Summer of Coders at Google: OpenMRS

Dr. Paul Biondich and Dr. Burke Mamlin, mentors for the OpenMRS project, stopped by Google yesterday and treated our employees to an introduction to OpenMRS. You can check out the video of their presentation to learn more about their system design, as well as the intricacies of implementing open systems for the medical field. It's particularly exciting to see how these folks have enhanced their code base using work done by so many other open source projects, code which in turn is now helping those most in need of care receive it.

It's not every day you get to hang out with two doctors who are open source geeks at heart.

Many thanks to Burke and Paul for joining us!
