I updated the funding barometer. We’ve had a little run of donations adding $1300 to the coffers in the last week.

Hi,

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:
http://www.open-emr.org/wiki/index.php/Demographics_(MU2)

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:
http://www.open-emr.org/wiki/index.php/Patient-specific_education_resources_(MU2)

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:
http://www.open-emr.org/wiki/index.php/Active_Projects#Clinical_Decision_Rules_.28CDR.29_Engine
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:
http://www.open-emr.org/wiki/index.php/Development_Demo#192.168.1.132
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…

Hi,

For the 5/10/14 conference call (note these are not official notes; just going from memory):

Attendees: Brady, David, Jan, Jit, Lou, Roberto

Brady discussed the Demographics MU2 item that Jan is working on, which is very close to completion:
http://www.open-emr.org/wiki/index.php/Demographics_(MU2)
https://sourceforge.net/p/openemr/discussion/202506/thread/12b346fd/?limit=25&page=1#1502

Roberto discussed the project that he is working on to improve the sql upgrade script(automating the version upgrading from rather than having the user enter it in manually). Brady discussed several issues related to supporting “legacy” upgrades and also correctly identifying version when it is a “dev” version. Plan to place a post on the pertinent sourceforge thread for further guidance from the community.
http://www.open-emr.org/wiki/index.php/Active_Projects#Upgrading
https://sourceforge.net/p/openemr/discussion/202506/thread/d50e7631/

Brady discussed that recently there are more developers (including volunteer and professional) showing interest in the project and that there are not many easy projects (ie. hello world openemr projects) for new developers. Resources (ie. my time) to guide these new developers are also running low (this involves providing direction and reviewing code). David suggested placing more projects on the Active Projects page (http://www.open-emr.org/wiki/index.php/Active_Projects). Jan also suggested newer developers working with each other on projects; for example, Roberto working with Jan and colleagues on their CDR project (http://www.open-emr.org/wiki/index.php/Active_Projects#Integrate_Plans_into_the_Admin_GUI). Both are excellent ideas which plan to implement.

Until next week…

There is a long list of Country names in every OpenEMR version. But in the list of Country (Demographics) there is an option only of “Other” and “USA”.

Somewhere in the development this list that seems to be complete is not used for Country name. A loss for Internationalization.

But at is it is easy to add your own favorite Country names. (But it could be a matter of Copy Paste in the sql upgrade.)

Hi,

For the 9/6/14 conference call (note these are not official notes; just going from memory):

Attendees: Brady, David, Jan, John, Julie

Brady discussed the ongoing MU2 testing. Unofficially (from emails from Tony), it appears that OpenEMR has passed 15 of total 45 items (note that the code for some of these items is still under code review). There are 7 more items that would pass, but didn’t get to testing (will be done at next testing date). This does not include items within ZH’s Care Coordination module, which will likely start getting tested at the next testing date. Many thanks to Tony and Ensoftek for their work on this.

Brady reported the Demographics MU2 item that Jan has been working on is completed and has been committed to the official codebase.

Jan discussed the Clinical Decision Rules engine project, which is adding plans creation/selection in the gui. It is currently undergoing revision after 1st review.

Julie discussed about EMR Direct and its successful progress in obtaining certification for a critical trust bundle:
http://www.emrdirect.com/
http://www.open-emr.org/wiki/index.php/Direct

We (mostly Brady and David) discussed the medications and prescriptions in OpenEMR. It has come up that the Medication recording in OpenEMR is not very good and that having an RXNORM database integration with this stuff would be very beneficial. It was felt that it may be best to first integrate prescription module fully with RXNORM and then incorporate this into the Medication module(either by migrating medication issues to prescription table or by adding required data elements to the issues table). After Jan and colleagues complete their CDR project, they may consider taking this on:

Until next week…
