Thanks both @ball and @mogoodrich for attending our call and providing such valuable input about your work in Haiti.
Cool, I understand now your approach to localizing metadata names, that’s quite nifty! If we decide to go for reusing PIH Core directly in our Bahmni distro then we would have to expand the implementation of Ext I18N to support your logic. We just gave it a 20 min brainstorm and I think that it would work just fine. But just to be sure, in fact all metadata are saved in some default locale, correct? Presumably ‘fr’ as I can see here for encounter types (and from what Ellen said over the meeting)?
It is well possible that we don’t reuse PIH Core directly in our distro since we have now established this process of setting OpenMRS backend configs via our Initializer module. This enables us to not have any implementation-specific modules anymore, and I believe that we will want to stick to that paradigm by extending the Initializer further. But let’s see…
We will now have a conversation with the key stakeholders at our implementation site in Haiti to outline and prioritise the clinical workflows that they are most interested in. And we will come back to you after that for a follow up call to dig further into PIH/ZL, if that’s ok with you?
Thanks a bunch. So helpful and insightful!
