OpenMRS stands for 'Open Medical Records System', and is a major open-source
project aiming to build medical information systems for developing
countries. Their general goal is to provide a low-cost (free) solution for
tracking patient conditions. Their specific goal is to fight AIDS in Africa.
The project is gaining a lot of momentum. They have strong links with
organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), corporate
sponsorship from companies such as Google, and are already deployed in 12
They are in the process of adding analytics to the system using mondrian. I
have committed to helping them out, and Matt Casters (architect of Pentaho
Data Integration aka Kettle) is also involved. They are looking for
committers do build the mondrian schema and analytics, and that's why I'm
reaching out to the mondrian community.
Maybe you have used mondrian in a commercial project, and are looking to use
those skills in a project which makes the world a better place. Maybe you
have some experience with databases and data modeling, but want to hone
those skills on a real project and improve your CV. If you are student or
have limited income, they have some stipends available.
I urge you to get involved with this project. Go to the website and sign up!
If you know anyone who would be interested in this project, please pass on
this email to them.
