OpenMRS is an open source infrastructure for the creation of medical record systems in developing countries. Produced and maintained collaboratively across multiple institutions, this framework consists of an open source data model, a set of core application functions, and a default implementation. The goal of this implementation is to provide the beginnings of an EMR that is suitable for all groups involved with healthcare in developing countries.
