Client's Logo & name in place of OpenEMR on front-end



I’m looking at doing cloud-based OpenEMR installs for a client who’s like an NGO.

However, they need OpenEMR with their own logo and name to appear in place of the OpenEMR.
While I would not call this re-branding as it’s only on the front-end that will display their logo/name and not in the coding part, I would appreciate if I could be given more info and guidance on this.




There is functionality to upload a logo to the login page. Of the top of my head I believe it is under Administration --> Globals.

As far as removing the OpenEMR logo from the front page, I believe that would require custom code (though again, I’m doing this from memory).

Inside the app I think the only reference to OpenEMR is on the about page and the logo on the top left of the main menu. There is no functionality to remove those items as far as I’m aware.


Hi @fkasmani ,

As Robert pointed out.

Several different logo options in globals settings(the links show where these are stored):

Main logo is here:


Thanks for the info.

While OpenEMR is open-source, I hope there’s no other legal requirements for removing the OpenEMR logo from the front-end (if we had to do this from the source-code as Robert pointed out)?


@brady.miller may have a more definitive answer, but the short answer is no, you could take the entire source code and rebrand it without worrying about legal ramifications. We would of course love you contribute any code improvements back to the community so everyone could benefit :slight_smile:

My only concern is that if you modify code in any capacity I believe your instance would no longer be considered 2014 ONC Certified. I believe the only way to keep that certification is to not make changes to the codebase (but @brady.miller should know for sure)


Agree with Robert that there are no legal requirements regarding logo and code changes.

Officially, any code changes would break 2014 ONC Certification, which would include changing the logo file. So, would avoid this if need a 2014 ONC Certified product.
