Extending & Customizing OpenMRS

A session at OpenMRS Worldwide Summit 2015

  • Daniel Kayiwa

Wednesday 9th December, 2015

9:00am to 6:00pm (SMT)

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.
