Community Bonding

Hello everyone, before I write about what I have accomplished during the community bonding period, I’d like to explain a bit about OpenMRS .

About OpenMRS

OpenMRS is an open source organization which focuses on building an EMR, the idea of establishing  OpenMRS is started at Eldoret,Kenya when Burke Mamlin and Paul Biondich visited Ampath project  in February 2004. The current version of OpenMRS exists for HIV/AIDS, Drug resistant TB, primary care and oncology.

About OpenMRS Atlas

OpenMRS Atlas is a website where we show the information of implementations of OpenMRS across the globe in the form of a marker for each implementation where the administrators will send the information on a weekly basis to the server.
