OpenMRS Quality Assurance Support Team


The Quality Assurance Support team is a group of people who have come together with the common vision of improving the quality of OpenMRS products that are used within the community and in the vast implementations across the world. The team is achieving it's mission by improving the QA framework through providing guidelines, best practices and automation to establish a proactive and systematic QA process within the community aimed at preventing bugs and releasing products to better end-user experience.  

Current Status VERY ACTIVE  

How does this project fit in with the strategy?

The work Quality Assurance support team does, plays a large part to ensure that OpenMRS products can be trusted and reliable so as to encourage sustainability. As result the team does not work in isolation but engages with other squads, teams and implementors in the community to ensure they have quality assurance in place.  All the activities the QA support team undertakes aims at fulfilling the following goals:

  1. Community-led.
  2. Sustainable and robust testing processes and framework.
  3. Foster a culture of quality assurance in developer and implementer practices.
  4. To produce high-quality OpenMRS products.


Our journey began in 2019 and from the diagram below, one can see how the team has advanced over time.

We welcome any community member interested in joining the mission and leading various tasks to improve the QA program for OpenMRS.
