OpenMRS 3 - Benefits of modularity in an open-source Electronic Health Record
Hi - this (long) presentation discusses how increased modularity may help promote collaboration within an open-source electronic health record. It touches on a bit on everything - modularity first principles, user interface components, system architecture, distributed organizational governance.
