Collaboration with OpenELIS, an open source lab information system

Posted by jblaya on April 27, 2008

In the last few weeks the OpenMRS team along with collaborators from the University of Washington have been meeting with members of the OpenELIS team, an open source laboratory information management system (LIMS) that’s been implemented in Minnesota, Kansas, Missouri, and Vietnam. The members of this team are from the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) and from labs in the US. Conversations have focused on how the OpenELIS group can learn from the community building experience of OpenMRS and how the two systems can connect to provide countries with the possibility of implementing both systems.

Our first meeting last month was extremely productive. Dr. Gail Cassell was also present. We’re now coordinating meetings to meet the two goals mentioned above: helping in creating an OpenELIS developer community and connecting both systems.
