The OpenELIS guide has been developed by and for the OpenELIS community with the content applicable to most global implementers of OpenELIS.  The objective of this guide is to enable the use of staff and resources within the Ministry of Health and build capacity in the government structure. The guide (as illustrated in the figure below) steps through all the stages of an OpenELIS implementation: from the point of the first meeting with a laboratory to evaluation of the OpenELIS installation and routine maintenance of the system. Therefore, implementers can decide at what stage they wish to be involved and refer to this guide to determine the steps required.
