Hey Everyone

Please find the summary of our discussions in our last call on Monday during Design Forum.

We have agreed that we will have working calls everyone Tuesday 1PM UTC on Uberconference.

We have also agreed to do an inventory of what user content is currently available. But before we do that , we need to identify and confirm what personas we are developing user documentation for.

As per the minutes of the meeting we came up at a high level with the following personas:

  • New developer

  • Experienced developer

  • New implementer

  • Experienced implementer

  • Decision Maker (Ministry/Country)

  • Personas on the wiki (

  • Curious: interested in OpenMRS and want to learn more or interested in potentially supporting the project in the future

  • User: working in a health setting that is already using OpenMRS or you believe might benefit from it. Clinicians, researchers, community health workers should start here.

  • Implementer: supporting the installation, customization, and maintenance of OpenMRS Reference Application within a health care setting.

  • Developer: interested in building on top of the OpenMRS platform, via writing source code or modules, or want to integrate with OpenMRS? Start here.

  • Testers: people interested in testing OpenMRS.

  • Subject Matter Experts: people who are interested in helping with documentation or new translations should start here.

We therefore ask the community to share their thoughts and are invited to the next call on Tuesday January 15.
