A volunteer team at OpenMRS has been working hard to update and significantly upgrade the OMRS DHIS2 Connector module! We made this a priority given the extreme importance of data exchange amidst COVID-19.
This module posts aggregate data from OpenMRS to DHIS2, and gives implementers a User Interface for an easier-to-set-up OMRS to DHIS2 pipeline, that doesn’t need manual code fixes every time there’s a change to reporting indicators.
Users gain a Mapping Tool UI, the ability to automatically send data to DHIS2 right away or on a schedule, and to map exports so that you can re-use your mapping work across sites.
