With EU GDPR guidelines out, is anyone planning to implement any solutions to make Openmrs/Bahmni GDPR compliant? Please let us know if there is any work going on in this area.

Hi There @pramidat at this time , there is no one working on this area. Would you like to start this process? Let me know and we can arrange a design forum session for this.

Hi @jwnasambu, Yes. I am talking about the same EU GDPR link you posted

Sure @c.antwi, we will keep you in loop if we are planning to work on this.

There has been some work done over the past 6 months with the S&O group. @darius and @burke did quite a bit of research into what would need to happen technically for our communication channels, and @terry and myself met with the compliance & legal team at Mozilla to better understand the legal requirements and implications. Those discussions are here and here. The current status is that we are awaiting technical updates from the providers of the technologies we use for our communications, in order to be in compliance. For the code itself, we have decided to follow the Mozilla model to not address historical text in the code, as this becomes the responsibility of the person or organization downloading the code.

It would be great to hear other suggestions for addressing compliance! :slight_smile:
