Welcome to the Community.

Our community’s welcoming environment is a result of our collective efforts to engage with each other, recognize contributions, celebrate and share our accomplishments, mentor each other, and advocate for our partners. 

Healthcare systems around the world rely on secure data from OpenMRS to provide quality patient care and fight disease. And there is more to OpenMRS than coding: providing a quality core product involves project management, quality assurance, business analysis, and documentation. 

More urgently than ever, we need your help to maintain our community’s technical products. 

How will you contribute to OpenMRS and help us achieve our vision?
