I am doing research on OpenMRS. I am a student at SUNY Plattsburgh and we are learning the perks of open source software. My question is, how does OpenMRS plans to grow in remote areas where internet connection is sparse?
This question is a bit vague. Can you explain in more detail?
What I am trying to discover is how could OpenMRS be used in remote areas. I am aware that it doesn’t require internet access to operate, but how could OpenMRS grow in these areas without the system being installed remotely?
OpenMRS is used largely in areas with shoddy internet. The community has developed a module to deal with synchronization between servers. I am sure others will have things to add.
OpenMRS is also used by Global Brigades ( i think that SUNY has a student group for Global Brigades). Data is collected at the Point of Care and entered asynchronously into the OpenMRS application. You may want to see if there is a campus affiliation at your SUNY campus.
Thank you all for your responses. I believe I found what I was looking for!
