For the 4/19/14 conference call (note these are not official notes; just going from memory):
Attendees: Brady, Jack, Jan, Lou, Robert, Rod
Jan discussed the Demographics MU2 item, which he is currently developing:
Rod discussed the Patient-specific education resources MU2 item, which he is currently analyzing. Plan to contact Tony regarding obtaining funding from OEMR for this item:
Brady discussed the Care Coordination module by ZH(will cover lots of MU2 items), which is currently under review.
Jan and Brady discussed enhancements to the CDR (Clinical Decision Rules) engine, specifically several projects described here:
Spent time describing the current CDR engine, which allows turning on/off a rule for patient, but does not allow patient specific rules. For example, there is currently a rule that ensure a INR level is checked monthly if a patient is on coumadin. If I want to remove this rule for a specific patient, this is currently supported in OpenEMR. However, if I want to customize the rule (for example, check the INR every 2 months rather than 1 month) for a patient, this is not currently supported. This is what is meant by supporting patient specific rules.
Robert discussed the ongoing UI enhancement project which incorporate the Foundation Framework. This stuff is much more modern looking than OpenEMR's current look and feel and you can be check it out on the following demo:
The main issue is that it will require modification to a majority of the OpenEMR scripts, which is why many of the pages in the demo are awkward appearing. Plan to treat this as a code walk-though and only include the new styling in pages that have been converted. Robert plans to build this mechanism and convert some of the main pages and then submit it for review. If things look good at that point and the community agrees, could then bring it into the official codebase and Robert could then slowly and steadily do the code walk through.
Until next week...
