Have you implemented OpenMRS? Please participate in the OpenMRS Implementation Site Survey 2018 by 15th Oct '18

The Regenstrief Institute at Indiana University is conducting a survey to understand the overarching utilization and impact of OpenMRS. This information is intended to inform the development and implementation of an M&E framework for OpenMRS implementation sites.

The last publicly available implementer survey was conducted in 2012 and covered only eight (8) implementation sites. This survey attempts to systematically capture data from a larger representative sample of implementations (active and closed). The results of this survey will be disseminated to the widest possible audience of implementers as well as shared on Talk and other OpenMRS Forums. This information will give us a broader understanding of the use of OpenMRS globally. De-identified, aggregate (by region) survey data will be made publicly available to the community through a report and a peer-reviewed publication.

If you are an organization that is currently using or has previously used OpenMRS (in any form or distribution), please fill out this survey form: https://tinyurl.com/openmrs-survey. We estimate no more than 20 - 30 minutes to complete the survey. We will be accepting responses until November 15th, 2018.

We thank you for your interest in sharing your experience & learnings for the benefit of the OpenMRS community!

FAQs: Should implementers using OpenMRS distributions like Bahmni, KenyaEMR fill out this survey? A: Yes! Please fill out the survey if you’re using OpenMRS in any form in your deployment. There is a question in the survey where you can indicate what distribution you are using.

Hi @ngoel2 should we fill the form once for each implementation? It looks like the questionnaire is per implementation. If yes this could be cumbersome for orgs that manage multiple implementations.

Hi @mksd - yes the form is one per implementation. If you’re running multiple implementations you can report the data in bulk using an excel sheet for easy reporting. Download the excel sheet here and email it to me with your responses at nehagoel@jhu.edu.

Does that help?
