Under Construction / Update

The following content is being updated.  

The purpose of this page is to highlight technologies that can support the OpenHIE Architecture and OpenHIE workflows.  Please note: 

  • The community is moving toward validating parts of the OpenHIE Architecture Specification that can be supported with specific software.  Once completed, this page will be updated to specify parts of the specification that are supported.  
  • The following software is not intended to be a complete or thorough list.  
  • There are also commercial offerings which may meet the the OpenHIE specification.

Software Description

Interoperability Layer

OpenHIM - GitHub

Docker:

Open Health Information Mediator (OpenHIM) is a middleware system that aims to enable easier interoperability between disparate health information systems; essentially this piece of software allows difference systems to talk to each other and exchange information.
Terminology Services
DTS Web site with Links to softwareDistributed Terminology System (DTS) is an integrated set of open source components that provides comprehensive terminology services in distributed application environments. DTS supports national and international data standards, which are a necessary foundation for comparable and interoperable health information, as well as local vocabularies. Typical applications for DTS include clinical data entry, administrative review, problem-list and code-set management, guideline creation, decision support and information retrieval.
Client Registry



MEDIC CR

MEDIC CR - GitHub MEDIC Client Registry is a master patient index developed under Mohawk College's Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) grant to build and a test version of the pan-Canadian Electronic Health Record System blueprint as prescribed by Canada Health Infoway. This reference implementation project is intended to assist developers in the development of Client Registry software, customer interfaces (as a test interface), in demonstration XDS infrastructures, or in staging environments.
Client Registry

OpenEMPI - Website

Open Enterprise Master Patient Index (OpenEMPI) is an open source implementation of an Enterprise Master Patient (EMPI) which is a repository that maintains a registry of all patients across an enterprise. An EMPI provides many benefits including:

  • Maintains a central registry of all patients and their demographics, assigning a unique identifier to each patient
  • Eliminates duplicate patient registration entries that result due to changes in patient demographics (patient moved to another location), data entry errors during patient registration, or missing demographic information.
  • Provides record locator service by enabling physicians across the enterprise to identify which health care providers a patient has visited
Shared Health Record

Software Repository

NO LONGER SUPPORTED

Open Medical Record System (OpenMRS) is a collaborative open-source project to develop software to support the delivery of health care in developing countries. OpenMRS provides an electronic medical record platform that allows a number of add-on modules to help OpenMRS function better for you.

Health Worker Registry

iHRIS.org

Docker Hub

GitHub for Docker

Open Source Human Resource Infomation System (iHRIS) is an open-source software that supplies health-sector leaders with information to track, manage, and plan the health workforce. iHRIS captures high-quality data on health worker numbers, skills, qualifications, locations, and more.

Interoperability ServiceEntity Matching Service
The purpose of the Entity Matching Service is to enable matching in a single list of patientshealth workersfacilities or other entities or to find potential matches between two lists of the same entities.
Interoperability ServiceOpenInfoMan

GitHub

Docker Hub

OpenInfoMan is XQuery and RESTXQ based implementation of the Care Services Discovery (CSD) profile from IHE which implements the following actors and transactions:

Info Manager : Find Matching Services (Ad-Hoc and Stored) [ITI-73]
               Query for Updated Services Transaction [ITI-74]
Services Directory : Query for Updated Services Transaction [ITI-74]

OpenInfoMan has been developed as part of OpenHIE and is intended to be the engine behind the CSD compliant Health Worker Registry and to be incorporated in OpenHIM.
