo locally. cc @ssmusoke, @carapai

Hello @ningosi, @carapai and @ssmusoke please can you reply ?
