ADVANCE SIGN-UP REQUIRED FOR PARTICIPANTS: http://omrs15-lt.eventbrite.com/
Do you have an awesome idea? A secret project you've been working on? Are you really excited about a new technology that you want to share with other OpenMRS people? If so, sign up for a lightning talk to share your ideas with us!
Lightning talks are intended to be fun and informative presentations that will get the audience excited about your topic, and promote further discussion among OMRS15 attendees. Remember, keep your presentation concise, efficient, clear ... and most of all, interesting! You have a strict time limit of five minutes!
Signup is on a first come, first serve basis. So don't delay, sign up today! And remember, you have only (a very strictly enforced) five minutes to deliver your message, so be prepared!

Implementers: Engage & Influence In The Community (What Do We Need - How Do We Get It?)
by Fabian Tamp
by Vivek Singh
Bahmni started from a rural hospital in India three years back and is now being deployed in many countries. In this talk I share our motivation, approach and strategy of making and scaling Bahmni via implementations. I will also cover key technologies, features and roadmap of Bahmni.
Vivek Singh, Product Manager, Bahmni (ThoughtWorks)
Attendees may choose from a wide variety of dining options in the SMU Food & Beverage outlets in the underground concourse, or from nearby establishments.
I would like to propose this session, to hear experiences and stories from others. This would be focussed around how people went about planning for large scale rollouts. Interested in knowing various factors that were considered, what challenges were expected & which cropped up during rollout. What was the approach towards training, go-live support and providing post go-live support.

Bahmni is an easy-to-use, open source OpenMRS distro, which is a full Hospital Management solution including EMR, Lab, PACS, and an ERP system for billing and inventory. More details here: http://www.bahmni.org.
We would like to help people try out Bahmni by helping them install Bahmni on their laptops, and also do some what-if situations to help configure Registration screens, Clinical Screens, Diagnostic screens, etc. This way, people will have a running system to play with, and we will also be able to get some feedback from Implementers on Bahmni and their needs.
Gurpreet Luthra (from ThoughtWorks). Session will be conducted by Vinay Venu and Hemanth, who are from the Bahmni development team.
In a recent Talk thread I argued that we should be actively encouraging active downstream consumers of openmrs-core to fork it, and that this could lead to more contributions back:
That's a heavy conversation to have on Talk, so some of us would like to pick it up again at the Summit.
Discussion of the current status of the involvement of women in technology and OpenMRS, and a brainstorming of ways which we could engage and encourage more involvement of women in OpenMRS community (GSoC, outreach, volunteer opportunities, discussion boards, etc)
I was involved in deploying Bahmni (an OpenMRS distro) in a hospital called SEARCH, in Gadchiroli, in rural Maharahtra (India).
I would like to share my experiences of doing a deployment of an EMR solution, during the 3 week stay in SEARCH hospital. I will talk about the challenges faced by technologists in doing deployments in resource constrained environments, and the lessons that we can take with us for further implementations.

Project Buendia is an OpenMRS deployment for humanitarian relief scenarios.
The project was originally developed as a collaboration between MSF, Google, and volunteers from the tech community to be deployed in ebola management centres in early 2015, and is now being generalized to work for a broader range of relief missions, including nutrition programs.
This talk will outline the high-level architecture of the project, as well as the main challenges that the project faces, and the unique solutions we've developed to manage these, including:
- Operating OpenMRS in a resource-constrained environment (intermittent power, probably no internet)
- The unique organisational environment that the project operates in, and how that influences our design
- A need for equipment to be provisioned quickly, and for implementations to be highly customizable

Fabian Tamp, lead engineer on the Project Buendia team.
Bahmni team will be sharing its current thoughts around Bahmni's governance model and approach to product roadmap. We will be addressing any questions and are open for suggestions and ideas to make this process more inclusive of OpenMRS community.
