eSaude is a Mozambique based community focused on the development and implementation of a Mozambican specific configuration of the OpenMRS medical record software and the integration into a national eHealth architecture.

The initial objectives of the community are:

  • to build collaboration among partners;
  • to improve patient information management for programmatic and clinical care use;
  • to support the adaptation of the Friends in Global Health (FGH) OpenMRS system to become eSaude and meet the needs of the broader community;
  • to align eSaude with MISAU (MOH) national guidelines for patient-level systems;
  • to support eSaude through the national certification process, and,
  • to build Mozambican capacity in HIS development.
