Important News about Maine InfoPro Manager!

On November 2, 2012, Maine QIP announced that it had released its online, multi-user program management platform, Maine InfoPro Manager, as an open source development platform under Mozilla Public License v 2.0 (MPL 2.0).  See the MPL 2.0 license.

The availability of Maine InfoPro Manager as an open source SQL and .Net platform with the database design and SQL, .Net, and other source code files released under MPL 2.0 gives organizations who need reliable secure, multi-user, web-based program management applications just what they need – a free database design and source code MPL 2.0 base for a feature rich and reliable application platform as a starting point for creating their own a custom online program management applications to meet specific requirements for their programs and research.

The Maine InfoPro Manager development platform has been designed to manage both appointment, group scheduling and educational events, and to manage record keeping and analysis of program results, formal study results, etc. The platform is “data-driven” which means that users can change the database information to customize the application so that terms for types of events, appointments, meetings, etc. and for the types and instances of measures which will be used to monitor progress can all be defined by simply changing the information in the database.

As my MaineQIP partner, Polly Gosselin once said, “If you’re using the data, you’re improving the data.” And as a foundation for that quote from Polly, Dr. W. Edwards Deming, the Quality Improvement Innovator who transformed Toyota, said “It is not enough to do your best; you must know what to do, and THEN do your best.” Deming promoted the idea of learning how to measure results as a foundation for incremental improvement of the processes which create those results. – Bill Eberle, Maine QIP
