OpenMRS might help more than the developing world

Recently there has been a huge software scandal here in Denmark related to creating a common electronic journal system for all doctors and hospitals.
The project was mismanaged from the start, using the typically catastrophic waterfall model of software development and then driven right into the ground by an unholy confluence of bureaucratic ineptness and the greed of the contractors.
I can't help but feel sad that we could have gotten a working solution for much less than the millions already wasted, while helping the rest of the world by contributing to OpenMRS.
