OpenMRS is both a software and a community. As a software, it serves as an electronic medical record system (EMR) originally designed for developing countries. Through its open source community it has grown into a medical informatics platform used on every continent. This page will provide an introduction to the OpenMRS software: our electronic medical record and the platform supporting it.
