Dear friends,

First thanks a lot for all your private emails supporting me on this new
challenge and for the people that believes that initiatives like this one
are of a great value to our community, since clinical data storage is an
open problem in the openEHR world.

Some updates!

The website is up and running:

If you detect any errors please let me know.

It has some basic information and guides. I'll be adding more guides and
tech docs soon.

In the community section you can find client libraries I created for PHP,
Javascript and Groovy. Basically are helpers and sample code to help you on
using the EHRServer REST API. If you want to create a client for another
language, please let me know!

Also there is a project called openEHR-OPT: a command line tool that allows
to 1. generate HTML GUI from an OPT, 2. generate XML instances from an OPT
(VERSION or just COMPOSITION), 3. validate XML instances using the openEHR

All the aforementioned tools are open source, as the EHRServer itself,
designed & developed by me in the last couple of years.

For know the full documentation is the EHRServer guide that can be found

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Happy new year for everyone!

Kind regards,

PS: yes, I use these lists because there is no other way to reach the
community and the announcing list is used by the openEHR Foundation Board,
not by community members. I though a lot about this, and I firmly believe
this is of value to the openEHR community as a whole and that is the most
important aspect than if I charge money to use the service. As I mentioned,
this is an open source development and the fee is to maintain
infrastructure and allow further development of the tool. Without this
support the project will just die, since it is just me designing and
developing, staying up late at night, using my weekends to work on the
project, etc. and it has been that way since 2009 when I started with my
first PoC for an openEHR backend. Please consider this and I ask for a
little understanding. Thanks.

> Dear friends,
> I'm about to launch the Cloud EHRServer, a clinical data repository /
> health information system backend as a service. I'm very excited about
> this, since I invested a lot on the EHRServer development and now it seems
> natural to take this next step to make further development sustainable in
> time.
> This SaaS is based on the EHRServer, the first open source openEHR
> clinical data repository, I've been developing for the last years. The
> development and maintenance of the EHRServer will continue in parallel to
> the Cloud EHRServer.
> There are two big use cases for this kind of service. One is to serve as a
> backend of clinical information systems that need to access the same data
> e.g. web and mobile apps. The other use case is to centralize shared
> clinical information, generated by different systems, accessible in a
> standardized way.
> For the first phase of the Cloud EHRServer we will only accept sign-ups
> for the Beta Partners Program, a reduced group of people / companies that
> want to use the service, participate on its improvement, and grow with us.
> The cost of participation in the Beta Partners Program will be 25USD/mo
> with options for 6 or 12 months. This is be like a medium sized plan but
> without any restrictions, do you don't have to worry about quotas during
> prototyping and testing. This will help us to maintain the infrastructure
> and scale on the first year, while developing some features of the current
> roadmap to v1.0
> The Beta Partners will receive training, premium support, early access to
> guides and new releases of the EHRServer, access to online events, will be
> able to propose new features and vote to prioritize them, to help the
> service move towards the needs of the community.
> The current status of the EHRServer is that we are about to launch v0.9
> that will be production-ready, and we already have a production server in
> place with HTTPS working. The EHRServer was in the cloud for more than 12
> months on a staging server, and we have about 300 registered users, between
> testers and students of my courses (
> We will have 2 staging servers alongside the production one.
> Next week I will launch the official Website with more information, the
> sign-up form for the Beta Partners Program and some initial guides. On the
> first days of January the production server will be enabled for use. For
> now if you want to know more please fill the contact form:
> Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thanks a lot for your
> support!
