OpenMRS is an open-source, robust electronic health record (EHR) platform that is supported by a large global network and used in over forty countries. We explored what factors lead to successful implementation of OpenMRS in resource constrained settings. Data sources included in-person and telephone key informant interviews, focus groups and responses to an electronic survey from 10 sites in 7 countries. Qualitative data was coded through independent coding, discussion and consensus. The most…

Open-Source Electronic Health Record Systems for Low-Resource Settings: Systematic Review
TLDR
Five open-source EHR systems are evaluated and compared following a multidimensional methodology to provide informed recommendations to other implementers, developers, and health care professionals and it is hoped that the results can guide decision making when needing to adopt, install, and maintain an open- source EHR solution in low-resource settings.
Success criteria for electronic medical record implementations in low-resource settings: a systematic review
TLDR
This systematic literature review finds highly reliable data handling methods, human resources and effective project management, as well as technical architecture and infrastructure are all key factors for successful EMR implementation.
Users’ perception on factors contributing to electronic medical records systems use: a focus group discussion study in healthcare facilities setting in Kenya
TLDR
End users generally believed that the EMRs improved the work process, with multiple factors identified as facilitators and barriers to their use, while infrastructural issues posed as the greatest barrier.
Adaptation of a web-based, open source electronic medical record system platform to support a large study of tuberculosis epidemiology
TLDR
The information system served the study objectives well despite requiring some significant adaptations mid-stream, and OpenMRS can be an effective research data system in resource poor environments.
Development and Deployment of the OpenMRS-Ebola Electronic Health Record System for an Ebola Treatment Center in Sierra Leone
TLDR
The most comprehensive adaptable clinical EHR built for a low-resource setting health emergency is presented, which is designed to address the main challenges of data collection in highly infectious environments that require robust infection prevention and control measures and it is interoperable with other electronic health systems.
