Welcoming the OpenMRS FHIR Squad!

Dear Community,

Back in June, a conversation went wild on Slack about OpenMRS and FHIR. Since then, @pmanko has done a few OpenMRS University sessions on FHIR. We’ve reached a point where enough people are interested that we can get a squad together.

We hope that all community members who expressed interest in moving forward with the FHIR standard in OpenMRS will join a kick-off meeting.

Specific questions we would like to address in the kickoff meeting are:

  • What are our objectives to work together?
  • How are we going to operate?
  • What use cases are we addressing?
  • What is the current state of efforts with OpenMRS FHIR?

Possible times for a kickoff and weekly meetings include Wednesdays at 6pm Nairobi | 3pm UTC | 11am EDT | 8am PDT or Thursdays at 5pm Nairobi | 2pm UTC | 10am EDT | 7am PDT. All interested, please weigh in on what time would work best through this Doodle poll.

We’d love to start as soon as possible, so don’t wait another minute to take that Doodle poll! @pmanko @lober @janflowers @ccwhite23 @jdick @burke @dkayiwa @mseaton @ckemar @mogoodrich @ball @valvijo @caseynth2 @corneliouzbett @ssmusoke @c.antwi
