*SOFTWARE PROGRAMMERS/ ENGINEERS

NEW DELHI, INDIA

 

A leading healthcare NGO in India, JSS (http://jssbilaspur.org/about/), is building out an 

electronic medical record system based upon an open-source platform and is looking 

for a few energetic, talented software programmers/ engineers. The aim is to create a 

cloud and mobile-based EMR system for JSS, the backbone of which will be the open-

source package OpenMRS.  Due to the nature of JSS's work - the fast pace doctors see 

patients, the scale of the patient population, the diversity of pathologies - the project is 

unprecedented, both in India and abroad. Even in the top-ranked hospital systems in the 

United States very few doctors key in their own patient records, instead still relying on 

pen and paper. This is because most doctors find the user interface of most EMRs slow, 

cumbersome, and distracting from the doctor-patient interaction.  Our aim is to design, 

build and implement a UI atop OpenMRS that solves this fundamental problem, 

incorporating voice recognition, handwriting recognition or some other technology to 

quickly and accurately commit the doctor's note to the electronic patient record in 

second.  This technology exists. Making it part of a lightweight EMR that functions on 

an open-source platform, operating on tablet PC or ipads, and incorporating other 

departments within the hospital, such as radiology, pathology and the maternity ward is 

the challenge. The stakes are huge. Right now there are virtually no patient records kept 

from visit to visit at JSS, and the demand placed on these doctors is so enormous that 

each patient visit lasts under five minutes.  Experience with OpenMRS, along with web 

experience with Java EE, database experience with MySQL/PgSQL, UI experience with 

Drupal/Android/iOS/HTML5 and coding experience with Drupal/PHP will be real plus 

points. Looking for people who can start as soon as possible, though a specific time 

commitment is not necessary. Must have strong excellent communication skills. JSS 

operates on a low budget in a resource-constrained environment; however, some 

compensation is available and will be determined upon skill and experience. 

Development will be done in New Delhi, India.  TO APPLY: Please send a cover letter 

and resume/ CV to daniel.pepper at gmail dot com.
