Hi everybody in the OpenMRS community. I am a volunteer in Canada helping a remote village in Haiti to access medical care through a newly built clinic. We are thinking of configuring and using OpenEMR at that clinic when we open. We downloaded version 5 and are trying to understand how everything works, using the Video tutorials. We have starting setting up the facility, some users, etc… We hope that the OpenMRS community will help us achieve a successful set-up and be a resource for us for troubleshooting and problem solving. Thank you!

Hi. My name is Nina and I am a Computer Science graduate from Ireland.

I have been going through the process of learning how to build and run the tests. I am keen to try contribute to an issue.

I have a technical issue with my login on the site - perhaps someone could tell me if this is normal?

When I go to this page it tells me that I am logged in: https://id.openmrs.org/

However when I visit this page it tells me that I am not logged in and my username / password is not recognised: https://issues.openmrs.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa

I have tried resetting my password.

Is this normal? Thanks!

Oh right sorry. Thanks for the link.

Hello, my name is Wesley Romulus. I am trying to learn how to use OpenEMR in an upcoming rural medical clinic. I am an administrator/user, not a programmer. I have encountered a difficulty in creating new patient. I need help from the community to solve this issue.
