This is a work in progress.

OpenMRS encourages organizations and consultants to grow their business by becoming service providers of technical, implementation, and maintenance support of OpenMRS products. Implementers around the world consistently come to OpenMRS in search of expert help with their implementations. We've created an OpenMRS Service Provider program to begin offering a list of resources that are available for these implementers to contact directly in order to find an appropriate fit to meet their needs.
What Is a Service Provider?
An OpenMRS Service Provider is an organization that has the commitment and capacity to perform software development, advising, training, and/or implementation work using and promoting products in the OpenMRS ecosystem.
What is not a Service Provider?
- Individuals operating as direct contractors or consultants are not eligible for listing in the Service Provider program. Why is this? Because our goal with the SP program is to promote the growth of businesses in the ecosystem)
- General IT or software development or HIS businesses not actively using or promoting OpenMRS development or implementation are not eligible for listing. You must actively be engaging in OpenMRS specific projects in some manner.
