Where did the name “Raxa” come from?
From an email correspondence with Shuro: "Raxa" is a neologism that my wife came up with. As you can see from the logo, it has the universal sign for healthcare prescription ("Rx") in it, and is phonetically close to the Hindic word "Raksha" which means to protect.
What are the reasons for building the Raxa JSS EMR rather than directly using an existing open-source system?
Is anyone following up on how to use I2B2 for analytics? The I2B2 project itself seems to be inactive for quite a few months now.
We are not investigating this at present.
Is there a demo site where I can try out the various features developed so far?
Not yet. but this is forthcoming. Our code is on Git and designs are on public DropBox links that we regularly broadcast via Twitter and through our public, Weekly Meeting. .
Where can I download the web/db components (and relevant installation documentation) to set it up locally?
I'm having trouble sorting out which spaces I should be watching to track the changes in this project. I have seen too many - OpenMRS, Atlassian, Google groups, github and DropBox - and am slightly dazed.
We currently use
(1) Atlassian - Issue tracking (JIRA), Wiki (Confluence)
(2) Google groups - all correspondence is across our google groups. The "contributors" group is for everyone involved (but there are also specific groups by module, for UI-UX, etc).
(3) Git - Front-end code
(4) DropBox - UI/UX
