Welcome to the OpenMRS Wiki Page!

The home of the most important OpenMRS resources.

We are glad to see you here! As you embark on the journey towards exploring OpenMRS' capabilities and impact, we have put together some of our favorite macros on this homepage to get you started. As you start creating pages, blogging and commenting you'll see the macros below fill up with all the activity in your space.

Getting Started
There are many ways to help our community achieve our mission. And you don't have to be a developer in order to make a difference!
If you're interested in knowing more about how our community works and is organized, watch this short video about our community and check out our Community Wiki Page. Our Community Engagement Dashboard is a good place to go if you want to know about our community engagement vision and priorities.
If you want to know what technical projects we're working on collaboratively, check out our Product Dashboard.
If you're interested in understanding how the work the community is doing supports country implementations, check out our Strategic Framework for Investment and Collaboration.
If you're interested in starting as a DEVELOPER, take a look through our Getting Started as a Developer. It includes a Getting Started Guide that will give you all the information you need to get started as an OpenMRS developer in an easy to read and concise format.  Once you've read through the book, click /wiki/spaces/docs/pages/25475369 to find a quick summary of things you can do to get started!

OpenMRS Installation & Demo Data

If you're ready to install OpenMRS, installation instructions can be found here.

If you'd like to use demo data, a sample anonymized data set, including 5,000 patients and 500,000 observations, is available for testing the OpenMRS reference application. This is useful for potential implementers to see how OpenMRS might work within their health clinics. Download our demo data here.

Developer Stages

The purpose of developer stages is to help clarify where people are in their journey, motivate people to become increasingly skilled in OpenMRS development, and help us recognize when people are becoming more skilled with OpenMRS Development.

Google Summer of Code

OpenMRS has enjoyed participating in Google Summer of Code since 2007. We're extremely excited about the projects and mentorship opportunities that we hope to make available this year. Coding for OpenMRS is a great way to practice your coding skills and, at the same time, help benefit people in developing countries who are on the front lines of the battle against HIV/AIDS, TB, Malaria, and other public health challenges.
