WHO Uganda Quarterly Bulletin featuring OpenMRS!

Great job everyone!! OpenMRS’ use and implementation was recently discussed in the recent Quarterly Bulletin produced by WHO Uganda.

The Uganda National eHealth Policy has electronic medical records (EMR) management as a cornerstone for improving the quality of care provided to all Ugandans. The Ministry of Health (MoH), working closely with World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Uganda (CDC) piloted and adopted OpenMRS in 2011 as a national EMR to manage patient records.
