The OpenMRS Wiki is a community-maintained collection of documentation about our software and about our community.

If you previously accessed the wiki/JIRA – you still have access. Otherwise, new OpenMRS IDs recently created after 13 June 2016, please contact the Help Desk to request access to the wiki for edit/write access. You can browse anonymously. Please explain why you need access. We are now manually granting edit/write access to the wiki to prevent spam.

OpenMRS volunteers work hard to share knowledge and maintain this information, and we encourage you to help by fixing errors, updating knowledge, and adding comments or questions to pages.

If you're new to OpenMRS, read Introduction to OpenMRS for background about what we're doing, and visit to get involved.
