Belly of the beast
This week involves installing OpenMRS and PACS systems at Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais. The Picture Archiving & Communication System (PACS) from McKesson will store radiology images from X-ray, CT, and ultrasound machines. OpenMRS functionality will include patient information (ie. demographics and radiology orders) and communicate with the PACS system via HL7 and Mirth. Nick, Casey and I are having a productive week. Nick has a very similar style of mustache to another member of our team.
