Good day peeps I'm currently working on modifying OpenEmr for use in Nigeria...I plan to host on a server and then ask hospitals to register and use the web based application. I am planning to work with the ministry of health and National Health Insurance scheme (NHIS) to develop a National Uniform Hospital Numbering System (NUHON) every person has a unique no which is the same regardless of facility.

I need your views on my project..the pros and cons. And I will appreciate people who will also assist in modifying the is already hosted. Thanks

I have used OpenEMR to teach students and I think this open source electronic health record is very adequate for the outpatient experience. It doesn't have the necessary modules for hospitals though
