OpenEMR is ONC-ATB Ambulatory EHR 2011-2012 certified electronic medical records software with scheduling, prescription, billing and security modules. It’s free open source software (FOSS), which makes it user customizable. It is installed either on a single machine acting as a web-server in an office or on a hosted server.
Either way users access OpenEMR thru a web browser. Patient and visit information is stored in a database and accessible for reporting.
OpenEMR is a mature electronic health record system. It can track patient demographics, vitals, immunizations, medications, prescriptions, conditions, risk factors, visit clinical notes, and user specified variables. The real strengths of the program are its’ affordability, extensive user and support base, translation features, CCHIT certification and ability for users to customize.

Hardware & software requirements:
A local installation of the system would not require any cable/dsl internet access to run OpenEMR. Computers specified here are off the shelf desktops or laptops. RAM memory required is minimal (1GB) and hard drives sizes are not important for the workstations, because the processing and data storage is done on the web server (internal or hosted). Each computer will need a monitor, keyboard, mouse and a 10/100 Gigabit Ethernet LAN capability. (Either a built-in RJ-45 port or NIC card). To simplify all computers should have the same operating systems (Windows- XP, Vista, Win7), and have Mozilla Firefox browser software.
A user on a typical local web server would access OpenEMR with: http://localhost/openemr. An example of using an external hosted web server: www.openemr.myclinic.com Enter that address into a browser window and a real OpenEMR pops up
Web server. (1-Administrator/office in secure area)
Should be most capable computer (2GB RAM, 200GB storage+, dual processor) ideally web server would have redundant hard drives (RAID 1). (External hosting means local web server and router not necessary but cable /DSL then mandatory).
• Apache/MySQL/PHP software package (XAMPP,LAMP,MAMP),
• Windows Operating system software (e.g., XP, Vista, Win 7,8)
Workstations (4 Receptionist, medical assistant, 2-provider)
• Windows Operating system software (e.g., XP, Vista, Win 7,8),
• Web browser software (Mozilla Firefox, other standard browsers),
Router. (Hardware- 5 port & cat 5/6 cables to connect each computer to the router. Need to be able to assign static addresses, & have configurable firewall for security).
When you use cloud based servers you need to setup a workstation (PC/IPad) with average internet connection only.
