From the OpenMRS website - openmrs.org: "Open Medical Record System (OpenMRS®) was created in 2004 as a open source medical record system platform for developing countries – a tide which rises all ships. OpenMRS is a multi-institution, non-profit collaborative led by Regenstrief Institute, a world-renowned leader in medical informatics research, and Partners In Health, a Boston-based philanthropic organization with a focus on improving the lives of underprivileged people worldwide through health care service and advocacy. These teams nurture a growing worldwide network of individuals and organizations all focused on creating medical record systems and a corresponding implementation network to allow system development self reliance within resource constrained environments."
Looking to get started at a developer? Read the blog post about a new book for OpenMRS developers. The book, "OpenMRS Developers' Guide", can be found at http://en.flossmanuals.net/openmrs-developers-guide/.
