To demonstrate how Uganda is using a multi-partner and multi-funded approach to develop, implement, and support a national implementation of OpenMRS.
To expand the OpenMRS community practices to support quality assurance processes (i.e. release testing, stakeholder acceptance testing, module gardening team, etc.)
To identify the ways to measure a “successful high quality implementation” of OpenMRS and why it is important to go beyond just software development features and bug fixes.
To understand ways in which OpenMRS outputs can be used to positively impact the quality of clinical care and the quality of programs that support care.
This event provides an opportunity for developers to collaborate and improve their technical skills in OpenMRS, implementers to share their best practices from implementations, and users to propose and prioritize their top features in future releases of the software. The event will also include visits to OpenMRS implementation sites along with a discussion afterward for participants to share their experience and suggestions
The conference will be structured in a semi-unconference format - each conference date will comprise with a number of pre-determined sessions/events, followed by open slots for the audience to propose sessions of their choice.

The traditional OpenMRS hackathon will be held 2 days after the event -- Saturday 10 December and Sunday 11 December. The hackathon is free for developers to attend, but separate registration is required because space is limited. More information about the hackathon will be posted here soon.
We are currently finalizing a list of implementation sites that attendees will be able to visit. More details will be updated shortly.
