Sign up for #OMRS18 Lightning Talks

Suggest topics for the Lightning Talks session

Lightning talks are rapid fire talks (rigidly limited to 5 minutes maximum) to allow a single session to cover a dozen or so presentations. It’s a great way to share your ideas with the community as you get 5 minutes of their undivided attention.

Even if you don’t have ideas for sessions to suggest in mind, please take a moment to browse sessions being suggested below and “like” (click the heart) any suggestions that you would like to attend. You may get some ideas for new topics from seeing others’ suggestions.

Please include a title, a short description, who might be interested in the topic, what people should expect to get out presentation, and who would be presenting (can be yourself or may be others). Putting “####” in front of your title will highlight it in your post.

  • Please limit replies only to sessions (avoid discussions in this thread) – i.e., if you want to discuss any entry below or this topic in general, click on the timestamp for the post (on the top right edge of it) and then click the “+ New Topic” link to create a linked topic.

  • If you see something you like… vote for it! If someone has suggested an idea you would like to see, please “like” the post by clicking its heart icon.

This lighting talk further expounds on my thoughts on how to approach at customizing OpenMRS for large scale rollouts > 50 sites, how to setup, manage and distribute the implementation code. This is based on experiences with UgandaEMR which is currently running in ~800 sites in Uganda.

These ideas were initially documented in this blog post
