OpenEMR offers a few examples for migration that can provide a start for those looking to migrate data to OpenEMR which I was able to use to start the process. Since the example code was for a system different than our custom Django application I had to re-write it to migrate our participant data. This was an iterative process as we added our custom OpenEMR forms and continued into the early stages of OpenEMR deployment. Creating a custom migration script requires intimate knowledge of the schemas and API's of both systems.
St. James Infirmary makes use of a custom python web application based on the Django admin interface. Using a custom web application for tracking participant care as opposed to using the cities electronic medical records system allows the organization to further protect it's participants from law enforcement surveillance. The application replicates paper forms that make up a participant chart. My contribution to the application involved upgrading the system to a modern python and Django version, migration from sqlite to MySQL, managing releases and development environments, fixing bugs, and adding features. The organization is planning on migrating the system to OpenEMR.
Radical Designs needed a tool to update their rotating on-call list each month. The were already making use of WordPress for their internal documentation. To tie the two together A script was written to log into the WordPress site, parse a contact list, and then rotate and update the on-call list from the WordPress blog page managed by staff to the Nagios contact config. The on-call rotation was triggered throughout the day (in case a schedule was swapped by updating the WordPress page) via Cron.
When running a postfix/mysql mail server configuration there is a need to manage the email accounts in the database. phpMyAdmin could be used for this, but this may still be too complicated for some users. emailDBAdministration was written to provide a simple web interface to configure forwards, and new email accounts on a postfix/mysql mail server.
In all seriousness, no one should really use this. There are really good tools out there for managing a budget, but I like to write my own tools.
