Release 2019-10

Just in time for Christmas, the openIMIS Developer Committee announces the release of the October version of OpenIMIS. Although we clearly missed the deadline, it was worth waiting: the new release contains most of the programming work that was invested into modularising the architecture of openIMIS and opening up the system for interoperability with other eHealth systems. That’s a major breakthrough for the project and we are all happy that we have seen the results operate successfully during a number of hack-a-thons and conferences in the last two months.

Particularly the package includes:

  • The new core of openIMIS that is based on pure open source technologies such as Python/ Django and Javascript/React

  • A rewrite of the claims module with shiny new user interfaces based on Material-ui for beautiful interface design

  • A set of HL7 FHIR APIs (interfaces) that allow other systems (e.g. OpenMRS, BAHMNI, Odoo, DHIS2) to connect to openIMIS for data synchronisation

  • Bug-fixes and performance improvements in the legacy system
