OpenHIE supports a collaborative space for those leveraging electronic health information by standardizing it in environments with constrained resources.
The OpenHIE Implementers Network (OHIN) provides a peer-learning forum for implementers to engage with one another, interact with the OpenHIE community, and create bridges between networks through OpenHIE hosted events. OHIN events are open to everyone, with special emphasis for the work of country implementers, domain experts, and developers wanting to adopt and implement OpenHIE standards.
OHIN Events & How to Participate:
OHIN takes place in the form of open, virtual meetings held throughout the year, showcasing OpenHIE implementations, technical demonstrations, and other topics of interest to the community. In addition, resources and updates surrounding the community are also shared. Following these main meeting topics, space is also saved for attendees to share insights and challenges they are experiencing.
Community members are encouraged to bring questions, problems, and ideas unique to implementing the OpenHIE Architecture and tools to these meetings to take advantage of the peer-learning network.
