Ethiopia has faced challenges in implementing EMR systems in public health facilities due to inadequate training, lack of management commitment, poor ICT infrastructure, and hardware/software issues, compounded by the absence of a national EMR implementation roadmap. Despite these setbacks, the country has recently made significant strides in deploying health information systems like DHIS2, eCHIS, eLMIS, ePHEM, and EMR. The Ministry of Health is now facilitating EMR systems that meet the Ethiopian EHR standard, including the Bahmni system, which is being implemented in various facilities, such as the University of Gondar Comprehensive and Specialized Hospital. Bahmni, an open-source Hospital Information System and EMR, integrates tools like OpenMRS, OpenERP/ODOO, dcm4chee, and OpenELIS to automate health facility services comprehensively.
