Abstract

OpenMRS is an open source medical record system that is being implemented to help in the fight against epidemics like HIV/AIDS and Tuberculosis in developing countries. The OpenMRS project is built on top of open source frameworks such as Spring, Hibernate, and Eclipse BIRT and has been adopted and deployed in several developing countries, such as Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Haiti, South Africa, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and Uganda.

This session will demonstrate a real-world example of an open source project that uses Eclipse projects to enrich and improve the lives of thousands of people in developing countries suffering from HIV/AIDS and TB. The discussion will cover the open source project, OpenMRS -- its history and architecture. We will also discuss how we've successfully integrated with Eclipse BIRT to implement critical reporting components that are being used by clinicians at hospitals in developing countries, consequently helping to save lives. Specifically, we will discuss the integration of the BIRT runtime engine as well as the implementation of our own ODA Plugin.

Audience

This discussion is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser for those looking to implement a real-world application using Eclipse BIRT. It is intended for developers, managers, implementers, or anyone who would like to see BIRT being used in a mission critical setting.

Justin Miranda is a software engineer employed by Partners In Health, a non-profit organization based in Boston, MA that provides health care in developing countries. Justin primarily works on an open-source medical record system called OpenMRS.
