Update: OpenLMIS Community Meeting Rescheduled


(Mary Jo Kochendorfer) #1

Dear OpenLMIS Community,

We are rescheduling the OpenLMIS community meeting in hopes to coordinate timing with upcoming industry conferences. We made the decision due to resource constraints (both staffing and funding) to give us a bit more time and align with conferences. For those of you on the Gap development team, we are stilling to have team representatives meet in-person in the month of September to discuss current the current work and focus in on reporting metrics.

Instead of the one OpenLMIS community meeting, we are discussing the following ideas for two in-person gatherings/meetings in 2018:

  • Add a day on to the Global Health Supply Chain Summit (GHSCS) conference Lusaka, Zambia, November 28-30 . We can leverage the conference to invite prospective implementers to showcase OpenLMIS version 3 and introduce the Trusted Partner support services for deployment/implementation. We can also do some activities around prioritizing key features and hearing directly from prospective users about what they care most about. Trusted Partners, would this type of event to showcase OpenLMIS and your service offerings be of interest? Are you planning to attend the conference?

  • Add a day on to the
    Global Digital Health Forum (GDHF)
    conference in Washington DC, USA December 10th & 11th . We could have the global community stakeholders come together to do a roadmap prioritization and discuss the long-term strategy of the community. OpenLMIS submitted multiple abstracts for the forum so hopefully we can capitalize on people traveling to the conference for this type of OpenLMIS community meeting. Please let me know if you are planning to attend the conference.

Thank you for your understanding in the reschedule and please let us know if you have any additional thoughts or comments.

Much appreciated,

Mary Jo

(Wes Brown) #2

Hello All,

Would there be any interest in including a couple day hackathon after one of these gatherings? I have found that giving a bunch of developers the opportunity to work together and hang out in the same physical space is a great way to foster community and get some interesting work done in a short amount of time. Are there any thoughts on whether we should pursue this and, if so, which gathering we should target?

Thanks,

+1 for Wes’s idea of including a hackathon/developer days after both of those gatherings. At the OpenHIE event just held in Arusha, it was hugely valuable to bring developers from many countries together working on similar issues and tools. We need to invest in developer capacity building and skills sharing across our 9 implementations.

Regarding the 2 conferences, I also wanted to mention a third event (info below), a Tanzania Health Supply Chain Summit in October 2018. At that event, Alfred Mchau suggests we could propose a GS1 session with the government team (those from TZ that attended the GS1 conference in Addis) presenting the high level value statement/business case. Also, it would be great if we could do a demo of OpenLMIS or support local teams to hold a demo showcasing the GS1 track-and-trace for people to see.

This is my first mail to the product committee discussion group. As newcomer in the OpenLMIS community, we would like to take part in these conferences, where we can have more interaction with the team members on OpenLMIS future and plan forward. Specially to mention about Global Digital Health Forum (GDHF) . Can anyone share more on the event, like the meeting schedules, papers submitted, as I do not see those available in the site.

    Would there be sponsorship available if we do plan to meet?

+1 for Wes’ idea, too.

Mary Jo – I think both conferences are a great idea for the community meeting. While I am not planning to attend either at the moment (although, I do hope to attend at least one), I think a demo / prioritization / user feedback workshop would be very fascinating to hold at the conference in Lusaka.
