James Dixon’s thoughts on commercial open source and open source business intelligence

Pentaho / OpenMRS student project at Intel International Science and Engineering Fair

with one comment

Over the past few months I have been mentoring two students, Zueber Juma and Tej Amin, from Lake Highland Preparatory School. They have been working on a science fair project related to OpenMRS and the PEPFAR aids relief program using Pentaho’s technology. They set out to prove that medical record data from OpenMRS can be transformed using open source software into data structures that can be used to create PEPFAR reports. This system would allow AIDS treatment centers to create their own reports, instead of sending their data to the USA for report preparation.

They placed second at the country and state level and are now in Reno for the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.

Good luck guys.
