Active Team-Based Projects in the OpenMRS Community
There are many ways for you to contribute to OpenMRS and help us achieve our vision of improving patient care. Each active OpenMRS-related project that is being worked upon has its own project page. Some projects are in the initial stages while others have been completed to a major extent.
The OpenMRS community has opportunities for individuals to contribute to projects independently - or as part of a "squad" working on a specific project. Whatever your interest or skills, you can join any squad - or simply help out where you see a need. Browse through each project's page to get more information about each project. If you want to know more about a project or if you want to contribute towards any aspect of it, you can write to the project's contact or search for current discussions or start a new topic on our community forum, which we call Talk.
