OSUOSL Hosts OpenMRS Development

by OSUOSL Admin on Mon, Jan 12 2009

OpenMRS is an open source electronic medical record system framework. Led by the Regenstrief Institute and Partners In Health, OpenMRS has been implemented in several countries including South Africa, Kenya, Rwanda, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Uganda, and Tanzania.

The Oregon State University Open Source Lab is providing hosting for the OpenMRS Development Website including a Trac instance at http://dev.openmrs.org and the OpenMRS subversion repository. We are happy to provide services to OpenMRS and support their efforts in bringing usable medical information systems to developing countries where HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis are a major problem.

"We've been growing the OpenMRS community for over four years now, largely building up our online community presence in our spare time. Fortunately, we grew beyond the point where this hosting approach made sense for us. In our conversations with the top open source projects, Oregon State University's Open Source Lab was repeatedly introduced as a perfect transition strategy for an organization like ours. I've found them to be the perfect balance of fun and easy to work with as well as professional when it counts. We are confident in their ability to manage our mission critical code repository and online web presence. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!" -- Paul Biondich, co-founder, OpenMRS
