  • Extending & Customizing OpenMRS

    by Daniel Kayiwa and Rafal Korytkowski

    In this full-day tutorial, you will learn how to extend OpenMRS's features and customize it for specific needs. Topics covered include Program management, workflows, reporting for stakeholders, clinical functions, and administration tasks. You will also learn to build basic add-on modules to extend OpenMRS functionality, and how to work with other module projects to improve them. We will look at development practices and "best practices" in OpenMRS module development such as using the SDK, using pre-built concept dictionaries and defining roles/privileges for the reference application. The tutorial will be useful for new developers, new implementers and for community members who want to look at the coolest/greatest modules for customizing OpenMRS. It might also be useful for people who want to get new ideas for modules.

In this half-day tutorial, you will learn about different approaches to manage concepts in OpenMRS. You could create own dictionary, adopt another dictionary, improve and add-on to another dictionary. This tutorial is targeted towards new implementers, developers who work on metadata management as well as implementers who are looking at features in OpenMRS to customize for different medical practices and departments.

    Labrador Nature Reserve (also locally known as Labrador Park) is located in the southern part of the main island of Singapore. It contains the only rocky sea-cliff on the mainland that is accessible to the public. Since 2002, 10 hectares of coastal secondary vegetation and its rocky shore have been gazetted as a nature reserve. It contains many historical relics from World War II and earlier, left behind by the British. That is because it has a long history, dating back to the 19th century. It also played a significant role in the history of Singapore.
