The Uganda Ministry of Health with support from METS Program and OpenMRS will be conducting a one week long training Bootcamp on OpenMRS in Kampala from 20th to 24th November, 2017.

The focus of the training will be on UgandaEMR , an Electronic Medical Record System implemented in over 600 health facilities in Uganda. It collects individual patient data(such as weight, diagnosis) thus making it patient-centric. It also provides useful clinical decision support system features, and generates reports that can be used for reporting to the Ministry of Health at national and county levels. .

Through this training, The Ministry of Health aims to equip the Uganda community/public with the skills required to take advantage of the growing need for health informatics experts in the country.

The intensive training will be held at METS office.  The training will start at 8:30 am to 5:00 pm everyday. During the training, the participants will be taken through both theory and hands on sessions conducted by UgandaEMR facilitators.
