Share experiences to gain a better understanding of our diverse landscapes
Increase the likelihood of adoption by multiple OpenMRS implementations.
Make the most of limited funding by pooling resources.
Distribute the responsibility for building and maintaining shared OpenMRS assets.
Contribute to and access a collection of re-usable solutions.
Reduce siloed development and duplication of effort.
At over 8,000 health facilities in 40+ countries, at least 50 organizations are working hand in hand with country leadership to customize OpenMRS – and increase provider access to health data for more than 16.6 million patients.

Many organizations are critical to achieving OpenMRS’ vision by customizing and deploying OpenMRS locally. A smaller number of organizations, however, are choosing to make significant, upstream code contributions to recognized, shared OpenMRS repos that everyone can use.
Customizing code to support OpenMRS distributions & implementations
Code contributions to both upstream and local OpenMRS implementations
Frequent upstream code contributions to OpenMRS shared repositories
People may think the only way to contribute to the community is by writing code. And behind everyone who contributes code are people who are documenting guidelines and resources, giving others a platform to demo and showcase their work, and making it easier for others to engage with our community and grow professionally. Here are a few of the people who made contributions to our documentation, product management, implementation guidelines and resources, and spread the word about what is happening in our community.
