Indianapolis EMS and OpenMRS Collaboration

As the coronavirus pandemic progresses through Indiana, the traditional care system may be overwhelmed by the provision of care to people who have non COVID related urgent care concerns or who are at risk of or are actively dealing with non-emergent COVID-19 infections.  Indianapolis EMS (IEMS) has proposed establishing “disaster field clinics” similar to urgent care clinics that will be designed to meet these needs. These settings will be established under the provenance of the public health department in collaboration with IEMS, with staffing to be coordinated and provided by their organization in conjunction with other designees.  These clinical settings require a patient-level record system that can be deployed within these settings. IEMS has no current patient-level record system in the clinic setting at their disposal to meet this need. IEMS has evaluated multiple systems to provide this functionality within their time constraints and has proposed using OpenMRS as their patient record keeping solution.
