If you are an implementer and you wish to use our application, please do not hesitate to contact us via We are looking forward to collaborating with implementations of any size and geographic location that wish to use our product. We are very flexible and open to adjusting the objectives of the project to satisfy real life requirements first.


The purpose of this project is to provide an OpenMRS 2.x client for Android devices. The app covers most of the functionality present in the web application including registering patients, taking visit notes, capturing vitals, etc..

The app communicates with OpenMRS instances using REST. It supports working offline (without network connection) with a chosen subset of patients. The database on the device is encrypted and password protected in order to secure patient data.
