Reference Application Road Map

Obsolete

This page has become obsolete. See the Technical Roadmap for current information.

Vision

Our current goal is to get a decent starter feature set into the OpenMRS Reference EMR and have it tested and packaged into a new standalone in time for the 2013 OpenMRS Implementers Conference in October 2013.

Reference Implementations

Before we consider a feature to be complete, we believe it should be tested in production in a real-life OpenMRS implementation. That would be the "reference implementation" for the feature in question. It would provide feedback about the specific requirements and user experience of the feature, and help define the feature's future needs.

The tables below indicate both the status of coding up a feature in the RefApp codebase, as well as whether we've identified a reference implementation for that feature, and its status there.

(At present, Mirebalais plays an out-sized role here, but the goal is to have different reference implementations for different features. We still need to define a process around this.)
