2017 OpenMRS Implementers' Conference
The 2017 Implementers' Conference will be held at Umodzi Park in Malawi during the month of December. This page will be updated as the development of the conference planning progresses after each of our weekly meetings.

"eHealth to promote evidence based health service delivery and interoperability".

This years' theme focuses on how eHealth could help improve delivery of health service at the patient level or point of care (support decision and data processes) and how eHealth could support planning for health service delivery.

The key components within this scope are:
- eHealth: the ICT technologies
- Data use: how eHealth supports the collection and utilization of data at the patient level.
- Interoperability to strengthen data exchange between systems.

OpenMRS has helped revolutionise management of patients and patient level data at the point of care in low income countries through a range of tools in its architecture. Due to the program based approach that has been followed in improving their health systems, many countries now have large data sets in disparate electronic data sets. This has made it difficult to conduct cross analysis of related data to support decision making. OpenMRS has particularly been vital in facilitating health service delivery by incorporating standards and protocols to enable interoperability with other systems. The interoperability framework that OpenMRS has adopted is helping the delivery of health service at the patient level and decision making by making it easier to share data with these systems.

Propose session ideas
Its an unconference! If you've never been to an unconference before, imagine a traditional conference with incredibly useful chats with colleagues in the small breaks between dry presentations with one person talking in from of a room of people checking their email and then take away the dry presentations and fill the conference with the incredibly useful interactions. That's your unconference, where attendees determine the agenda.

If you're attending OMRS17, start sharing your ideas now for sessions you'd like to see at the conference:

Unconference Sessions

Lightning Talks

An hour-long session where a dozen presenters each get no more than 5 minutes to stand up a present to the group. We get introduced to some of the great work the community  is doing in the lightning talk session. These are a great way to introduce work or ideas to the community to spark greater interest. If you have something you'd like to share, make sure you can fit your ideas within the strictly enforced 5-minute limit and propose your lightning talk at ....


The demonstrations session is an opportunity for people to set up a "booth" (e.g., a laptop  any materials) in a room and demonstrate their ideas/work to small groups visiting each demonstration. You would end up giving a brief presentation multiple times to small groups of attendees with the opportunity to answer their questions and discover new collaborative opportunities. If you want to demonstrate your work, register your interest at ....


The traditional OpenMRS hackathon will be held during the 2 days after the event, 15-16 December, 2017. The hackathon is free for developers to attend, but separate registration is required because space is limited.
