At the heart of every OpenMRS implementation is a concept dictionary that defines the medical concepts (questions and answers) used as the building blocks for forms, orders, clinical summaries, reports (almost every aspect of the data). Most OpenMRS most implementations have an open concept dictionary - one that is considered incomplete and evolves over time. Therefore, as clinicians document conditions the concept dictionary inside OpenMRS must be expanded to accommodate them in order to have support meaningful clinical documentation.
