Update on status of the tool, implementation pipeline
Local instances for Zimbabwe & Cameroon are ready; CHAI country teams received trainings; they will then train the MoH. Production instance will be developed after training instance; that takes a few days
Conversations with DRC re: a lab use case ; CHAI and VR teams in DRC. They are interfacing with the digital health agency with/in MoH. There is a COVID-specific group too
idea to supplement supply chain data with data from EMR or data from other systems; track and trace as commodities move through clinics
Ashraf: GS1 and HL7 are globally recognized standards; starting conversation in OpenHIE; HOw do we ensure that we gain the gravitas so that they are recognized and followed? Carl: done under auspices of Joint Council. It took a while to get going to make sure there was consensus of major actors to make sure GS1 HQ and other important actors are involved
Brian: this is a game-changer for linking supply chain with other health info systems
You wont have to pay for a GLN; gives flexibility around licensing and fees that you dont have under the FHIR standard
Study Tours have been cancelled indefinitely; we have roughly 50k of unspent funds. Ideas to re-purpose funds to serve a similar purpose?
Suggestion: Create an online user course for OpenLMIS: take user manual and turn it into a course; skills guide
Open iHRIS was recently able to do this successfully using moodle; could track analytics of what skills people were interested in
This would entail hiring a consultant to take our our existing content that we use for user training and convert it into online learning material; this provides a new service that would have lasting benefit and facilitate future implementations
Brian: in addition to online learning; a demo site for 'safe play/learning'
Ashraf: could divide funding for specific countries to highlight what is unique about an implementation/highlight it in video/demo/comms piece
Gaurav: what are our objectives that we have not been able to address
Brandon: training idea is interesting; trick would be that every implementation is so different; the material would need to be genericized. Video would not be helpful. With COVID taking many of our resources, perhaps we could consider using these funds for COVID
Implementation opportunity: an opportunity for an implementation or deployment of the OpenLMIS software. Usually this is done at a national or sub-national level within a ministry of health. This can also include feature work which would be done within the implementation and contributed back to the global codebase.
Community opportunity: a funding opportunity to support an organization or individual to work directly on the global codebase and/or administrate the community processes. This may include funding specific features on the community roadmap.
Country implementation opportunities:
This Trello tableis being updated on an ongoing basis; to help the core team to track and manage implementation opportunities, but also provides a detailed snapshot of the scope and status of current implementation opportunities for stakeholders.
New Trello table! Similar to the above table, this tool is being used by the stewards to track our exploring of new product opportunities and partnerships
