Meeting Minutes

  • Lance Armstrong PHR Project
    • The Lance Armstrong organization looked at several possibilities for a patient portal and the creation of a personal health record (PHR) for individuals with colorectal cancer
      • The organization found OpenMRS and want to collaborate and use OpenMRS as a framework or platform to build from
      • Burke urged contacts at the organization to begin using the forums and e-mail to benefit from quicker answers in greater bandwidth
      • NEXT STEPS:
        • Discuss the allocation of OpenMRS developer time (i.e. "x" hours each week)
        • Schedule a meeting to work out a reasonable agreement between organizations
        • Invite Jeremy to our OpenMRS events such as code review to show how OpenMRS operates
  • Road Map 1.8/1.9/2.0
    • 1.8
      • Pushing the envelope a bit with timing, but everything is reasonably on track
      • NEXT STEPS:
        • Get Maven by Monday, 16 August (in preparation for 1.8 Hackathon)
          • Maven is required to do the performance testing, but worst case scenario, we may have to complete the hackathon without it
    • 1.9
      • Solutions are going into place for a number of current issues
      • For remaining issues, time will be allotted on a dev call to finalize additional solutions
    • 2.0
      • Darius is moving forward on this and can provide more detail in time
  • 1.8 Hackathon
    • The hackathon starts next week: Thursday and Friday, 19-20 August
    • Wyclif will take the leadership position as the release manager
      • We currently have a list of about 20 items for the hackathon
        • Some of these items need more specification
    • MVP can provide 40,000 - 60,000 concepts from the concept dictionary
    • After the hackathon:
      • 80% or more of the code will be complete for 1.8
      • Perhaps use some time with the Implementers Meeting for code review
  • Nonprofit Updates
    • Bylaws
      • Dawn drafted bylaws based on the Indiana Code
      • NEXT STEPS:
        • Generate and agree upon the details within the bylaws and Dawn will add these into the draft
    • Software License
      • Find legal expertise in outlining the pros and cons for the various open source licenses available
      • NEXT STEPS:
        • This is something Dawn can discuss with the legal counsel
    • Board of Directors
      • NEXT STEPS:
        • From the consolidated list of nominations, Dawn will send out the top three ranked nominees from each group and send to the leadership members who will then vote for one nominee in each category
