  2. Slack : #community channel for regular discussions. Please see here for details

NOTE: Bahmni Lite does not contain Odoo or OpenELIS. For customers who use full Bahmni, they will need to wait for Bahmni Standard release, later in the year, which will be packaged for hospitals with Lab & Odoo. The LITE version is for clinics/hospitals who only want EMR & Lightweight Billing (crater). Read more about the differences here. If you wish to try out the current development version of Bahmni Standard, you can still try it from the docker bahmni-standard subfolder.
