OpenLMIS Acceleration Brief
As a supplement to the initial Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation grant, VillageReach was awarded additional funding to accelerate and complete the re-architecture of OpenLMIS and release the version 3 series. The development of the vaccine module was also included in the supplemental award.
Additional information from Acceleration Brief on areas of focus for the vaccine module:
(i) Front-end data collection flexibility and configurability for different vaccine supply chain designs and associated workflow variations (i.e., push and pull distribution models)
(ii) Vaccine reporting and analytics
(iii) Vaccine demand planning (ideal stock amount, population data management, replenishment calculations)
(iv) Vaccine stock management, including accounts for doses vs. vials, and robust tracking of expiry dates, batch and VVM status (optionally via bar coding)
(v) Vaccine cold chain equipment management and integration
See the Living Product Roadmap for details on the software development timelines.
After the initial workshop and prioritization, the current initial MVP scope is outlined here.
