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.

The presentation is available on YouTube or via text.

Today’s design call covered a few parts from this presentation, but this post contains more background & detail. A separate (much shorter) post will summarize today’s design call.
