OpenMRS Implementer Track


Who is this track for?

Program managers, business analysts, and information technology professionals who manage or support implementation of OpenMRS distributions and are actively involved in associated deployment activities will gain from participating in this track. Participation at this level requires some technical knowlege.

Implementer Track Goals & Objectives


The goal of this series is to enhance your ability to:

  • Plan and iteratively improve O3 | OHRI implementation
  • Increase your technical capacity to effectively configure and deploy O3, the OHRI package, and other O3 apps/widgets, and packages at health facilities.


Once you have completed this series, you will be able to:

  • Prepare and plan to implement OpenMRS,

  • Describe the technical components of the OpenMRS 3.0 Framework and OHRI package 

  • Configure and deploy OpenMRS 3.x and packages (ie: OHRI)
  • Upgrade your OpenMRS distribution to 3.x and OHRI

How to Participate

This track uses a “just in time” learning approach that provides you with flexible, collaborative, and targeted learning opportunities to meet your needs as they emerge. The O3 | OHRI Implementater Track includes “micro-sessions” that can be completed at your own pace or integrated into in-person or virtual working sessions and hackathons.

Use Your Milestone Checklists to design your own Implementer Track experience and keep track of your progress.

You may need:

  • An internet connection in order to access the materials and join the live discussions via Zoom
  • An OpenMRS ID to participate in online discussions on Talk. Don't have an OpenMRS ID? Click here to get one.
