OpenMRS presentation

  1. 1. OpenMRS community has come together to specifically respond to those actively building and managing health systems in the developing world, where AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria afflict the lives of millions of people. Their mission is to improve health care delivery in resource-constrained environments by coordinating a global community to create and support this software.
  2. 2. The OpenMRS community is a worldwide network of volunteers from many different backgrounds including technology, health care, and international development. Together, They're working to build the world's largest and most flexible technology platform to support delivery of health care in some of the most challenging environments on the planet.
  3. 3. Although they started out to fix a database system in a single clinic in Kenya, in the last few years OpenMRS has grown dramatically to be used both in research and clinical settings in every corner of the planet. They're very proud of the innovators using OpenMRS to improve health care worldwide.
  4. 4. Design decisions are driven by real, not perceived needs. Their software works in the most challenging health care delivery environments. They create a platform that is adaptable to the unique needs of their users around the world.
  5. 5. They are open, honest, and transparent in both their processes and their software. Their software serves as a platform that empowers both users and implementers to innovate. They publicly document and share their knowledge, skills, experiences, and failures.
  6. 6. 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.
  7. 7. Models exist to implement health IT in a way that decreases costs, increases capacity, and lessens the disparities between wealthy and resource-poor environments. Open standards enable people to use health IT systems to share information and reduce effort. Concepts and processes can be easily shared to enable health care professionals and patients to work together more effectively. Medical software helps ease the work of health care providers and administrators to provide them with the tools to improve health outcomes all over the world.
