This idea of using OpenMRS beyond HIV was a hugely popular unconferencing topic at OMRS23. One of the big takeaways for me is that the perception that OpenMRS can only be used for HIV programs is very persistent. What are some examples where OpenMRS is being used in other vertical programs? How does OpenMRS support integrations & interoperability with other important systems in the health information arena? How are implementers planning to take OpenMRS beyond HIV in the coming years? How can a Lightning Talk at GDHF this year help bust this myth?
