Help Save Lives with Your Donation
OpenMRS is an electronic medical records software platform that is a critical part of the infrastructure needed to maintain and improve healthcare in some of the poorest communities in the world. A global community of OpenMRS volunteers has made these vital contributions possible. OpenMRS is there for the people of these communities only because of the ongoing support of partners like you. Hundreds of people volunteer their time to provide advice, programming, and implementation services. Ensuring the most effective and efficient use of these vital resources requires clear communication and central coordination—which can only happen with financial support. To sustain, strengthen, and amplify our life-saving impact in communities that desperately need it, we are asking for your financial support. Help us build the operational team that can most effectively respond to the increasing number of requests for a robust, resilient electronic medical record system around the world.

The Growing Influence of OpenMRS
The 2016 OpenMRS Implementers’ Conference held in Uganda was the community’s 11th and the largest to date, including over 400 participants from over 27 countries!

How Your Gift Helps OpenMRS Improve Vulnerable Lives Around the World
Over 40 million people in developing countries are infected with diseases such as HIV/AIDS, multi-drug–resistant tuberculosis, and malaria. Outbreaks of Ebola and other viruses could threaten tens of millions more. Effective maternal and neonatal care remain critical to improving life expectancy, and non-communicable diseases continue to increase in frequency. The immense threats to achieving global health equity require resilient healthcare systems, including health IT that serves patients; healthcare providers; and healthcare administrators. Sustainable healthcare infrastructure remains essential to meet the continuing and evolving healthcare needs of these vulnerable populations – both individual patients and their at-risk communities. The Open Medical Record System. OpenMRS. provides a practical, effective, and reliable means of improving healthcare in resource-limited places. So far, OpenMRS has already helped over 5 million people in 80 countries. Since 2004, the OpenMRS community has pioneered the world’s most effective health information infrastructure: a free, open-source medical record system as a platform for developing countries. A worldwide network of volunteers in technology, healthcare, and international development has worked to build and implement the world’s largest and most flexible technology platform to support healthcare delivery in the most challenging environments.
