Project Buendia: In-Depth

A session at OpenMRS Worldwide Summit 2015

Friday 11th December, 2015

3:40pm to 4:40pm (SMT)

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
