To implement an OpenMRS system, you typically start from an existing OpenMRS Distribution, and configure that distribution for your implementation use case. Depending on which distribution you choose, and what your use case is, this may range from configuring metadata through a user interface, to writing custom add-on modules, or your own custom user interface backed by OpenMRS REST web services. Implementations with a strong development shops may choose to build their own custom application(s) on top of the Platform.

Here Below is a list of known OpenMRS Distributions that are intended for use by the general public :– most people who want to implement OpenMRS should choose one of these distributions. (You can also read about special-purpose distributions that aren't intended to be installed by a general audience.)
