What is OpenMRS?
Since the majority of clinical data within OpenMRS uses a concept dictionary, OCL offers several benefits for the OpenMRS community:
- The CIEL dictionary. The Columbia International eHealth Laboratory (CIEL) dictionary is a de facto standard dictionary used within the OpenMRS community. Most new OpenMRS implementations start with the CIEL dictionary and older OpenMRS implementations have mapped to it. OCL provides an easy way for the OpenMRS community to browse and use CIEL concepts.
- Managing multiple sites. Many organizations are managing multiple OpenMRS servers, sometimes across multiple countries. OCL can make it easier to centrally manage and distribute these dictionaries.
- Interoperability. OpenMRS implementations often need to share data with other systems. OCL makes it easier to find or manage mappings to other dictionaries or reference terminologies.
- Standards. OCL promotes standardization of concepts, use of reference terminologies, and adoption of FHIR-based Terminology Services.
