About the Open Concept Lab category

Open Concept Lab (OCL) provides real-time electronic access to terminologies, like CIEL, and enables OpenMRS implementations to subscribe to a concept dictionary managed in a shared environment.

The OCL community develops and supports a suite of open source tools that are free to download and use, including the FHIR-enabled OCL Terminology Server, the OCL TermBrowser, and the OpenMRS Dictionary Manager. OCL also supports OCL Online, which is a shared, cloud-based instance of all OCL tools hosted at openconceptlab.org pre-loaded with terminologies important to low- and middle-income countries.

This category is intended for discussion about OCL’s tools, including technical questions and sharing ideas, suggestions, and best practices with managing terminologies and concept dictionaries.
