The OpenHIE Academy includes introductory and advanced courses. Introductory courses have no prerequisites and are for all audiences. These courses will take place on November 4th. They provide you with the essential history, concepts, and competencies to understand the role of OpenHIE as a health information exchange and how to utilize the architecture to enhance data for decision making at all levels of the health system. During the rest of the week of the Community Meeting there will also be opportunities to take advanced courses. These courses will help attendees develop mastery and may have technical prerequisites.
You can offer to be a co-leader of a course and suggest courses. If you're interested in providing input on the Academy design or to lead a course, please fill out this form. Registration is not necessary to complete the form and all input is greatly appreciated.
The culmination of the technical aspects of the Community Meeting is the Hackonnect-a-thon on November 8th. This is a technical space for software teams and architects to engage and get their “hands-in” or “on” OpenHIE itself and see it materialized Combining the principles of a connectathon and a hackathon we are excited to provide a space for teams to connect their existing tools to OpenHIE workflows and use-cases as well as give the community an opportunity to propose low hanging fruit use cases for the groups to work on.
Great so what does this really mean/look like?
Well we are looking forward to the attendees (that is you, the participant) bringing their technical strengths to the table and bringing their systems to engage with others in the field. These sessions are focused at providing the space for the architects, the analysts, the developers and the integrators within the communities to meet and discuss how to solve active problems as well as start on the fundamentals of connecting systems.
Each course will have a lesson plan and objectives. During the courses you can expect:
Below is a list of proposed topics for OpenHIE Academy. Course leaders will be expected to record their presentation outside of the Community Meeting to ensure that they have a high quality screencast of their primary presentation for others to benefit from in the future. All instructor recordings will be posted in OpenHIE's youtube channel after the meeting.

You can receive a Certificate of Participation for attending a set of introductory courses on 4 November, 2019. Your certificate will be useful as you prepare yourself and your organization in the changing demands of eHealth for local and national implementations.
Recognizing that many attendees may be new to OpenHIE there is no better way than actively engaging in designing, developing, configuring, implementing and connecting to an OpenHIE architecture to learn the fundamentals and build the relationships that you will need going forward. The Hackonnect-a-thon is a great way to work closely with experts on the interoperability of your own projects and products.
The attendees of the Hackonnect-a-thon are aiming to:
Connect existing tools to OpenHIE foundational registries
Learn how to implement workflows within their tools
Jointly work together to implement common use-cases within an OpenHIE architecture
Self-organise into learning sessions and create breakaway groups to discuss topics / show ideas
