Write Code, Save Lives — Open source medical records platform improving health-care in resource-constrained environments

OpenMRS is a collaborative open-source project to develop software to support the delivery of health care in developing countries. We are a worldwide network of volunteers from many different backgrounds including technology, health care, and international development. Our mission is to improve health care delivery in resource-constrained environments by coordinating a global community to create and support this software.

The OpenMRS software platform and a reference application enable the design of a customized medical records system with no programming knowledge. It is a common platform upon which medical informatics efforts in developing countries can be built. Working on Google Code-in tasks for OpenMRS is a great way to join the free and open-source software movement, and at the same time use your talents to help people in developing countries and around the world on the front lines of the battle against HIV/AIDS, TB, Malaria, and other public health challenges.
