OpenMRS is a wonderful clinical data gathering and analyzation tool as well as a wonderful platform for an integrated hospital management information system (HMIS).  However, the business management pieces to implement a comprehensive HMIS within OpenMRS are not complete and those pieces that do exist lack an overall cohesiveness.  The OpenHMIS team is filling that gap and adding a comprehensive HMIS suite that is built on top of OpenMRS.

Our goal is to provide an excellent HMIS software solution for hospitals that cannot afford expensive commercial software packages.  While we will be working with specific hospitals for our implementations we are designing each module to be general enough to be used in many varied medical institutions. This generalized design is something that we believe is vitally important as it enables the OpenMRS community at large to benefit from this work and so that they (you!) can actively contribute back into the work to help make it better for everyone.

    I-TECH Kenya and IntelliSOFT Consulting Kenya are working on customizing OpenMRS for Kenya and I-TECH has a huge target of implementing OpenMRS at 300 GoK health facilities. We should link up at some point since we are working towards the same thing here.
