Client Registry



Image Added
Website
SanteMPI SantéMPI is a proven, next-generation, fully featured Master Patient Index/Client Registry (MPI/CR) platform designed to overcome barriers to leveraging person-centered data as a catalyst for transforming health systems. It is an essential national digital health infrastructure component that leverages unique identity to facilitate data consolidation, harmonization, sharing, and building health information exchanges (e.g., OpenHIE) to establish interoperability across multiple software solutions. It’s flexible architecture and online/offline capability also supports large scale registration programs such as COVID-19 vaccination registration, and birth and death updates to a CRVS. SantéMPI fulfills these essential roles by implementing all relevant interoperability specifications and requirements related to Client Registry in the OpenHIE specification, including Client Registry as a service, HL7 FHIR, and widely deployed legacy standards like HL7v2. SantéMPI is a PATH Digital Square MPI “global good”, that helps create and liberate the power of high-fidelity data to maximize return on investment for both existing and future digital health solutions.

Open Client Registry (OpenCR) is an open source and standards-based client registry. Client registries use sophisticated record linkage processes to uniquely identify patients across multiple health information systems in facilities, pharmacies, lab systems, and elsewhere. As a critical component of an interoperable health information exchange (HIE), it allows patients to be tracked across facilities and decreases instances of duplicate and incomplete records, as well as interruptions in treatment. It is a necessary tool in public health to help manage patient safety and care coordination, monitoring, reporting, surveillance, and medical research.

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

The Global Healthsites Mapping Project is building a global commons of health facility data by making OpenStreetMap useful to the medical community and humanitarian sector. This open data approach invites organizations to share health facility data and collaborate to establish an accessible global baseline of health facility data. The project supports individual facility updates and publishes national lists of downloadable health facility data in accessible formats (GEOJSON CSV SHP). The API allows regional analysis and publishes a signature domain and service domain for each facility.

It is designed for governments or NGOs who need a flexible solution which enables them to integrate and connect any system and comes with fully-fledged user management and auditing capabilities.

Lightning relies on the same tried-and-trusted core technology as the OpenFn Toolkit and iPaaS (in use since 2014) and comes with an improved, visual interface for building integrations. It is also compatible with OpenFn's 60+ adaptors, which are open-source modules for connecting with any REST API, databases, and commonly used apps in public health (incl. CommCare, DHIS2, and more). 

N.B. OpenFn.org also provides an enterprise integration platform-as-as-service (with a free tier) for users that do not have the in-house devops and IT-security capacity to self-host. Implementations are portable, and can be shifted between SaaS and open source variants at any time.

Duplicate GeneratorGitHub

The Duplicate generator is a libray to create synthetic personal demographic data such as given name, surname, date of birth and sex and introduce duplicates of those records with errors. Those data can be used to test or evaluate record linkage and deduplication algorithm.

This project is a fork and an udpated version of the Freely Extensible Biomedical Record Linkage (FEBRL) dataset generator developed by Agus Pudjijono and Peter Christen in December 2008. For more detailed description please consult the website of the AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY(ANU) Department of Computer Science or see the paper: Accurate Synthetic Generation of Realistic Personal Information.

In this version we upgraded the initial code to python 3.6 , added pandas, argparse and numpy, decoupled the configuration from the code and re-designed the library api to make it easy and simple to generate a customizable synthetic duplicate personal dataset.
