OpenMRS 3.x | OHRI Technical Overview

About this Session

OpenMRS is an open-source electronic medical record system platform that can improve quality of care and reduce health workers’ time spent managing data. Built to be interoperable with other digital solutions, the OpenMRS platform provides the technology to design and build customized EMR systems that meet the needs of health facility providers, from clinics to hospitals. Over the years, OpenMRS implementers have built out common features in their own, custom frontends, using different technologies. This has led to development happening in siloes instead of collaboratively. The OpenMRS Community is moving towards new frontend technology that will reduce barriers to sharing and collaboratively developing features. This session introduces you to the new technologies and approaches that make up the OpenMRS 3.0 Framework.

Session Objectives

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

  1. Describe the evolution of OpenMRS technologies
  2. Describe the key components of the OpenMRS 3.0 Framework & OHRI package
  3. Discuss the difference between the 3.0 Framework, OpenMRS distributions, and packages (ie: OHRI)
  4. Identify the benefits of using OpenMRS 3.0 | OHRI technologies
