Client Registry

OpenCR logo



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. 

Impact Stories: 


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

SanteMPI allows implementers to easily customize and reuse components to construct use-case and jurisdiction specific dashboards for patients, facilities, providers, etc.

Facility Registry
Healthsites Github repo

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.

Facility Registry

Global Open Facility Registry (GOFR)

GOFR is a comprehensive FHIR-compliant platform for managing MFLs and other lists of facilities. It also provides a powerful reconciliation tool to de-duplicate and reconcile. GOFR can pull facility data from multiple data sources and is interoperable with DHIS2, iHRIS, and any FHIR server. It speeds up and improves the accuracy of developing and maintaining canonical lists of facilities for information systems and applications.

Interoperability ServiceOpenInfoMan


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.

Interoperability Layer, Workflow/Automation Engine



Documentation Site

OpenFn Integration Toolkit

The OpenFn Integration Toolkit is a suite of open-source technologies that are used to integrate systems and automate business processes via interoperability and secure data transfer/manipulation rules called "jobs". From simple audit-trail generation to complex, multi-step process chains or workflows, OpenFn can both coordinate and translate communications between all the tools in a federated health information systems architecture.

The toolkit has been in use since 2015 and includes OpenFn core, engine, devtools, microservice, and more than 60 different adaptors (connectors for commonly used APIs in public health, from CommCare to DHIS2 to OpenMRS) as well as OpenFn Lightning.

Lightning, currently in alpha, brings together all of these components to provide users with a secure, user-friendly, and fully open-source web application to build, run and monitor/audit their workflows all in one place. 

N.B. 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.

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.

Library to Create Synthetic Personal Demographic dataDuplicate 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.
