Hello, I am a rural community health nurse in Tanzania. My clinic is considering OpenMRS as an EMR for the clinic. However, we do not have IT personnel here, and my computer skills are basic. How difficult is it to set up a basic clinic setup of OpenMRS? Is there someone in Tanzania already using it for clinical purposes that I could speak with? Thanks for any help in advance! I’m excited to join this community!

@katie1rvcv Welcome to the community! I would suggest trying out the demo here to get a feel of what the application is like, and then choosing one of the out-of-box OpenMRS distributions here that doesn’t require programming knowledge.

Hi everyone! My name is Sudeep Rao and I’m a Computer Science student studying in the US. I am experienced in front-end web development (HTML, CSS, JS, React) but more recently I have successfully branched out into developing iOS applications. I’m studying algorithm design and computational math and try to use my knowledge to build projects that help the wonderful world we reside in. I’m excited to be a part of the welcoming OpenMRS community and will work towards contributing to the amazing projects being developed.

Thanks @ruhanga, and yes I went through https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/RES/Summer+Of+Code+2018. Can you help with picking up any easy to start with project or bugs so that I can be fimilar with the projects and OpenMRS flow and can ultimately pick up a project?

(Jeff Hummel) #2032

Hi, I’m a physician with several decades of experience using EHRs reporting for population health on a large number of different conditions. I’m particularly interested right now in what technologies can be used for population health in refugee camp settings to track who the people are in a camp with chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and asthma. I’m wondering if anyone has experience using cell phones for storing patient data such as problem lists, medications lists, allergies, immunizations and vital signs.

Hey everyone! My name is Krizhan and I’m a student at the University of Toronto. I am excited to be a part of this community and really look forward to it. The reason I decided in joining this community is two-fold: to learn more about open-source projects and develop my skills, whilst contributing to a project which I believe really makes a positive impact in society. I’m really easygoing, so if anyone wants to talk, just send me a message anytime!

Hey everyone, I’m Imoh Noah. I currently work as a Software Developer for a bank in the US. I have been working with Java for 5+ years. I mostly work on back-end technologies. I just came across OpenMRS and I’m intrigued to learn more about it and see what ways I can help.

I am going through the “Getting Started as a Developer” page to setup my environment and learn more about the application.
