Hi, my name is Paul Chinn. I am a volunteer consultant helping over ythe next couple of years to bring to life a new charity maternity centre in Arusha, Tanzania.
I am busily trying to define information needs and find affordable and supportable solutions for all aspects of the centres work.
I come to OpenMRS after a couple of abortive involvements with other open source EMR/MRS systems and am hoping (maybe even praying) that my experience with OpenMRS is better.
I will admit to being a bit nervous of having to layer Tomcat and Java on the top of what I had hoped would be if not a simple but at least standard operating environment with Apache, MySQL and PHP, but so far the technical implementation has straightforward and I am encourage by the active support network.
