OpenMRS (Open Source Medical Records Systems) applications are an online program that has a web-based integrated database DMS that has no limitations unlike the previous two. It tracks down patient‘s treatments, laboratory data management, reporting and analysis, pharmacy stock management and offers decision support. This is a very adaptive, inexpensive and accommodative and sometimes, a free system. This system allows modification by its users in order for it to fit their requirements and capabilities due to its versatility. It may also be used offline in case there is a problem with the internet or when experiencing low-speed internet connectivity since it has a synchronization feature that allows integration, thus, work done offline gets incorporated with the online database.
Back during the infancy of this software, most people would use it for just two reasons: to store data (especially customer database) and as a glorified calculator. Perhaps because those are a spreadsheets intended or more practical uses or that people are not really that trained to use its features to the fullest. You would even be surprised that up to now there are office employees who, when they are prompted to make some calculations, they would open their spreadsheet software and do the calculations there. However, as weird as that may sound, it is one of the ways that a spreadsheet can help speed things up in the office. Especially if the employee has been working on spreadsheets for a long time that making fast calculations using the cells has become second nature to him. But there are other good uses for this application.
