What We Do

OpenMRS: The foundational, electronic medical record technology for countries that touch and help millions of patients throughout the world.

We coordinate a global community that creates a robust, scalable, user-driven and open-source medical record platform.

We maintain a platform that countries and implementers use to create a customized EMR system in response to actual needs on the ground.

Our Vision

Go far, go together

Models exist to implement health IT in a way that decreases costs, increases capacity, and lessens the disparities between wealthy and resource-constrained environments.

Open Standards

Open standards enable people to use health IT systems to share information and reduce effort.

Information is Care

Concepts and processes can be easily shared to enable healthcare professionals and patients to work together more effectively.

Our Values

User - Centered

Design decisions are driven by real, not perceived needs. Our software works in the most challenging health care delivery environments. We create a platform that is adaptable to the unique needs of our users around the world.


We are open, honest, and transparent in both our processes and our software. Our software serves as a platform that empowers both users and implementers to innovate. We publicly document and share our knowledge, skills, experiences, and failures

Community - Driven

We believe the best ideas come from people with different backgrounds and talents, and we build a community where these people can come together and innovate. We believe in harnessing the wisdom of our software development community by creating a safe place to raise concerns, discuss failures, improve existing ideas, and solve problems.
