OpenSRP supports a wide range of common features necessary for health systems across the world. All packaged up in a human-friendly app.

Client registration

Allows health workers to quickly register clients and assign a unique (numeric, fingerprint or QR code) system ID number to each client. This feature provides governments and donors with a reliable, cost effective tool for collecting data at the source of health service delivery.

Client management

Empowers the healthcare worker to promote the continuity of care for their clients across all life stages. Automated scheduling of tasks and reminders for follow-up visits and services that are due (or have been missed), ensures that the health worker is in regular contact with her constituency.


The “In App Reporting” feature empowers the health worker to see how she is performing against her daily task list, and allows for offline peer-to-peer syncing of the data collected on a daily basis. This greatly simplifies reporting requirements by eliminating the need for cumbersome paper registries and tally sheets.

Workflow planning

Supports all cadres of frontline health workers with work planning and prioritisation of tasks — whether they are predominantly based at a health facility, in the field, conducting home visits, or performing a planned outreach event.

Mapping widget

Integration with Open Source mapping, visualization and dashboard tools, such as Mapbox, Canopy, Gisida, Tableau and others, make for very rich visualizations on a mobile phone, tablet or computer.

Performance management

Enables Ministries of Health, donors and other governing institutions to monitor projects, manage performance of healthcare workers and health facilities, make data-driven decisions, provide feedback on performance, and ensure quality of care.

Supply chain management

Organizes stock, resource and commodities planning. Further helps to minimize stock-outs and wastage by providing an oversight of supplies available and needed in the field — during routine home visits, planned outreach events, or at the health facility.


Integrates well and “plays nicely” with existing, widely-used digital health tools like RapidPro – as well as with other patient record / patient ID systems, such as DHIS2 and OpenMRS.

Improved Effectiveness


OpenSRP is a “next gen” digital health platform that is based natively on the FHIR data standard. This greatly reduces the complexity to integrate with existing health information systems like DHIS2 or OpenMRS.


User-friendly design and easy, intuitive navigation facilitates technology adoption — even in low literacy environments.

WHO SMART Guidelines compatible

OpenSRP is one of the first platforms built to support the WHO Smart Guidelines.  The WHO SMART Guidelines enable implementers to quickly adapt WHO clinical care protocols into their health systems.  Use of SMART guidelines result in standards-based, interoperable systems that can share accurate data.

Improved Continuity of Care

Better communication facilitates better service delivery

Through workflow and decision support logic, OpenSRP facilitates improved and guided conversations between health workers and their clients.

Coordinated care

OpenSRP FHIR data model helps facilitate the coordination of care across the different health workers at the community and facility level responsible for their care.

Danger signs flagged

Through decision support logic, danger signs are flagged, and scripts provide guidance to the healthcare worker in terms of counseling, health education, and referrals that need to be provided.

Client reminders triggered

Through integration with tools like RapidPro, scheduled reminders can be built into OpenSRP. These remind or prompt both the healthcare worker and client, strengthening demand generation for services such as antenatal care visits or immunizations.

Improved Performance Management

Complete offline functionality

OpenSRP, once installed on a device using a data connection, is able to function completely offline.  In remote areas, where no cell signals are present, OpenSRP supports P2P sync enabling data sharing between worker and manager devices.

Real-time reporting

Replaces burdensome paper reports and tally sheets with automatically generated digital reports — both helping the health worker track their own daily performance and automating reporting to their manager at health facility or district level.

Dashboard integration

Connect your data from your health application into a data warehouse to power real-time analytics of feed into DHIS2.

Improved Data for Decision-making

Real-time data access

Immediate, real-time access to community-level data greatly reduces data turnaround times. This helps to eliminate challenges faced by traditional systems where data is captured on paper and then re-captured, often weeks later, by a special (often short-staffed and under-resourced) cadre of data capturers into electronic platforms.

Reducing data duplications

Enhanced search and matching functionality allows the healthcare worker to easily find family members – for example, siblings – based on the details of a household, household head or primary caregiver. This all helps to increase data accuracy and reduce data duplication.
