Calling all users and developers of OpenEMR, we want to hear from you! We would like to know why you use or contribute to OpenEMR, what impacts the community has made on you, and why others should be get involved. Please reply to this thread, or, if you’d rather reach out to me privately you can message me.
I’ll start the discussion…
I joined the community several years ago because I was studying to be a nurse and wanted to use my software development skills to use on a project related to my passion for health care. As the years went by I began to become quite passionate about healthcare in developing nations; having been on a couple of medical mission trips outside of the US I saw first-hand how OpenEMR can benefit at-risk populations.
Today, as a nurse and healthcare IT professional I continue to contribute to OpenEMR because I value open-source software and believe this community can provide a valuable tool for improving patient care around the world.
I can’t wait to hear all the stories from members of our community!
