About the event

The annual Implementers Meeting began in 2006 as a way to bring members of the community together during a dedicated amount of time to collaborate, share implementation experiences, and find ways to improve OpenMRS.

Who should attend

  • People new to OpenMRS who want to connect to others using the platform around the world
  • Experienced OpenMRS implementers who want to share their experiences and learn from others
  • OpenMRS platform developers - anyone building systems to integrate with or extend OpenMRS
  • Developers of related health and healthcare application software
  • You!

Why you should attend

This meeting provides an opportunity for developers to collaborate and improve their technical skills in OpenMRS, implementers to share their best practices from implementations, and users to propose and prioritize their top features in future releases of the software. Different from the previous meetings, the 2011 Implementers Meeting will also include visits to OpenMRS implementation sites along with a discussion afterward for participants to share their experience and suggestions.

This year’s meeting will provide an opportunity to visit to an OpenMRS implementation site. Seats are limited, so please indicate on your registration form if you are interested in participating.
