TL;DR Worked as a GSoC intern at OpenMRS and would love to thank all the people involved.
This years Google Summer of Code has drawn to an end. I worked on the Patient Narratives Upload project under the mentor-ship of Saptarshi Purkayastha.
And.. I am really glad to announce the Initial release of "Patient Narratives Module" ! :-)
Project in brief: The ultimate goal of this project is to build a OpenMRS based User-driven-Health-care system (with this module installed on top of OpenMRS-core)
By enabling care-seekers to connect with care-givers in which their current treatment can be reviewed by a group of care-givers, who can suggest further action.
I had some serious fun this summer.
Got involved with various technologies. including SpringAOP, DWR, WebRTC, Xuggle and dug up more into OpenMRS framework + with Form entry and Xforms module implementations.
Made a demo video, documented a lot about the project on the wiki and wrote a lot of code !
Did a presentation at OpenMRS Developer forum about the project.
I’d love to thank my mentor Saptarshi Purkayastha, Daniel Kayiwa, Mark Goodrich and OpenMRS community in general for all the amazing guidance that has been giving us throughout the summer.
We had loads of discussions on #openmrs IRC about development, do’s and don’ts in our implementation, pros and cons of implementing a certain thing in a certain way. I was able to complete the core functionality and add support for commonly used features.
Although this formally concludes the Google Summer of Code’13 part, this is in no way the end. There are a lot more things in the project that have to be done. I’ll be helping to maintain the project along with adding functionality to it..
May the blessings of Lord Buddha be with us. නමෝ බුද්ධාය.
