OpenMRS intergration with Medical Mobile

Question: We are looking for an extension of OpenMRS that can support the community services using mobile devices. We are looking for solutions and one of them is MedicMobile, has anyone here ever used Medic Mobile? We would like to hear and share experiences from other implementations that have done the same. The implementation is UgandaEMR in Uganda.

Have you also evaluated mUzima? @ayeung can fill you in.

Right now we are looking at all available solutions, sorry i forgot to ask about mUzima, but we would love to here from all the mobile solutions that work with openmrs so we can choose the one that serves our needs

Thanks, @dkayiwa and @solemabrothers! We would be happy to set up a demo and answer any questions you might have. mUzima has been used for chronic disease management programs as well as Kenya MOH eHTS (HIV Testing and Screening/Linkage) in over 60 sites. Also, Mother Infant Prevention Program will be launched in 20 sites in a month or so.

@ayeung is it possible to set up a meeting today and have a demo on how muzima works?

Hi, @solemabrothers, our team is available today 4pm EAT. Let us know if that works for your team. Also, it would be helpful to know your use cases so that we can prepare the relevant demo. Thank you!

@ayeung I will be available at that time, how can we join for this meeting.

@solemabrothers, you can join via https://zoom.us/j/632829032. Talk to you soon!

I am waiting,will be with you in the next 15 minutes

Great! We are on https://zoom.us/j/632829032 now.

Hi @solemabrothers ! I work with Medic Mobile and I know some of my colleagues in Uganda met with the UgandaEMR / METS team recently, but I wanted to respond here as well and provide some additional insight for others into our integrations and interoperability.

The Core Framework of the Community Health Toolkit (CHT) built by Medic Mobile supports integrated care across several use cases including maternal and child health, infectious diseases, and chronic diseases.

In terms of integration with OpenMRS, the Core Framework has existing functionality that allows you to configure integrations with any system using an API. One of the first integrations that CHT implementers built was a closed loop workflow in West Africa where referrals from CHWs were sent to a bespoke EMR and confirmations from the EMR were sent back to CHWs. We’ve also designed and prototyped a few integration workflows specifically with OpenMRS, working alongside OpenMRS developers. Last year we also attended the OpenHIE conference and built an integration with OpenMRS using OpenHIM.

I’d also invite anyone with questions about interoperability or our tools to join the CHT Community Forum.

@ayeung can you please provide me with some documentation about muZima in terms of workflows and any other related information.

@solemabrothers, regarding workflow, it varies from implementations so there is no standard workflow. For other related information, please see https://wiki.muzima.org. Thanks!

@ayeung I request to have a meeting with your development team to take us through the set up process of mUzima

@solemabrothers, we have a community call on every Wednesday 4pm EAT via https://zoom.us/j/680701734. Please let me know if your team can join us next week so I can include this in the agenda item. If your team is interested in joining today, we are going to have a demo on mUzima Form Builder and Converter. Cheers!

@ayeung we are currently in the field and may not be able to join in today, however next week is fine with us, we will join in
