Kenya EMR is a distribution, i.e. a set of required modules. For convenience, the Kenya EMR module is able to build this distribution by pulling together all of the required modules.

See Kenya EMR Installation Guide for more information.


Sites that are part of the official rollout will receive KenyaEMR as part of a complete appliance release. This is the recommended way to deploy KenyaEMR in a production environment as the appliance provides other important functionality such as automated backups. However, KenyaEMR can also easily be installed as a distribution release (a set of modules) or built from the source code.

See KenyaEMR Installation Guide for more information.


The modules that make up this distribution are a mixture of distribution-specific modules, modules which are potentially re-usable by other distributions, and other general-purpose community modules.

See KenyaEMR Distribution Modules for more information


We expect other organisations implementing Kenya EMR KenyaEMR will want to customise it by adding additional content specific to their sites. Kenya EMR KenyaEMR has been designed with this in mind and has an API which allows add-on modules to add new content such as forms and reports. We strongly encourage developers who plan to do this to join the official mailing list so that they are notified of changes to Kenya EMR KenyaEMR and it's API.

See Kenya EMR Add-on Module API KenyaEMR Developer Guide for more information.

UI Library


User interface

KenyaEMR uses the new OpenMRS UI Framework module to create an entirely new point-of-care oriented user interface. Many of the fragments, decorators, stylesheets, icons and scripts are maintained in a separate module called Kenya UI which allows them to be more easily reused in different projects, especially add-on modules.

See Kenya UI KenyaUI Module for more information.
