About the Training

The University of the Philippines Manila National Telehealth Center is currently conducting OpenMRS training to individuals who wish to know more about the system and its application in a healthcare facility setting. The training program is divided into 2 levels to accommodate different types of audiences, each having different interests in using OpenMRS for implementation and/or development. The first year strategy is to create awareness of OpenMRS and other open source electronic medical records. Subsequently, once demand has been generated, levels 2 and 3 will be offered.

For queries about this program, please send email to admin AT info DOT telehealth DOT ph.
