Today he is the Ecosystem Lead for Bahmni, an open-source Hospital Management System. In this role he coordinates interactions between software development teams, community contributors, implementation partners, and other open-source communities.

He has advised other open-source projects like OpenLMIS, OpenSRP, and OCL on structuring their communities to encourage contributions and generate maximum impact, and he architected the tablet-based electronic medical record we build for use in Ebola treatment centers.

The Interview

I came to find ThoughtWorks by

seeing the scope of work they were doing across the global health space.

My geeky passion is

building top-quality health information systems for resource-limited settings; I've been doing it for 15+ years.
