Not sure how to categorize your Distribution?  Here 's are some examples:

  • Do you intend for health facilities anywhere in the world to use your system without drastic customization? This is probably a General Purpose Distribution.
  • Targeted at a specific geographic region, e.g. KenyaEMR or Mozambique's eSaude? This is a Targeted Distribution.
  • Targeted at a specific disease, e.g. Ebola or MDR-TB? This is a Targeted Distribution.
  • Is your distro built for one specific customer, and would need extensive modification or forking to be used by someone else, e.g. PIH-EMR? This is an Implementation Specific Distribution.
  • Do you have a collection of OpenMRS modules and configuration, but no automated installer? This is not actually a distribution.
  • Want advice on how to package things as a distribution? Post to the developers Talk category and ask!
