Our Service Provider Wiki page defines service providers as an organization that has the commitment and capacity to perform software development, advising, training, and/or implementation work using and promoting products in the OpenMRS ecosystem.
During our Thursday discussion, @janflowers explained that these are organizations that provide OpenMRS-related ervices as a core part of their work. This is not necessarily a group that is engaged in OpenMRS work as one part of a larger portfolio. She gave some examples of service providers, including Mekom and Intellisoft.

What value do you think service providers gain from their partnership with OpenMRS?
