I came to this forum towards the end of 2018 when we started entering the demographic data from our clinic paper records to a customized version of OpenEMR. We have progressed further and now all 1600 patients details have been added, mainly demographic. However, after stopping the paper registration process from 2019 March we are now using clinic notes, problem list, medication and prescribing module. I am extremely satisfied with the OpenEMR and we are using maybe only 10-15% of the functionality of OpenEMR. We are NOT using billing in any way. After having another look at OpenMRS and some of my friends in Australia and US encouraged me to have another look I have again this feeling that the MRS interface is extremely attractive, simple and user-friendly. Therefore I am again having second thoughts about switching to MRS from EMR.
As I stated before a) Total of 1600+ patients demographic info (no insurance, tax or billing info) At lease in some of these 1600 we have b) Problem list c) Medication lists d) Clinic notes for 1 or more visits e) Allergies We are also using the Prescription Module We have added Two-FActor authentication
I know now that migrating from OpenEMR to OpenMRS under the above condition is possible. As experts of MRS what is your view? What sort of a learning curve do we have to do this? (My technical knowledge of MRS is zero! However, I have a programmer that can will be familiar.
Hope I will get advice from you.
Thank you in advance
