OpenMRS is an open source medical record system platform used by a large number of developing countries. It is a multi-institution, non-profit collaborative led by a team of volunteers around the world. The project was co-founded by Regenstrief Institute, a world-renowned leader in medical informatics research, and Partners In Health, a Boston-based philanthropic organization with a focus on improving the lives of underprivileged people worldwide through health care service and advocacy. Today, OpenMRS is used throughout the world and is the world's leader in open source Health IT. Want to find out more about where OpenMRS is being used? Check out the OpenMRS Atlas, a real-time map of user-reported OpenMRS installations and developers.
OpenMRS has a long history of mentorship, and we have assembled our best community members as capable mentors who are willing to help review your completed tasks.

As a GCI participant, there's a number of technical and non-technical tasks that you can work on for us. A full list of these issues can be found below, and will be posted in the Melange site when tasks open. Please note that each issue contains multiple labels denoting their level of difficulty (Level 01 to 05), type (Code to Documentation, Outreach, testing etc.) and repeatability (ticket can be completed once per student, or multiple times per student).
This task list is growing quickly and will be changed up until the start of the contest on 1 December 2014. Keep checking back for updates!
