Title: Open-Source Electronic Health Record Systems for Low-Resource Settings: Systematic Review (National Library of Medicine, 2017)


Brief: This report provides a systematic review of 5 selected EHRs across 21 dimensions such as InterOp, Ease of Use, Coding System, Custom Forms/Reports, Access Control, Flexible Data Model, Offline Support, etc:

  1. GNU Health,
  2. OpenEMR,
  3. FreeMED,
  4. OpenMRS, and
  5. Bahmni.

Bahmni scored very high across most dimensions. A referenced document by the same authors explains their choice of using Bahmni (which is built on top of OpenMRS & OpenELIS) here: Customization of OpenMRS for the LEISHMANIASIS Research and Treatment Centre in Ethiopia (pdf link)
