EMRSCloud: Cloud hosting and implementation support for OpenMRS


SolDevelo Foundation has recently come up with a new service. It’s called EMRSCloud and its main goal is to enable more people to use OpenMRS, by hosting it in a cloud and helping with implementations.

We have noticed that for many facilities self-implementing OpenMRS is too difficult and requires too many resources. In order to solve these problems and let even more people become OpenMRS’ users, we have started the EMRSCloud initiative.

Here is more detailed information about the project:

What services does EMRSCloud provide?

  • Cloud server for hosting OpenMRS;
  • Assistance in the process of selecting OpenMRS modules adjusted to the client’s needs;
  • Configuration of the server and installation of OpenMRS, so that it is ready to use;
  • Regular maintenance of the server and technical support even after the implementation is completed;
  • Sensitive data protection.

Why is our cloud server valuable?

  • It enables to use OpenMRS without the necessity for setting up one’s own server room;
  • It provides the user with fast internet connection;
  • It provides the user with big data storage;
  • It is protected from cyber attacks;
  • It is maintained by the host.

EMRSCloud will be useful for the clients who:

  • Don’t have enough space and resources to set up their own server and maintain it;
  • Don’t have skills and knowledge required to self-implement OpenMRS;
  • Don’t have time to deal with the complicated process of implementation;
  • Have troubles with low internet connection in their local facility;
  • Have troubles with selecting OpenMRS modules according to their needs;
  • Would like someone to implement OpenMRS for them.

EMRSCloud is our small contribution to the OpenMRS Community. We want to share our skills, knowledge and resources, and assist healthcare professionals in saving lives, by providing them with easy access to OpenMRS, and by taking care of the technical support. This way, medical workers will be able to focus solely on helping people and rescuing them.

We are open to hear your comments, suggestions and questions. Feel free to leave your feedback under this post. Your opinion can help us grow and provide current and future OpenMRS’ users with best solutions, suited to their needs.

We also encourage anyone who is interested in becoming an EMRSCloud client to contact us via email: kontakt@soldevelofoundation.org or via entry form on our website.

This looks great and I have been wondering why we didn’t have an AMI for AWS separately. I think a full service cloud offering is excellent. Can I confirm that CIEL is being used in the default implementations?


Sounds great, excited to see where this work takes us as we build out the service.

@akanter CIEL should definitely be the default dictionary used. Regarding AMIs - I imagine that during development OpenMRS AMI(s) will be created, that will be made available for public use.
