There is a growing conversation in the OpenMRS community about reinvisioning our platform and building a new, more modular, framework.
The need for this is well summarized by @burke recent presentation made at Regenstrief in November. It was the subject of discussion spurred by @gschmidt at the implementers meeting in Kenya. On Talk @bistenes has started a conversation from a technical side how components may be configured.
We envision a platform which will be easy to roll out and configure for smaller implementations but built on a modular framework such that larger roll-outs can deeply customize the same user interface to leverage and support the community’s efforts. We envision a platform which will easily support the global focus on chronic disease management.
We are planning to explain our ideas by describing and and mocking up an EHR which will focus on treatment of hypertension and HIV then show how, in a modular way, we could expand this platform to address diabetes, TB, malnutrition, maternal child health, and other verticals.
We aim to work openly and keep the community engaged in our process.
As a first step, does anybody have any feedback about the approach to this task ahead?
