Bika Health pilot in Suriname

A project to pilot Bika Health 0.2 interfaced to OpenERP and EMR Medical on a project at the University Hospital in Paramaribo, Suriname has been started
From a post by Chris Larsen at the Bika OS Health LIMS discussion group
Due to a series of fortunate circumstances, we have been able to close ranks with the Bika group, as well as the OpenERP/Medical developers in order to launch both applications in the course of a pilot project with the Academisch Ziekenhuis (University Hospital) in Paramaribo, Suriname
As the above programs are Python-based, we even hope to make them talk to each other, which would provide an important step towards a reasonably holistic framework for health facilities
This holds even more true, as the OpenERP backbone of Medical offers great potential to facilitate everyday health facility management
A test platform is nearing completion. Interfacing the laboratory instruments will be the only major customisation to Bika Health required for the pilot. Functional and design discussion continues at the Health group
The interface to OpenMRS completed earlier will be complemented with interfaces to Medical and OpenERP, open source medical and enterprise record keeping and management systems respectively
The Bika developer team thanks all the participants, Health group members, Medical, the Academisch Ziekenhuis and Chris for glueing the project together, it is difficult to contain our excitement
