How to know the steps to use OpenMRS for my clinical practice?

I have come to know about OpenMRS in some publications regarding open source Electronic Health records. However, I am not able to understand how it works at the application level. I am a clinician and researcher, not much aware of programming languages. Please guide me to use OpemMRS for recording my patient data. Regards

@drnivedita have you looked at Implementer Documentation - Documentation - OpenMRS Wiki

Just opening from the link you send. Let me check. Thanks and regards.

Is OpenMRS is only for organisation purposes or it may be used for personal clinic purposes with not much technical support?

It can be used for clinics, hospitals, and organisations . so when you actually look at https://openmrs.org/ you notice we serve over 16M active patients worldwide.

You can actually use it in a clinic without much technical support .

we have different flavors here
