The mission of OpenMRS is to improve health care delivery in resource-constrained environments by coordinating a global community that creates a robust, scalable, user-driven, open source medical record system platform. Most deployments are run by independent groups who carry out the work on the ground with technical support and training provided by the collective OpenMRS community of contributors and implementers around the world.
The OpenMRS community has thousands of members in every part of the world. Each software release involved large numbers of these volunteers from all backgrounds.
The mission of OpenHIE is to improve the health of the underserved through the open, collaborative development and support of country driven, large scale health information sharing architectures. OpenHIE is a community of practice made up of diverse organizations and people that are working to meet the aspirational goal of improving health through the better use of information.
Multiple countries have begun to leverage or explore OpenHIE’s approaches, reference technologies, and community processes to support their real world use cases.
