OpenMRS Design Forums are one-hour calls twice each week for the purpose of discussing any design-related issues within the OpenMRS Community. The calls are open to anyone and routinely attended by experienced developers and clinical informatics specialists. We encourage all members of the community to join our design calls that are of interest and helpful to them. Learn more and how to join at http://om.rs/d. The design call is apt at several stages of design:
- At the start of a design process, bring your ideas for review by the broader community to get validation of your ideas and some feedback on directions to go.
- In the middle of a project, share your prototypes and get feedback from experienced developers and clinicians in a higher bandwidth format than email or IRC.
- When you encounter important decision points and see a few choices, share some brief background and your options and get help making the decision.
How do you get your topic on a Design Forum agenda?
Simply reply below with your proposed topic. Please try to include these 4 pieces of information:
Title. Short descriptive title for agenda item.
Description. Context for people who may not be directly involved in the work. Include links to JIRA issue(s), Talk discussion(s), wiki page(s), or other relevant resources for the discussion. It’s also helpful to summarize your specific goals for the discussion (what question(s) you are trying to answer).
Required attendee(s). Who you believe must join the call for it to be productive. We’ll use this to schedule the call when they can join.
Desired timing. Next available slot? Or is there a specific design forum you’d like to target.
NOTE: This topic is intended for people to easily propose new topics for design forum agendas. Further discussions about proposed topics, including logistics of scheduling are considered “off topic”, so please create a new topic for those discussions. Please refer to our conventions for arranging and discussing design topics.
