Based out of Detroit, MI, Team fEMR is addressing the lack of data collection, communication, and research in short-term medical missions. Their free and open-source electronic medical records system is designed specifically for short-term medical teams volunteering in areas with limited access to the Internet or electricity. It has been used around the world since 2014 by medical teams from across the US. By collecting and examining their data, the goal of Team fEMR is to improve health outcomes for those in hard-to-reach locations.
