Have no idea where to start


We are a small company providing medical services to mines, oil and gas companies in Africa.

Would like to use this software, but would like to customise it in terms of input, Vitals, more parameters and a format of writing patient notes, reports etc.

Is this possible - I have zero programming knowledge, or is there someone who can do it?

Happy to share my proposals across the network, maybe they can add value?

You could start by downloading the standalone version of the openmrs reference application version 2.7.0 and then play with it using this documentation: https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/Reference+Application+2.7.0

The download file can be found at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/openmrs/files/releases/OpenMRS_Reference_Application_2.7.0/

It would be helpful to mention the country where you are based. That way if there are already people in that country who are doing business around customization of this software can easily reach you.

@peterbrink welcome!

In addition to looking at the OpenMRS reference application you might also consider looking at the Bahmni OpenMRS distribution. See
