The Rwandan Ministry of Health supports a countrywide installation of the Open Medical Record System (OpenMRS) to improve clinical recordkeeping and patient care. However, electronic medical records also can be a valuable source of data for observational and experimental studies. We describe the challenges and lessons learned when reusing OpenMRS data in Rwanda for global HIV epidemiology research.
