Join Open OSP Service Cooperative

We’re a cooperative. That means we’re a little different from all other EMR support providers. If you wish to  purchase Open OSP  EMR support services, you need to become a member of the Open OSP Service Cooperative.

 

If you support our goals and principles, you can join Open OSP even if you do not wish to purchase support services.
