Order entry is an important part of an electronic medical record system. To date, OpenMRS has provided minimal support for orders within the database, since our initial focus was on around data (observation) gathering and reporting. As OpenMRS implementations have grown, more and more have found the need for support of orders within the system. Our goal is to create enterprise-quality support for order-entry within OpenMRS. We begin with the underlying API (programmers interface) and with a focus on building a foundation upon which modules can build/innovate/discover various ordering paradigms.
