Series Overview

A three-part webinar series that highlights iterative development, deployment and user experience of a modular OpenMRS RefApp in Kenya. It will trace the global collaboration at the outset by OpenMRS Inc to lead implementers in designing RefApp EMR used by more than 80 countries. A partnership of CDC, Palladium Kenya and OpenMRS Inc led to a significant contribution to RefApp development by Kenya, resulting in first field implementation of RefApp 3.0 to be done in Kenya. Subsequently, Kenyan developers got together to make enhancements that support of primary care and facility-wide coverage in KenyaEMR 3.X. In final segment, we share field experience of KenyaEMR 3.X system by service providers as they relate their user stories when navigating and using the system to perform their daily tasks. The healthcare providers will showcase use of specific KenyaEMR 3.X services. In their own words, users will describe how this system has made an impact in their service provision.

The final session will be held on July 23. Materials for the series are here.
