Change Bahmni Connect App Location

This guide is currently In-Progress. Over the next few months, content will be added to it. 

If you have any suggestions or would like to add pages which talk about the functionality of Bahmni, please feel free to add them.


Bahmni Connect allows the user to access Bahmni in areas where there is limited or no internet connectivity. Bahmni Connect records ramped down medical information about patients. The information collected in Bahmni Connect gets synced with the Bahmni online server (mother location) when the device gets internet connectivity.

Once initially synced, the location gets mapped to the device. If the device needs to service a new location then the application has to be removed, re-installed and then synced to the new location. Please find the steps with the associated screenshots below.

The screenshots below are taken from a Samsung tablet running on Android version 4.2.2. Based on tablet UI and Android version there may be slight variance in steps
