Date:11/16/2009

outstanding model for the millions of men, women and children throughout the developing world."

The new East African Center builds upon nearly two decades of IU School of Medicine and Regenstrief collaboration with Moi University in Eldoret, Kenya. This collaboration is responsible for the Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare (AMPATH), one of sub-Saharan Africa's largest health care programs. It is served by the AMPATH Medical Record System (AMRS), the first and most successful outpatient electronic medical record system in sub-Saharan Africa.

Today the AMRS serves 46 urban and rural health centers in western Kenya and contains more than two million visit records for more than 100,000 Kenyans. AMRS has spawned OpenMRS, a free open-source electronic medical record system that is now the most widely adopted electronic medical record system in the developing world. OpenMRS is used in Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Malawi, as well as Peru and Haiti. It also has been implemented in several health centers in the United States.

OpenMRS pioneer Paul Biondich, M.D., a Regenstrief Institute investigator who is an associate professor of pediatrics at the IU School of Medicine and director of informatics for AMPATH, co-directs the East African Center of Excellence in Medical Informatics. Abraham Siika, M.D., of Moi University and a former RegenstriefMoi biomedical informatics fellow, is also a co-director of this regional Center of Excellence.

The new five-year grant supports the reinstatement of the Regenstrief-Moi biomedical informatics fellowship program which will increase health informatics capacity throughout East Africa using a variety of approaches. This funding will allow prospective fellows to spend one to two years in Indianapolis pursuing a master's degree in clinical research or health informatics. The following fellowship year will be spent in Eldoret developing, implementing and st
